Inventory Reduction Sale - Everything Must Go!!!

Buy a shirt or cap at the fly-in and wear it for free as often as you like!!!
We’ve been getting a lot of questions about Lee Bottom shirts and caps so we thought we’d include a post about them here.  Each year, for many years, we made an annual purchase of airport apparel.  A few times that order was in excess of $8000.  Then, just after the last bulk buy, the tornado hit the shop where it was all stored.
After the storm, volunteers took home what could be salvaged and washed them for us.  A few months later we had “Tornado Survivor, 2012” and a Tornado embroidered on many of the shirts and caps.  Since then it has all been sitting in storage containers.  This brings us to today.
When the cops found out about our prices, they were sure we were committing a crime.
When you arrive at the fly-in, the price on each piece of our apparel is going to be reduced in hopes of selling it all.  It is time to clean out the storage containers and move this stuff on to people who would like something unique to wear to fly-ins and airshows.  Most of the designs will not be produced again so what you get will set you apart.
Ultimately, I guess what I’m trying to say is that when you arrive you should get yours early.  We’ll be doing our best to move it.
Because nobody wants to be seen at Oshkosh in some generic fly-in t-shirt.
