This is the auction of the inventory of Galveston Texas own iconic Col. Bubbies Strand Surplus Senter. The Surplus store was packed full of anything and everything related to militaria. The collection includes gear from Civil War, Spanish-American War, WW1, WW2, Korean War, Vietnam, Desert Storm and peace time conflicts. The vintage shop closed its doors for good in Dec of 2014 and has since been relocated to Jacksonville IL where the painstaking venture endured of re-organizing, identifying and cataloging the inventory. The store was open for 42 years and attracted customers internationally.
Meyer Reiswerg was Col. Bubbie. He was an eclectic collector and genius re-marketer. According to “The Daily News” - Reiswergs wife was quoted saying “This is the end of an era”, “This was his passion”.
This collection was for serious collectors and professional battle re-enactors and theatrical productions. This stuff appeared in TV shows like “MASH” and in movies like “Saving Private Ryan”, "Tropic Thunder" and “1941”. Bubbies was also a source for veterans wishing to be buried in period accurate uniforms.
We are selling: latrines – original, gas masks, patches, camouflage pants, shirts, jumpers, and coats, canteens, flags, helmets, mess kits, medals, insignia, radar instruments, you name it – you can probably find it. The uniform collection encompasses over 60 countries. Military equipment, cameras, gas tanks, ski’s, cold war surplus, field bags, magazines, airplane seats and much more. This is a partial part of this collection.
