Military Museum Enhances Gift Shop
The Oregon Coast Military Museum located in Florence Oregon recently made significant enhancements to the merchandise offered through its gift shop. In addition to the traditional merchandise typically found in a museum gift shop such as mission-oriented apparel, the Museum’s gift shop now includes an entire line of military related items such as branch-specific coffee mugs, decals, patches and flags.
“With this additional merchandise, we are now one of the only places on the Oregon coast where Veterans and their families can find items directly related to their branch and time of service.” Stated Chief of Staff Geoff Cannon. “We now offer over 150 additional items to honor and remember the service of our active military and Veterans.” Also added to the inventory are select militaria items such as vintage canteens, which were recently donated.
In addition to these enhancements, the Museum’s gift shop is also offering tee shirts from the recent visit of The Wall That Heals, the three-quarter scale traveling replica of the Vietnam Veterans Memorial Wall in Washington DC. Volunteers who served on that event in early April each received a shirt for that visit, but the left over inventory can now be purchased by anyone for $10.00 per shirt.
