    There's 3 Surplus stores here.

    Toppers Surplus, Columbus, Oh. - A lot of modern stuff. Paintball and airsoft stuff too.. There is some surplus, but most is current issue or new BDU's. There is some decent bargain stuff in the bins.

    Cousins Army-Navy, Columbus, Oh. - Caters more to college kids. Military themed t-shirts, back packs. There's stuff in there once in a while. You might find a few patches up front or some web gear. All 60's or newer tho.

    General Merchandise Co., Pataskala, Oh. - This is more like the old surplus stores. I have done well here. I know there are at least 3 others that hit it up for militaria besides me, and I hit it the hardest. There is always decent stuff turning up as people bring it in all the time. He doesn't give it away tho.

    Ceaser Creek Flea Market, Exit 50 on I-71 - There are a couple different vendors with surplus here.. More BDU/current surplus, but decent prices. You might find other deals outside. I once got a Nam era USAF enlisted man's duffle bag of uniforms for $20. Cost a dollar to park.

    South High Flea Market, Columbus, Oh. - This is at the drive-in theatre. It's every Wed, Sat, Sun, from 6-12 or so. I find 1 off things and odds and ends here. Cost a dollar to get in..

    Springfield Antique Mall, Springfield, Oh. - There are 3 placed at 2 exits on 70. Heart of Ohio has the most stuff, but the other 2 offer up some nice suprises from time to time.

    GI Depot, Lancaster, Oh. - Right of old 33 (Lancaster business route). Mostly 80's and up stuff. A lot of the woodland camo NOMEX flight uniforms. Great patch and DUI finds.

    GI Depot, Zanesville, Oh. - Downtown Zanesville. Not connected to the one in Lancaster. Lots of 80's - current. ACU rank, some patches.

    Cousins Army-Navy, Columbus, Oh. - This one has been kinda in limbo for about a year. Always is closed when I drive past it. Owner passed away and the family is only half assed trying to keep it open.

    ****UPDATE****

    It IS open again! They have a new location and are open regular hours. A nice mix of new and used with some good vintage. Prices are a bit steep though.
