What to sell on eBay ... patriotic clothing

Is it just me, or do other Moms dress their children in red, white and blue for patriotic dates? As a tribute to all those men and women who lost their lives on September 11, my family is wearing red, white and blue today. You might be surprised, but I have had much success selling adult patriotic apparel on eBay. In the past, I’ve sold women’s patriotic halter tops and denim shorts, men’s polo shirts in red, white and blue colors. I have also sold clothing supporting our military. Not necessarily camouflaged clothing, but those clothes that specifically say “USMC, Marines, Army, Navy, Air Force, Coast Guard, National Guard”. Below is a list of items that I have recently sold on eBay:

1. Women's halter top, navy blue with white stars on top, red bottom half. Very unique and sexy.
2. Red, white and blue women's denim shorts. Half of the shorts was red, the other half was navy with white stars.
3. Black unisex windbreaker with "Marines" printed in red across the front.

Patriotic apparel tends to sell well anytime of the year, not just around Independence Day.

Let us remember all those men and women who lost their lives on this date, 8 years ago. Thank you to all of the volunteers and courageous folks who risked their lives to help others on that tragic day. Happy Patriot Day!
