In December of 2016, I opened my first Mall store (now closed) for the Holiday season located in Summit Mall. During this experience, slash2gash was born!
Here is my story...
Located in Northeast Ohio, 15 years experience selling at local Markets/Swap meets/Festivals... now brought to you online! I started my business in 2004 as a hobby. Selling my personal Airsoft collection out of a '96 mustang stick-shift, with my knees crammed into the dash setting up at a local Flea Market. My first day I sold $56. Every gun I sold, I would buy 2 more... then 4 more... then.... well you get the point.
A few years later I quit my regular job and was known as the "airsoft guy", I added my addiction of buying knives into the mix. Soon after knives, a fellow vendor introduced me to a company called "Hot Leathers"... and my passion for Bikes and Skulls really took off. I added a few Bike Nights to my regular flea market/swap meet circuit.
Before I knew it, I had ordered so many Biker products.... apparently I went through a name change and now people were referring to me as the "Hot Leathers guy". I suppose advertising "Hot Leathers" on the side of my van for 5 years sort of helped that (which I was never paid to do). You are welcome Hot Leathers.
Traveling further and further from home as the time went by, now I am booked basically every weekend all summer long. My booth can be seen at Rogers Community Auction every Friday, Hartville Marketplace every Saturday, and Four Seasons Youngstown every Sunday... (weather permitting) for June/July/August. Spring and Fall, stay tuned to our Facebook page slash2gash for updates on Weekend Festivals... Johnstown Swappers Day, Lucasville Trade Days, Reinersville Trade Days, Canfield Auto Swap, Stark co Auto swap, etc., all the way out to the infamous Covered Bridge Festival, located in Mansfield Indiana!
I pride myself on treating the customer right. Honesty, with repeat business. That is my promise with slash2gash. You will be informed to the best of my knowledge the exact materials and qualities of my products, where the come from, what makes this better than that, and how to use them.
