Ok kids….it is time to dust off the Sousa records….crank up the Kate Smith and celebrate Old Glory. It’s also the time of year for me to listen to my brother go on about Turkey’s flag being astronomically inaccurate ( this really ticks him off).
Did you know that Annin Flag Company ( the oldest and largest flag makers in the US since 1847) is right here on Bloomfield Ave. in Verona? They do not sell to public, but right around the corner (or off rt. 46 E in Clifton) is a funky little place called Gates Flag and Banner Company. They sell every kind of American flag imaginable (and other flags as well). If you want buntings, flag poles, flag pole installation, flag banners, and of course, Annin flags, check this place out.
Richard Sole, the general manager will even send someone out to your house to suit it up in a flaglicious way that will make bald eagles fly around your house and cheer “U.S.A….U.S.A!!!”( ok, that won’t happen only because Bald Eagles can’t talk…but if they could talk….I’m just saying…. maybe…). If not, you can email them a picture of your house or bring one in to the store and they will suit you up! Come on people how awesome is that?
Are you a traditional flag person or are you a bunting person? Do you prefer Soussa, Ray Charles, Whitney Houston or Kate Smith?
