Help Save an Aviation Store

In April of 2017 we opened this aviation retail store “Flight Line Gifts” here in Blaine Minnesota.  As the owner, I’ve had a passion for aviation since I was a teenager and have worked in the industry for the past 25 years. This is my 1st role as a business owner, I strongly believe there is a need for our retail services.  As far as we know, we are the only all aviation retail store in this region.  We sell Models, Prints, Books, Clothing, Pilot Supplies, Décor, Rare Collectables, Toys and more.  About 20% of our inventory comes from enthusiasts selling their unique items on consignment. By doing this, we get to provide many one-of-a-kind items for in-store and on-line customers.


Why We Need Your Help

Though our current customer reviews are very positive, we are in grave need of funds to reach out to more people and cover expenses.  We have exhausted our initial investment and are now seeking funds to increase awareness of our business through more advertising. In order for us to stay in business, we really need to increase our traffic by informing more people of who we are, and what we sell.   We are also in need of funds to pay owed expenses and purchase some new inventory.  Besides having unique items, we also proved a service.  We sell pilots supplies such as flight charts, training manuals, head-sets and more.  We received a call from person in desperate need of a WWII Army Air Corp uniform for his uncle’s funeral.  It was a last request and he needed it in 3 days.  We had one in his design and size, and shipped out in time for the service.  So… we are reaching out to you, the aviation enthusiasts or brick-&-mortar retail supporter, asking for your help to keep our aviation business airborne!

Thank you very much for your generosity!

Your generous financial support is greatly appreciated, and will be put to very good used to keep this unique retail store in flight and on course for the community.
