For those of us in the Kansas City area there is an "Orvis warehouse sale" Feb 15-17
at the Overland Park Convention Center. I've gone a few times and have come out pretty well. You HAVE to pay attention. Some of the stuff is pure trash, but, there are "gems' to be found. If you tie you can usually get some real bargains on some of the closeout things.
Pay attention and good luck.
