Vanguard has my stuff on backorder, with the earliest possibility of fulfillment being March.  Does anyone know of alternatives, besides E-Bay?

It depends what you need.  If it is CAP specific insignia, especially anything metal, VG is really the only source other then
secondary markets like Craigslist, eBay, or here (post in the marketplace, someone might have it).

Soft goods like nametapes have plenty of sources, as do mil-spec products, including Amazon and Military Clothing sales, but
access to the latter might be a delimiter there.

The MCS I used to work at says no more CAP tapes or tags of any kind, and that probably comes from the AAFES name tag plant at Knox.

They try to make sure there aren't any.

Once again, this isn't all about Vanguard, Inc. It is, and always has been about CAP, Inc. The IP belongs to CAP, and they control its use. The C&Ds come from CAP, not Vanguard.
