It is time for the Winter Huntsville show put on by the Alabama Military Collectors rump'n. It has steadily grow over the years and now stands at 180 tables. Most vendors are small dealers and collectors selling their extra items. There is a good sampling of both US and TR goodies. If you live in the Southeastern US this nice little show should be a must attend. Here is a link with the details.
 
 
Hope to see you there,
 
Garth

I was only able to be in Huntsville on Friday but I set up my table and had a good one day show. Had a new dealer for the show this time. Robert "Tarbridge" Wilson. In fact he sold me a beautiful early ID'ed M1 with a SC rayon liner. I needed it like I needed a hole in the head. But Robert will sell you something if you're not careful! So you gotta be on your toes. There was a good crowd there and I suspect there was on Saturday as well.

Ronnie,

Saturday was busy with good attendance...and decent sales.As I am smart enough to get something over him.Ol' Ronnie is one of those slick "Bama" boys who can lull you into doing what they want to happen.I swear when Ronnie paid me for the Helmet...He pulled the money from his wallet and the one bill had "Genuine Leather" impressed on it for being carried so long in there. :D

Fun show.  The only thing I ended up bringing home was an unissued BAR belt, I bought it to resell at SOS but will end up keeping it since I do not have that year.

 

I did find a great Japanese restaurant I was not aware of that was worth the two hour drive over to Huntsville all by itself - http://ilovesushihun...LS_Desktop.html
