The next Pomona, California show is a month away.

 

This is the largest militaria only show west of the Mississippi.

 

The show is held at the Fairxplex, in the largest building on the fairgrounds, building 4.

Located at 1101 West McKinley Ave, Pomona, Ca.

 

The hours are:

 

Friday May 6th, 10am-6pm

Saturday May 7th 9am-5pm

 

Admission is $8.00 for adults and $3.00 for kids. $10.00 for a two day entry. There is also an early-bird buy-in that is good for the whole show and allows you in when dealers are setting up.

 

On Saturday at 1pm there is a Militaria Costume contest, with trophies handed out for best uniforms.

 

For more info you can visit the show's website at http://www.militariashow.com/

 

There are a few vendor spaces still available

Bob

 

Hotel reservations made and my wife is coming as long she can go the mall for some shopping!  What is the cost of the early buy in and is that a presell or at the door?

 

Thanks Mason

This will be my first show as a seller in a long time. I am bringing all my good US uniforms for sale. You won't be able to miss them.
Got a room at the Fairplex and the wife and I are making a weekend of it, I am sure she is excited...yeah right.

 This will be my first time attending this show and looking forward to a great show. I will have 24 cases full of patches. If you saw my items at past ASMIC or SOS shows they are not for the novice or beginner; mainly harder to get and rarer items. Focus is WW1 thru VN. Many WW2 squadron patches Air Force and Marine. Please stop by even just to look! It can't hurt and usually you will see items that you have never seen before except in books like the Kellers and the Barry Stein book which he is working on now.

This is a great show that Mario and I always look forward to selling and buying at. We will have our usual ww1 and earlier items and we are also bringing over 1000 unit and rank patches for $1 each!!!!! Lots of WW2 patches in the lot plus navy rates as well. Should be something for everyone. Stop by and say "hi."

I will have a table selling some of the insignia I listed on the Forum earlier (that did not sell yet), some insignia from a fourth collection, as well as a booth for ASMIC. I will have the Oct-Dec 2013 "Best of the Best" Trading Posts for sale, too. These are 112 pages of the best in military insignia, and include Mort Cohen's "ASMIC's Most Wanted Patches" and A.B.Dickas' "ASMIC's Top 100 Patches", among the best DIs. chevrons, wings (by John Feguson) and some misc insignia. 

 

You cannot miss this show - no one has "I should have spent more time in the office" on his headstone.  

 

Shows are a great learning experience because you get to see in REAL LIFE what insignia looks like - much better than looking at a computer screen.
