Hello, I grew up in a town outside of Charlotte, NC and would like to list some good places to visit if you are passing through. 

 

Time Traveler Militaria: Great shop with a whole lot of great inventory.  About a 10 minute drive outside of downtown Charlotte.  Check the website to make sure you go on a day he is open.     http://www.johnnyg.whsites.net/

 

Gibson Mills Antique Mall: The largest antique mall in the southeast.  Located in Concord, NC.  I have bought a large portion of my collection from Gibson Mill.  Many vendors have military items.

 

White Owl Antique Mall: About a 40 minute - 1 hour drive from downtown Charlotte.  Located in Mount Pleasant, NC.  Have bought many quality items from White Owl.

 

Jacob
