A great show and I try not to miss it. It is always a adventure driving across this glorious country we live...if nothing else...you can always tell folks you have probably just attended the Militaria Show with the longest name...

One of my all-time favorite shows, Robert.  Highly recommended to all.  Some of the coolest stuff we have ever had on catalogs has come from this show, not to mention some of the very best items that are now in my personal collection.  Best of all, it is easily accessible from anywhere in the US since it is just a few miles down the road from the Ontario, California airport.  Be there, or be square.

But Robert, that is why we just call it "The Pomona Show".

Still a few tables available.

 

We are planning on an extra event inside building four in the area that we usually have curtained off.

 

Stay tuned for more details.

I can only attend one day and I'm thinking of going Friday this year instead of Saturday; does anyone know if all the dealers are set up on Friday?

Sales are very strong.  Now I need to go out and buy this morning.  

 

Just a quick note to Vintage Productions, you have developed a very good staff for this event.  I'm sure that you don't receive many comments regarding the staff and I want you know that they great.  One in particular, she is young and has what some would consider sporting an unusual hair color but she carries it off.  She was checking in table holders and is very personable, professional and a great representative of your organization.  She deserves a bonus at the end of the show.  Thanks again, Gregg

(And a plug for Frank Smith...he'll have some AMAZING medals at his table!) :)
