This was a very good show. Found three very nice US campaign groups.

Vintage Productions did a great job.

Had a great tine Friday - my buddy seemed to think there is less German and more US stuff than he recalls in past shows. hHe had a long laundry list and ended up  getting some good deals. I had planned on just helping him find things, but ended up finding something I couldn't pass up.

I got to the show not wanting to buy anything.

Within an hour, I was trying to figure out how to grow a money tree to buy two of Adam R's breathtaking groups! :D

I made my annual 135 mile pilgrimage, from El Cajon to Pomona, on Friday. An outstanding event - as always.

Might have been one of the best shows for medals that I've ever been to. Amazing amounts of stuff at really decent prices... 

 

Another very nice show, Bob!

By far one of the best! I managed to get some great items and meet a lot of really nice people. Definitely one for the books...

Just wanted to add a few thank you notes for the Vintage Productions crew...

 

Thank you for letting us in early on set up day.

Thank you for being very well organized, ensuring a quick and easy check in process.

Thank you for the background music.

Thank you for hosting such a stress free, top notch military show.

 

As usual, your team is extremely easy to deal with and patient with all of the "chronic complainers". I am amazed that you or Danielle didn't smack a few people around (at least no one that I saw!).

 

One last thank you for pointing me to the WWI USMC posters!

 

Great show, keep up the good work

Thanks everyone.

 

This was one of our most stress free shows we have ever done, and attendance was way up on Friday.
