Want to thank all the people who stopped by my tables to chat and make purchases. The show was very well attended especially Friday. Collectors from all over the world and had interesting discussions on world events. At my table there did not seem to be much interest in VN era patches,most of the focus was WW2 and airborne insignia. Only a few had interest in WW1 insignia. Very surprised that I did not have one person comment on extremely rare Samoan Marine Lava Lave set of patches and not much on Russian Shuttle jacket with custom patch.The little looking around I was able to do, there was some very nice items to be had. Again thanks to all,it was a great show except for the weather.

Every year I tell myself that i will make time and get through the entire show, say hello to more people, eat more ice cream and take more photos. This was not the year. I only made it through the show at a fast clip and only looking for the "standout" pieces that I look for. Only had one ice cream. I only took a few photos.
Sadly we ran out of bins when we were loading so our own US selection was very limited this year. I like to balance it out, but we did have some nice VN inert ord. that was popular.
The show was really good. I think having it backed up again with the Gun show helped it. There was a constant flow of activity. I saw some great things people found. I would encourage everyone to share more of what they found with each other at the show as it is a great way to build community. I saw a lot of younger and first time collectors there!
Here's a few random pics.

Steve Zahn was at my table a number of years ago.....I started to recognize him as we talked.....I said I recognized him from somewhere......and then he suggested we recognized each other from our stints at Folsom......funny guy!.....he didn't leave any money at the table.

As I was leaving on Friday, it struck me that I didn't see many (or any) wannabe NAZIs. No Auschwitz guards, no storm troopers, nada. It was very pleasant! Thanks folks for putting on a great show!
