C'mon out and find what you collect.

 

Handle live militaria instead of looking at a computer screen.  

 

Always always always something good at the show.

 

No one has "I should have spent more time at the office" on his/her headstone.  Come to the show!

Really a great show, well worth any effort to get there.

 

We went two years ago and had the time of our life, got some nice smalls for the collection, exposed our little boy to a full range of militaria and service history, just wonderful.

 

Even got a photo of ourselves with the legendary Mr. Chatt!   :D

We hit the show Friday - has a great time and then visited the Planes of Fame Museum in  nearby Chino, before heading back to San Diego. If you're feeling demilitarized, this is a twosome that will perk you up (the museum tickets are cheap- $9 for seniors and veterans).

Planes of Fame is an amazing museum...

 

I got to see an old J model C-123 there in their boneyard, waiting its turn for restoration.

 in their boneyard

The boneyard alone is worth the price of admission.

My buddy Harris loved posing for this photo - the BAR is from one of the great historical displays at one end of the hall (including Gunny's Jeep from Mail Call).

This was only my third trip to Pomona for the West Coast Show, and once again I was very impressed and came away with additions to the collection.  The Vintage Productions Team does a great job in getting things set up and going, it is a lot of grunt work to put something of this size together.  As with any show it is fun to visit with old friends, talk shop with other collectors and see the vast array of  other items that folks collect.  This is by far the best Militaria show on the west coast, I will be back next year.

This was my first militaria show. It was a lot of fun. Nice balance of US and German items. Pretty much 99% WWII items...which is great for me!

Great show...doubled up and did Mesa the week before...then Pomona...it was worth the 5724 mile round trip drive.
Thanks to Larry-Terri-George for the Mesa Show.
Thanks to Bob and Vintage Productions on the Pomona show.
