Alcon,

I have finally gotten enough responses to set up a venue for a 22 JUN 1400-1700 2019 meet and greet for local militaria collectors. There are three additional people that I do not have emails for, but have contact info to pass the same info to.

Just to note, this is not a full on show with tables, just a gathering, but bring a couple items to show and. Tell and a couple items to sell or trade.

Please contact me by PM if you plan on showing up.

Here are the five ws
When: 22 JUN 1400-1700
Where:
VFW
9501 S 25th St
Bellevue, NE 68147
United States
Who: local Militaria collectors (bring a friend)
Why: to bring together people with the same interest.
What: local gathering of militaria collectors. Bring something to show and tell about, bring something to trade and sell or just bring yourself and learn.

After the meet and greet, everyone is welcome to go out to dinner together to continue the camaraderie.

Omaha is typically 3 hours away from a militaria show or meet whether in Hastings, Kansas City or Des Moines.  This is a good chance to come out and see your fellow collectors in the local area.

BUMP...

 

Gathering this week coming up.

 

UPDATE:  I was informed that our local event will be shared with a party who paid.  We have a nice corner where we will be uninterrupted and can display what we want, but I had to give unless I wanted to pay $450 to rent the venue.

 

I will be bring some items to trade and sell and I will have one Half Torso for display (as a talking piece).

 

I HOPE TO SEE EVERYONE THERE.
