Next week I will be spending two days in Jacksonville Florida. Does anyone have reccomendations on things to see, and places to shop for militaria?

 

Thanks,

Drew

I live in Jacksonville. As to any shops, I don't see any here. Do have some nice Beaches, see Ft Caroline, (free). Huegenot Park, a beach that's just across from the Naval Port. Might see some interesting Navy ships coming or going, also drive on this beach.

Heck, we don't even have a good Hobby Shop here.

Lived here 14 years now, ready to sell out and move.

I live in Jacksonville to and like Trooper said, there isnt much of nothing to see in the form of historical or collectible shops. There is the Cummer Art Galley and Kingsley Plantation.Lived here all my life and ready to move on.

 

You could also travel about 45 minutes north or south to two historical forts.One is in Fernadina, the other in St Augustine.

 

Also and all kidding aside,there are parts to avoid. Where are you staying?

Drew,

Yea, the Jax guys are correct. My advice would be to try to spend a day in St. Augustine you will not be dissapointed. Lots to see and do from the fort to the old city itself and yes there is a militaria shop there called the DMZ http://www.dmzmilitaryantiques.com/

I found a really cool militaria store in Jacksonville called B & T Coins and Militaria located at 6630 Beach Blvd #8, Jacksonville, FL 32216. It's a small shop but lots of great stuff. Lots of helmets and badges and clothing. WWII through current. Really nice guy too.

I went to DMZ military antiques last Saturday. I bet I spent an hour looking around his store. His shop is small but he has some really great stuff! The owner is a super nice guy and loves to talk military history.

Not sure, he sets his own hours, I am in Jacksonville and we had a show today. Sorry wish I saw this post earlier. If your free tomorrow I have a friend on RT1 north of St Aug with 4 storage units full of goodies. I can take you to him no problem. Feel free to pm me. Oh his website is in my signature. Bill

I'm in the Miami region on vacation soon, visiting some relatives. Any good surplus stores there? Found 3 online, but that's it. Also interested in anything military. Museums...

Thanks in advance,

Philip

If you happen to be an aviation fan Wings Over Miami is a nice museum. It's on the small side but has a PBY Catalina, A-26 Intruder, and my personal favorite an F-14D. Along with about a dozen other aircraft. I think admission is $10 per adult, at least it was a year ago. Didn't look for surplus last time so I'm afraid I can't help on that front.

came again to Florida and went to my favorite military store down here, DMZ militaria. Picked up a fixed bail m1 and sold a large amount of items. I took a photo of the store to show a friend but will post here so anyone interested can have a look. Its tiny as my room but definetely worth the time!post-162289-0-04689200-1480116230.pngpost-162289-0-80416600-1480116240.png

I stopped into B & T Coins and Militaria in Jacksonville this afternoon and I scored a nice HGU-68/P flight helmet. If you are in the area check out this store. I am off to DMZ Military Antiques in St. Augustine tomorrow.
