Are there any military, antique or vintage clothing shops in or around Erial, New Jersey?
I will be visiting this town next week and was wondering if there are any of these kind of shops around. Would be nice to find some WWII memorabilia.

 

Looking forward to hear some replies!

Thanks

Your advance required the enemy to turn fresh divisions against you, and you in turn hacked them to pieces as you ruthlessly cut your way deep into the flank of the "bulge". Your feats of daring and endurance in the sub-freezing weather and snow-clad mountains and gorges of Luxembourg are legion; your contribution to the relief of Bastogne was immeasurable. It was particularly fitting that the elimination of the "bulge" should find the Yankee Division seizing and holding firmly on the same line held by our own forces prior to the breakthrough. I am proud of this feat by you as well as those you performed earlier. We shall advance on Berlin together." -- Major General Willard S. Paul, commanding general of the 26th Infantry "Yankee Division on February 1, 1945

I'm from Ohio but I like to stop in at Raul's Army & Navy at 59 W. White Horse Pike, Berlin, NJ 08009 when I'm in NJ visiting family. It looks like Berlin is really close to Erial. Raul's is an interesting store with lots of stuff to dig through and some WWII stuff. I went in there once and he let me look through books of patches with some WWII but the last time he said that he didn't have time to let me look at them. I guess you have to catch him on a good day!

I swear Raul doesn't have good days! His place is hit or miss, but Raul is usually miss!

 

I like Global Treasure Chest in Runnemede. Lots of German stuff but they get American things often enough.

 

Depending on when you are around, check for some of the local flea markets (berlin, Columbus, Cowtown).

Currently looking for WWI items, specifically photos of the 116th infantry regiment, and any material related to the USS Olympia.

Always on the lookout for any rations, miscellaneous personal items, pack filler, care package stuffers, knit Red Cross material, and oddball equipment to supplement the Doughboy display.
Have some extras? I help friends fill out their living history kit, and could always use more loaner gear!

Thanks gentlemen! I will check out Berlin this Saturday. Hopefully I get a strike!

Raul's was more of a miss.. Yet I still managed to find a nicely 1943 dated and named WAC officer's uniform. The price wasn't too bad but he didn't want to drop even 5 bucks.. So I'm not going back anymore though as his prices are ridiculous.

 

I liked Global Treasure Chest down in Runnemede better. Great guys, great stuff and at great prices too! I'll be going back there regularly when I'm in the area.

 

Will be seeing the guys again at the MAX Show in Monroeville, PA. Already looking forward to it.
