The Next West Coast Historical Military Collectors Show May 6t & 7th, 2016

Recommended Posts

Had a fantastic show! Got to meet and talk to a lot of people, both from the forum and not, as well as photograph some really exceptional medals for my next book.

 

An absolutely recommended show!

I also had an excellent time. I got to sell some great stuff to people who I didn't even realize were fellow forum members. Also got to share stories with a lot of really nice and friendly folks.

Look forward to doing it again.

Never lose sight of the fact that the most important yardstick of your success will be how you treat other people - your family, friends, and coworkers, and even strangers you meet along the way.

Thanks everyone who came to the show.

 

Next year we celebrate our 20th year promoting militaria shows. It started with a small 40 table show in San Diego and has grown to what it is today.
