The West Coast Historical Militaria Collectors Show May 12-13 2017


Recommended Posts

A great show and I try not to miss it. It is always a adventure driving across this glorious country we live...if nothing else...you can always tell folks you have probably just attended the Militaria Show with the longest name...

One of my all-time favorite shows, Robert. Highly recommended to all. Some of the coolest stuff we have ever had on catalogs has come from this show, not to mention some of the very best items that are now in my personal collection. Best of all, it is easily accessible from anywhere in the US since it is just a few miles down the road from the Ontario, California airport. Be there, or be square.

But Robert, that is why we just call it "The Pomona Show".

For as much as I know, yes they are.

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.

Sales are very strong. Now I need to go out and buy this morning.

 

Just a quick note to Vintage Productions, you have developed a very good staff for this event. I'm sure that you don't receive many comments regarding the staff and I want you know that they great. One in particular, she is young and has what some would consider sporting an unusual hair color but she carries it off. She was checking in table holders and is very personable, professional and a great representative of your organization. She deserves a bonus at the end of the show. Thanks again, Gregg
