Dike, Iowa Militaria Collectors Show -- April 14, 2018


Recommended Posts

I have attended this show for the last several years and have always had a good time. Lots of reasonably priced items and knowledgeable people who will help with IDing items.

 

If you make it, stop by my table and introduce yourself.

 

I am always looking for patches (U.S. military as well as U.S. law enforcement and fire ones!).

Thanks to all who attended or had tables.

 

Mother nature tried to dampen the show with a spring blizzard.Smaller attendance due to weather but those who came were buyers.

 

Several new faces and our regulars as well.

 

Some great patch deals to be found as well as various bargins for all.

 

Thanks to member oldabewla for providing his POW display table to honor the POWs and veterans.

Thanks to all who attended.Some very nice items to be seen.

 

Seemed the public attendance was down but those who were there were buying and were very happy to see an event in the area.I think there were two home area colledge ball games and the weather was good so the farmers can get in the fields after a couple weeks of rain.

 

Several new first time attendees.

 

BIg thanks to Ron M for the help. Big Thanks to Rons Daughter Shannon who runs the galley,Thanks to Dave for the work on food prep and supplies,...Mike A also a big thanks as he brought cheesy potatoes and were a huge hit...

 

Looking forward to April.

 

Thanks again to all who supported the show as a table holder or attendee.

That was a great event, thank you everyone who helped put it together. It was the first military show I have been able to attend and I really enjoyed it and was able to pick up some really fascinating items at much less then I probably would have ended up paying on eBay. I look forward to the next one.
