Vendors.

Please be aware that we have modified and improved our show format from previous years by consolidating to ONE, larger show each May to be held at Fairplex, in Building #4. We will be focusing considerable effort on promoting and growing our May 11-12, 2018 event and we are excited to be continuing with the much larger building from here on out. We will be making great strides to provide our dealers with an even better event every year!

We hope you will continue to be supportive as we continue to move ahead. We would like to invite all of our current, previous and new historical military antiques and collectibles dealers to attend our May, 2018 event. Be aware that table reservations will not be accepted without payment.
