Well, we leave at the crack of early tomorrow morning to attend the world's biggest and best militaria collector show, The Show of Shows, held for the past several years in Louisville, Kentucky. It's quite a haul for us from Kansas City, but we look forward to it every year. It's always a treat to talk to all of our customers - bidders and consignors from all over the world - and meet new ones as well.
We'll surely bring back a truck full of consignment this year, like we always do, so check the site next week (or maybe the week after) to see what we brought back. I'll try to take some pics and make some blog posts from the event, but the lap-top isn't working so it may have to wait until we return. Here are some pics from the event in years passed. If you're attending the event as well, stop by and say hello! We're located to the immediate left of the front doors - see you in Louisville!

WWI and WWII German collectors - Achtung!
We just received a nice collection of assorted material from an estate of a fellow collector. Quite a few items here - several hundred for sure. Vonn and Anna are in the process of getting it all tagged in and it should be on the site within a day or two (a few pieces may even make it up today). Looks like it's about 75% original and 25% reproduction - but we'll get it all sorted out. I've posted a few pics below - check back on the main site (www.manions.com) soon!
