    Interesting my father told me he went there a couple of time way back
    That's when it wasn't full of used toys and other useless junk. I know of only 3-5 dealers that sell militaria there.

    I think most flea markets are like that now. I hear stories from old timers, back in the 60's - 70's you could just find all kinds of German insignia, daggers, armbands, etc by the box full. Now flea markets are nothing but overpriced plastic airsoft guns, t-shirts, and cheap knives. Maybe not all of them, but the ones here in FL are like that.

    I'm must be very lucky that the flea market I go to has a commercial section with 3-5 WWI-II dealers there and a bunch of other dealers that sell Roman and Greek artifacts.

    Amongst the file was this letter from the mother of a POW. It is the most heart breaking thing I've ever found:
