A wide range of specialist literature, antiquarian books and bibliophile literary works on military history complement the impressive product range of our collectors' fair.
As many of the exhibitors are private collectors and semi-professional dealers, you can often find extremly interesting rarities (one-of-a-kind collectibles) at affordable prices and you have the chance to make surprisingly good bargains ... There are also often private visitors from our area who attend our fair, because they want to sell discovery from their attic or an old family heirloom
