Normally my weekends are fairly busy enough to keep me away from the Menge flea market but I had some time Saturday morning so my mom and I went to the market trying to find anything cool (of course I was looking for good militaria). To my surprise I ended up coming away with a rather large haul. At one vendor over in one of the shacks I basically cleaned her out of every medal bar she had (many single WW2 ribbon bars and a full Vietnam bar mount with three medal bars though one of the pins was snapped off), a Navy rank tab that I don't know its age, a Marine Corps rifle expert qualification badge also of unknown age, and a vintage anti Vietnam War pin supporting Agent Orange survivors. My mom found a couple of real old Coke bottles made in Gulfport and two vintage iconic Beatles records (Abbey Road and Sgt Pepper's Lonely Hearts Club Band) along with a vintage Chesterfield cigarette add from 1942 with a soldier smoking. Somehow she managed to bundle all of that together and barely paid over $30 for all of it. I found an Army rifle qualification badge from WW2 at another booth for very cheap and got a couple of plastic bill protectors for some of my vintage money that I've found in military groupings I've acquired over the years from another . Turning around from that I spotted a full three layer medal bar assembly in a case and from all of the medal bars on it the owner was in the Army in the Pacific and received the Silver Star (I think that's what the last ribbon bar is on the top mount). That one set me back $10 but it was worth it since it could still be mounted into a frame for a future display. I saw a couple other nice pieces that were priced well but I just didn't want to spend a whole lot since the military show is coming up on Friday. All in all I must've left there with a pound of vintage medal bars and some great collectibles that I normally don't find at most flea markets, making Saturday a great day to go picking at the Menge Flea Market.
