December 2021 – Writing this on Tuesday December 7th, 2021, exactly 80 years after the Day of Infamy December 7th, 1941. Always a day to reflect and remember everyone that has ever served our great nation. Today is also the first day this winter that we have received accumulating snow here in Belle Plaine, MN.
Boss Lady, Papa, and the rest of the gang hope everybody had a great thanksgiving, and we wish you and yours a very, Merry Christmas.
This month we already attended the Mankato, Mn. Show on Dec. 4th & 5th. We will be in St. Cloud, MN at the Rivers Edge Convention Center next weekend Dec. 11th and 12th. Those are the only two events we are doing for the remainder or 2020. For January 2021, we plan on attending the Jan, 8th & 9th Show hosted by the Fairmont Trap Club in Northrup, MN and the MWCA Rochester, MN,. Show January 22nd & 23rd in Rochester, MN.
January begins a lot of gun show activity. Minnesota has the Fairmont Show on January 8th & 9th, The Crocodile Productions Show in Zimmerman January 14th & 15th, The Southeast Minnesota Military Show January 15th & 16th in Cannon Falls put on by the North Central Military Collectors Association, The MWCA Show in Rochester MN, and the Crocodile Show in Fridley January 29th & 30th.
For Iowa in December, I’m aware of 4 shows. Dec 10th thru 12th in Waverly, IA, Dec 17th thru 19th in Waterloo, IA, Dec 17th thru 19th in Maquoketa, IA, and December 31st thru January 2nd in Des Moines, IA.
We have started bringing our recently obtained purchases of both military and non-military knives, bayonets, and military surplus. Our tables will always have new product at every show. If you are aware of any collections of US field gear, bayonets, fighting knives, or folding or fixed blade knives please reach out to us. We are always on the search for new inventory and greatly appreciate anyone that presents us with the opportunity to purchase more. As always, when Papas Toybox makes an offer on a collection presented to us, we make that offer for the collection in its entirety. We never cherry pick the best and leave you with the rest.
Thank you for being our customer. Papa and Boss Lady
