The Relic Chest

   Hello, everyone! I came up with the idea of having my own militaria shop back in 1985. Well, here I am today. I finally took the leap and made my idea a reality. History is my passion and I have furthered that passion by obtaining relics from the past. Little pieces of history that you can reach out and touch.
   My main interests lie in the American Civil War and WWII periods. That is not to say that I am not interested in other periods, I just hold more knowledge about the Civil War and WWII. I specialize in collecting non-dug Virginia buttons from the Civil War period. From the WWII period I collect Third Reich Polizei items, Third Reich armbands and German helmets. This is where my real passion lies at present.
   I think it is important as a collector and a dealer to insure that the younger generation discovers the excitement of militaria collecting. If not for new people entering the hobby, it will slowly die out. I have met many good people in this hobby, several are still good friends today. To me, that is half of the fun. To meet others with similar interests and compare notes and collecting stories.
    I work a full time job in addition to running this site, so I manage to keep busy. Email is the best way to get in touch with me. I try to check my email a few times a day, however, there is that odd day where it just does not happen. Please keep this in mind when corresponding. Also, with all of the new anti-spam software being used by various email providers my reply to your email may end up in the spam or deleted folder. This has happened a few times, thus far. If you are waiting for a message from me, please add me to your address book ( or just check your spam/deleted folder. I always answer my emails, so I would not want to get started off on the wrong foot by you thinking that I am ignoring you!
   If you send me something in the US Mail, please email me so I know it is coming. I do not check my P.O. Box daily, unless I am expecting something. If may be a week or two before I get what you have sent me. Due to time constraints and cost, I do not have a printed catalog. All items will be listed on my website.
    My goal is to provide you with a great selection of quality military items! I base this on one main thing...would the item be of the quality that I would expect for my own collection. If so I add it to my inventory. I hope we can do business together! I wish you success in your collecting endeavors!
 Take care- Wellford
