You should check this page often (even bookmark it) because all the items I can get over here and I don’t want to keep will be put here in this shop page. Going still in the Ardennes with a metal detector, Flea Markets and doing exchanges with friends allow me to get often new items. So you are warned.

Working with my friend Claude on this, we want to offer a possibility for Hard to Find or Patch Collectors and even History Fans to be able to acquire patches that are, in not impossible to find, pretty hard to find if you plan to invest a lot of money. What we offer is simple, like the Wartime Patches Theater Made, also Hand-Made with Gold and Silver Treads, and beautiful. Take a look bellow and you will see what I am talking about. These Patches are also the best ones to fits inside a Shadow Boxe.
