When you are trying to cook for a hungry group of folks in the great outdoors, the last thing you need is to be missing utensils, not have enough burners to cook with, or have cold food. To keep everything warm, you need food warmers, and yes they come included with outdoor camp kitchens. Everyone may not get back at the same time, and it’s always a challenge to have all your food finish cooking at the same time.

We recommend that you make it easy on yourself and get one of these high quality camp kitchens that are genuine military surplus. You can bet that the military has figured out how to feed hungry troops. You can take advantage of the planning they put into the design of these outdoor camp kitchens to satisfy the appetite of your clients.

Since the development of cell phones, the red British telephone booth has become a relic. According to Jeffrey Stinson of USA Today, the Office of Communications in Britain reports there are 70 million mobile phones serving their population of 60 million. With this trend, the Royal British telephone booths have become collectors items. With this in mind, we have brought 2 of these unique and rare phone booths to our store.

These cast iron booths include a mold of the British crown located at the top of all 4 sides. If you are looking for a unique item to put in your business, home or yard this will definitely draw attention from those passing by. Their bright red exterior is a real eye catcher. These original booths date back to the 1940’s and 50’s and weigh 2,000 pounds each. They are definitely built to last.

Researching the Internet and consulting with some our customers who are reenactors, we found a wealth of information on this subject. There is way too much to post here but this is a sampling of what others are doing. If you know of a great resource that would benefit others, please feel free to send it to us.’s World War II Section contains articles, videos of mock battles, a list of reenacting organizations, a living history forum and much more. This website has sections for all historical reenactments from ancient times to the present.

Since 1975, museums, associations and other groups around the world have been creating a living history of World War II. Museums primarily showcase history with impressive relics from the past and trained interpreters to tell the story to the public. Although museums offer an accurate and interesting reflection of the past, it is not enough for many.

Living the Past Through Historical Reenactments
Associations and other groups are more interested in historical reenactments that allow the participants to live the history themselves to better understand it. As a result, the public rarely sees their work. This passionate group is made up of militaria collectors, history buffs, professional military and veterans and can be found throughout Europe, the U.S., and Australia.
