GREETINGS from The FLYING TIGER Antiques & Vintage Historical Artifacts!!!
As of today, Thursday, 23 March, Kanae is IN THE OFFICE,
I will be joining her shortly, by Monday 27 March.

especially of Military Artifacts, and some Police & Fire Badges
As many of those pieces on the site were with me on the trip to Louisville & Baltimore!
So, hang tight for a few more days, as there may be a delay until 3/27 to get your order shipped if the ordered artifact is with me on the road!!
Meanwhile, Kanae will be LISTING NEW ARTIFACTS DAILY,
And shipping what she can, through the foreseeable future!
Thank you for visiting. We hope you will find some vintage artifacts here to add to your collection!!
