Hello, I'm Mickey Kiser and welcome to the Americana Store.

Hey folks, another update from the Americana world! The Tennessee Military Collectors Show was another big hit! The theme of this show was the 75th anniversary of the Battle of the Bulge. There were some amazing pieces there, but none more than the display my table neighbor, Mr Eads of Ohio had. He displayed three tables worth of American and German artifacts recovered from the battle area. I learned a lot sitting next to him, that's for sure. I did manage to pick up an awesome WWI painted helmet identified to an 82nd Division soldier from the 328th Regiment. That's right, one of the guys from Alvin York's regiment! Gonna be a little while before I list it on the website, I'm wearing it now while I update! If you are going to be in the Franklin area this weekend make it a point to come out to the show. I'll be in the store today and tomorrow of this week, then it's off to Franklin again for the big Civil War show on the 7th and 8th of December! If you are going to be in East Tennessee plan a trip to the store. We are located at 219 East Center St, Kingsport, Tennessee. We're located just one block over from the antique district in downtown Kingsport. The store front is now called War Room Relics. The Akins Americana website will continue to operate as normally. I will be posting photos of the new store just as soon as I complete the renovations. Just a couple of small things left yet to do. You can now Goggle War Room Relics for the new store location, directions and store hours. The Akins Americana Facebook page will remain the same. I'm going to try something new with the start of the New Year. I'll be doing a relic of the week video and post it on the page. The store has such a variety of era's I thought I would just pick something at random and do a two or three minute feature on it. The inventory currently carries items from the Revolutionary War period through the Vietnam War. Our emphasis is in the Civil War era, but WWI and WWII are quickly catching up! Remember, if you don't see it on the website that doesn't mean we don't have it! Just give me a call and if we don't have it, we can find it!
