CARTHAGE -- The Barton-Jasper County Collector's Association hosted the largest collectibles show in southwest Missouri at Carthage Memorial Hall Saturday, featuring coins, stamps, postcards and sports cards. This the 21st year for the annual show, with dealers from Missouri, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma and Texas. There were more than 54 tables set up, each covered with merchandise for local collectors to trade or purchase.
"They bring something new to the area," says show organizer Brad Potter. "If they have been to another show, and they'll run across some stuff and bring it back to the area. So you see something different all the time."
The event was free to the public and takes place every spring.
