Our store is primarily operated by Michele L. Jackson, a Federal Firearms Licensee (FFL) and New Jersey State Police licensed firearms dealer, and Edward “Mickey” Smith and his son, Barry, who have been collecting military items, especially those from World War II, since February 1974. Mickey and Barry are mainly collectors and are always seeking quality items for their personal collection.
The idea to open a store for collectors of militaria began in January 2014 when Michele and Barry visited the Glasstown Brewing Company at the Millville Executive Airport in Millville, New Jersey. At that time, they decided the airport would be the ideal location for a military collectible shop for several reasons, namely because it was the home of the former Millville Army Air Field and the current home of the Millville Army Air Field Museum. They soon inquired about renting one of the former wartime buildings, and as luck would have it, were offered what formerly served as the finance office and post office of the air field during World War II. After renovating the building for a full year, Smith & Jackson Military Antiques and Firearms opened its doors in November 2015. Besides Michele, Barry, and Mickey, Smith & Jackson Military Antiques and Firearms has six other staff members. We guarantee you will have a pleasant experience when visiting our shop.
