RelicShack.com is a family business
located in Lake Ozark, MO, owned by my brother Kevin and I. Both
of us have spent much of our lives learning and honoring our Native American Indian
heritage. About 40 years ago, I found my first arrowhead. I
was so fascinated by this rock that I carried it in my pocket for months. From
that day on, every time I walked through fields or creeks, my eyes were always aimed
at the ground.
As my collection grew larger, I noticed that many of the arrowheads looked similar. After
getting an arrowhead book for my birthday, I realized there were many other types
of points that I didn't have. At the age of 18, I had saved my money
and was ready to started purchasing arrowheads to build my collection with better
specimens and all the other types I couldn't find (or haven't found yet). I
went to my first artifacts show and bought what I thought was the best pieces of
history in the world. Until a month later, when I found out I had spent
my hard earned money on a bunch of fakes, what a let down.
We totally believe we need good informative Archaeological Societies to help guide the collectors
so they do not have to suffer like myself and many other friends. These
organizations also allow people from outside the artifact community know who the
good guys really are. That is why we are members with many and support these groups.
We have done our best not to allow any questionable relics on our site and promise
to continue to do so in the future with the utmost scrutiny.
