Minnesota Decoy Collectors

Our group was formed in the early 1960’s to unite those interested in collecting, preserving and documenting the history of decoys created in the years gone by.


Two mailings a year that include a fellow-collector membership guide and newsletters highlighting information and then the outcome of our annual decoy show gathering.  It also includes information on how to participate in our show; both as an attendee and purveyor, as well as, how to attend and/or consign to our associated decoy auction.

Your membership also supports you as a fellow decoy collector - keeping our fraternity and interest alive.

We hold our annual antique decoy and collectibles show AND AUCTION the first week of February.

This year's show was a great success...mark your calendar for the 2021 show

Upon the request of families of decoy collectors, the MDCA will do our best to establish the value of collections and their individual items.   Also, upon request, we will offer suggestions for the sale of your collection that help honor and preserve the intent and efforts of the years of the collectors.   If interested in this service utilize the "Contact Us" icon.
