Best Postcard Fairs - Scottish Postcards

Post by bankiestu » Mon Sep 04, 2017 12:00 am

Can anyone tell me if the fairs (and which ones) in England are worth visiting for Scottish Postcards. I met a guy at the last Glasgow fair and he said Shepton Mallett was the one to go to.

I've virtually wiped out all the Scottish dealers at the fairs up here, but I don't want to waste my time going down south if I'm not likely to find anything.

Shepton Mallett has the most dealers, a possible problem is that some are likely to just have a "Scotland" section, which would make it time consuming. Depends how wide ranging your interests are really.

Shepton Mallet is a big international Fair - dealers from all over including Scotland!! - downside it is only on once a year; next one is March 2018

The PTA Woking fair is on soon - Friday 14th/15th September and well worth the journey I would say: http://postcard.co.uk/woking/woking-sept-17-a4.jpg

The regular ETC fair in London is another big one: http://www.bloomsburyephemerafair.com/fair-calendar/
