Re: Ebay or fairs? The choice is yours.

I disagree with Tony about fair attendances - York had an improved attendance from 2007, as did Nottingham in February, and Cheltenham has certainly revived under its new management. As for eBay v. fairs, surely these are just two different buying/selling opportunities with separate dimensions. At a...

nottingham postcard fair

The hot gossip around Nottingham at the moment is - what will the free postcard given to everyone who comes to the Harvey Hadden Sports Centre fair on 3 May be? http://www.postcardcollecting.co.uk/fairs.htm

sending postcards 2008

We're all interested in collecting picture postcards (normally old ones) but what are we all doing to boost the current health of them? How often do you actually send a postcard? How often do you buy a postcard from a card rack in a shop? Are modern cards worth collecting? Are there any decent ones ...

Re: BIPEX 2008

My take on the Picture Postcard Show (Bipex) 2008 is this: The event is intended to be a showpiece for the postcard collecting hobby in the UK, one that provides an exciting source of new cards for experienced collectors and a fascinating and impressive introduction for interested visitors. It may n...

Younger dealers? They certainly exist - quite a few in their 30s and 40s, which must qualify for young in the PC hobby. There was a 10-year old dealer at a fair in Scotland last year (independent of her parents) and Nottm PC Fair regularly has a 15-year-old dealer. As for the age of collectors, ther...
