Re: Enjoyment From Your Postcard Collection

Here's my view - these days very little on the telly appeals, and I don't go out much - so it's much more fun looking through my postcards. I never seem to tire of looking at them again and again - always seeing something different every time I look at them more and more. Then I might be adding them...

Re: Ebay rant

I am getting very fed up with ebay sellers who cannot be bothered to package their postcards properly. Many seem to think that a single piece of corrugated cardboard cut from a box is adequate protection. It is not. Corrugated cardboard will crease very easily in one direction. This is just penny p...

Re: Large collection possibly for sale

hello postcard buffs! I have recently come into possession of about 200 postcards from various areas of the uk. Some of these have been used-stamp,postmark and message on the back and from the postmark all appear to be around 1903-8. Many postcards are clean-having never been posted and all are in ...

Re: To eBay or not to eBay?

hmmm - delcampe has a lot to offer over ebay and I would recommend ebay sellers/buyers alike check it for themselves - For me, as a buyer on ebay, I'm getting more than fed up viewing the same old/common/overpriced postcards - why don't people research before they sell?
