Postcard Fair

Although we haven't formally cancelled our upcoming fairs I can't frankly see any events taking place this year. It's really sad, because fairs are the social lifeblood of the hobby. I don't believe we will have any more until a vaccine is available for cv19. In the meantime, we are missing you all!
When we resume, our fairs will as usual feature old & new picture postcards, cigarette and trade cards, ephemera, maps, programmes
