Postcard Fair

Our Nottingham fair scheduled for Saturday 31st October has been cancelled because of the current cv19 situation. Our next event is 6th February 2021, about which we'll make a decision at the end of 2020.  It's really sad, because fairs are the social lifeblood of the hobby. 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.
