After more than 20 years of postcard trading, the last 15 years of which have been attending fairs we have decided to retire. It is a business we have enjoyed very much. It has been a great deal of fun and hard work. But we shall still continue to come to fairs to buy for our own collections and look forward to meeting again the many collectors and dealers we have come to know so well over the years.
We were given wonderful "send-offs" at both of our last two fairs - Surrey Postcard Club at Merrow and Bloomsbury on the weekend 22/23 November 2003. Beautiful flowers from Val & Clive Smith and family and Surrey Postcard Club. We received cards from well-wishers and many "Happy Retirement"s from customers and dealers alike.
See you soon. Au revoir. Hasta la vista. Ciao.
Here are photos I have taken at some of our fairs.
