Plano, TX (PRWEB) September 19, 2012
This annual postcard show is one of two produced by CourthouseSquare.net in the Dallas Metro each year. It is an event that attracts buyers and sellers from across the U.S. and features nearly a million antique postcards.
"Our seller list is growing for this show. We have added a number of western states dealers that have not been here before as well as several from the southeast," said Jim Taylor, show organizer and owner of Courthouse Square Antique Postcards. "One of the new sellers is bringing a special collection of 19th Century Native American photographs to offer for sale at the Show."
Vendors are bringing original historical photographs and post cards of Texas, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Civil War, Western American, Route 66, mining, sports, political campaigns, maps, Native Americans, rodeo, movie, railroadiana, Indian Territory, Victorian era, Kewpies, 101 Ranch, Border War and thousands of other topical and state view postcards. Volumes of other historical paper memorabilia and ephemera are also displayed for sale.
Available at the show are archival postcard supplies and reference volumes, plus free Barr’s Postcard News issues while supplies last. Vendors buy collections and accumulations as well as give free appraisals of most all vintage postcards, old photographs, and paper ephemera as time allows.
"This show has grown since moving to the weekend before the Wichita KS International Postcard Show. Many of our collectors and dealers travel long distances and this gives them a chance to attend two great shows, with a bit of driving on Interstate 35 between Dallas and Wichita,” said Taylor. “This two show, 10 day period is a ‘Woodstock’ for postcard collectors. It’s about all anyone could want in the hobby and as much as you want to take time to look through."
“Early bird” admission cost, available at 9 a.m., Friday is $5 and covers both days. Regular admission is $3 per person, and is available at 10 a.m.; it too covers both days.
Show times are 10 a.m. – 6 p.m., Friday, October 12, and 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Saturday, October 13. The show is scheduled for Southfork Hotel, Hwy 75, 1600 North Central Expry Exit 29 (east), Plano, TX. Free parking is available.
