"Our seller list is growing for this show. We have added a number of dealers that have not been here before," said Jim Taylor, show organizer and owner of Courthouse Square Antique Postcards.

This annual postcard show is one of two Courthouse Square Antiques produces in the Dallas Metro each year. The Fall Dallas Metro show involves buyers and sellers from across the U.S. and nearly a million antique postcards, vintage paper Americana, ephemera and antique photography.

In addition to postcards and photos in many formats, vintage paper sellers from around the country will be there with a wide selection of posters, movie and political memorabilia, Western Americana, military and Native American photos; a total of 28 vendors from CA, CT, MO, TX, OK, AZ, CO, IL, LA, IN, KS, MT, FL.

Vendors are bringing original historical photographs of Texas, Missouri, Illinois, Iowa, Kansas, Arkansas, Oklahoma, Civil War, Western American, Route 66, mining, sports, political, maps, Native Americans, rodeo, movie, railroadiana, Oklahoma and Indian Territory, Victorian era, Kewpies, 101 Ranch, Border War and thousands of other topical and state view postcards. Other historical paper memorabilia and ephemera are also for sale. Several hundred thousand bargain $1 dollar cards will also be found.

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 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 9, and 10 a.m. – 4 p.m., Saturday, October 10; with 9 a.m. early bird admissions both days.
