In its 26th year, organizers are anticipating hundreds of attendees over a two-day period when the Fall Greater Chicago Antique Postcard & Paper Americana Show and Sale, offering vintage to modern collectible postcards, gets underway in Countryside Ill., Friday and Saturday, Nov 3 and 4, 2017.

"Our vendors bring quality collections and accumulations and are always looking to give free appraisals, time permitting," said Jim Taylor, show organizer.

“Several large collections have been appraised and sold at this show in recent years. Our expert appraisers look forward to seeing new material here year after year,” said Jim Taylor, show organizer and owner of Courthouse Square Antique Postcards.
