The Picture Postcard Show 2009 is coming

29 Jul

As well as picking up a postcard of Framfield Church at the weekend I also got a copy of the latest Picture Postcard Monthly (more about that at a later date) which included several reminders that The Picture Postcard Show 2009 is fast approaching.

The Picture Postcard Show (also known as BIPEX, the British International Postcard Exhibition) is being held from the 3rd to 5th September 2009 in Westminster, London and is one of the highlights (if not the highlight) of the postcard collector’s year in Britain.

As well as a large selection of national and international dealers selling a wide range of postcards, the show also features a themed exhibition of postcards, this years theme is The Great British Seaside.

It has been a few years since I have attended, but I hope to make it this year on the Saturday, and when I run out of money I can always make my way along to the Westminster City Archives (less than ten minutes walk away) for a spot of family history research.

Full details can be found on the Postcard Traders Association website, and whilst you are there check out the photos from last years event, and marvel over all those cards on offer.
