philb: Thanks for the information. Is there any details about the spring show yet? Kingston isn't too far for me. I always find out about shows after the fact. I need to research the name of the publications/websites that might list the shows.

Do you get to pic and choose through the entire boxes full or have to purchase the whole box load?

Battlestamps not sure about the date of the Spring postcard show..i wil l spread the word when I find out..it amazes me how many people attend a postcard show compared to the sparse crowds I see at some smaller stamp shows !

philb: Thanks! You're right about the attendence at local shows. I made to the one in the Troy area last month and there was barely anyone there when it opened up. I was working this last week in Red Hook on a project in the fallow farm field next to the cinema. We finished early today and went into the nearby antique/junk shop (Rogers?). I picked up a few cheap postcards, but nothing as nice as above.
