Hi All, I have slowly started collecting postcards advertising local businesses. In addition to eBay what other places can I search on line or recommended dealers? Many thanks.

Local postcards are one thing, but local advertising cards are quite a niche interest, as well as being scarcer, and they may often be collected as a wider subject, rather than for their local interest. If there's an auction house local to you, you may find that they get some of the local material that interests you.

You can design (almost) any postcard you want at Zazzle.
I designed hundreds.

I second local auctions and auction houses. I have gotten some great albums and lots of postcards from them. I also recommend local antique malls and stores. Never know what you might stumble upon.
