The Postcard Traders Association (PTA) has attracted more than 50 dealers to its two-day flagship Spring fair at Woking – which it says is its best turn-out ever.
The annual event will be held at the leisure centre in Kingfield Road on Friday May 17 (10am-5pm) and Saturday 18 (10am-4pm).
A number of dealers who have now attended the Surrey fair before have signed up to the event – as well as others who have not appeared for years.
It’s a terrific achievement by the PTA to increase dealer numbers at a time of falling attendances at fairs.
But show-goers have a number of other big events to attend around the country before then, including the Big Surrey Fairs event at Tolworth on April 22; Exeter on April 27; the Royal National Hotel (London) on April 28; and Nottingham on May 4.
Picture Postcard Monthly includes a list of every fair over a three-month period in each issue.
Our May edition is being printed in mid-April and will be distributed to subscribers from April 22/23.
