New postcard fair set to start at Manchester

A new midweek postcard fair will start near Manchester next month.

The Manchester Postcard Fair will be held at the Britannia Country House Hotel, Palatine Road, Didsbury, from 10am to 3.30pm on Thursday February 13.

Organisers hope to attract up to 20 traders, with cigarette cards, stamps and ephemera also for sale on the day.

Co-organiser Steve Shepherd said: “We normally do antique and collectable fairs and some outdoor events, but we have wanted to branch out and do more specific events for some time.”
