PPM has its first sponsor under our ownership – and here’s a message from sponsor Nicholas Toovey.
“Toovey’s Fine Art & Antique Auctioneers & Valuers are proud to be the first ever sponsors of Picture Postcard Monthly.
“Our auctions feature a changing calendar of specialist fields such as paintings, coins, silver, toys and Asian art.
“However, we are passionate about quarterly sales of Paper Collectables that include postcards, stamps, cigarette cards and ephemera.
“The postcard community remains a close one, and we are pleased to be part of it. We already have a good and growing reputation among the trade and look reinforce this with the public too. By supporting the number one periodical for the postcard hobbyist we hope to establish Toovey’s as the number one choice for collectors.”
