More Postcard Show...



 


 

                                          The postcard show was a first for me. I've always wanted to go but, for some reason or another you know, it never happened. Well, there were serious Collectors here. What I didn't know and was about to learn. There is postcard etiquette. Oops!! No wonder why the elderly lady that I was sharing her box of cards with, moved her chair closer to her Daughter. I said, " I hope you don't mind that  we  share?"  Hesitantly, she replied " Yes. " I share I thought. I work with preschoolers. I didn't dare tell her that. The Woman's Daughter said, " My Mom doesn't even share with me." Wow!
                                         To make a long story short. A Gentleman at the last booth gave me some information. So long there is no marker in a box with a person close by, it's up for grabs. Who new? Yikes!!  No wonder, I got a dirty look in booth # 2. Hands off the Merchandise!!  Sorry!!  Ha, Ha. I didn't mean it. I guess there are rules for everything. Even at postcard shows. I had a blast. Hopefully, I'll be back again next year.
                        
    
                                                           Have a wonderful week.

I never knew that rule. I guess I'm lucky they never kicked me out of the antique shows then. Come to think of it a guy gave me dirty looks last month and I do think I was pawing in the same box he was looking at. The cat postcards are absolutely adorable. And I just got the CATS kill joke! Cute.

I am loving all those kitty postcards. I wouldn't of known about the post card etiquette either.

I've never been to a postcard show so I would have been making a mess of the rules all over the place! I love Shirley's comment! :-)
