New York City Postcard Show March, 2012

It's time once again for the The New York City Postcard Show  March 9, 10 and 11th at the New Yorker Hotel, 34th Street & 8th Avenue. Last day of the show is optional for dealers, so it may be best to attend on the 9th or 10th. I will be there all three days. Note that this is a change from the show dates, usually scheduled in May. The show after this one will be in November.

I will also have a stand at the New York Photo Show, a one day fair, March 31st  at the Lighthouse on 59th Street. The show will overlap with the final day of the annual AIPAD Show which is nine blocks to the north at the 68th Street Armory. This an excellent, expanding show, which is sure to become a "must visit" destination during the New York City Photo Week activities and not to be missed! Details are here.
