Suggestion. Postcard Sales

Recommended Posts

The collecting of old postcards particularly topographical has become a major hobby.

 

I find that the postcard listings on Bid or Buy are inadequate.

 

Postcards are currently hidden under, Antiques and Collectibles then Stationery and Writing Equipment and finally Postcards.

 

Ebay has a separate Postcard listing that follows the categories in the Picture Postcard Values publication.

 

I am not suggesting that Bid or Buy needs to follow Ebay but Postcards without overdoing it do deserve their own category.

 

I would suggest:

 

Postcards

 

Southern Africa

Johannesburg & Transvaal

Durban& Natal

Cape Town & WC

Port Elizabeth & EC

Bloemfontein & FS etc. You get the jist.

Rhodesia

 

Overseas

 

Europe

Britain

 

Transport

 

Road

Aviation

Shipping

Rail

 

Military

 

Sport

 

Comic

 

Art

Hello cg

 

You will also find postcards under stamps. The seller babadaud usually lists a fine selection.

 

Keep well and regards

Morning Jacques,

 

I held off listing for months because of the B/B postcard category but have now put my toe in the water.

 

As with the seller that you mentioned I have also split listings between stamps and postcards.

 

I guess that the trick is to become noticed and hope that collectors click on your name because the B/B search is all over the place.

 

Thanks for your feedback.

 

Regards

Chris

Apart from Topographical there is Ephemera

Old newspaoers

Letters signed by well known people

Receipts with stamps

Share certificates with stamps (Often Revenue)

Programmes which do not fall under sport

Old Christmas, birthday cards etc

Victorian scraps--All this paper paraphenalia that falls under Ephemera.

 

Vintage clothing is hidden in the clothing category under "Womens clothing"

should be under textiles at least.
