DOVER, DE — The DelMarVa Postcard Club is presenting a postcard and local history show in Dover on September 13, 2014.
Dealers in postcards and Delmarva Peninsula local history (books, ephemera and photos) will be exhibiting at the United Methodist Church of Wyoming, located at 216 Wyoming Mill Road in Dover on Saturday, September 13. Show and sale hours are 10 a.m. to 4 p.m., and free door prize drawings will be held every hour.
Show coordinators Gary Spengler of Frederica and Bill Burton of Dover noted that well-known postcard dealers such as Mary L. Martin of Havre de Grace, MD, Collectors’ Rowe of Kennett Square, PA and Lee Dixon of Marydel, DE will be among the dealers exhibiting.
“Collectors of Delmarva Peninsula postcards and local history will find a wide variety of items of interest to them,” said Spengler, who has been a postcard and antiques dealer for more than 10 years. “The history of our communities here is fascinating and this is an opportunity to find and own a piece of it.”
“The show has traditionally been held during the winter in Salisbury, Maryland,” noted Burton, a collector of local history and postcards for 20-plus years. “By shifting the date to the fall and relocating the show closer to the larger population centers of Wilmington, Washington, Baltimore and Philadelphia has been met with a lot of enthusiasm from collectors and dealers alike.”
