Iowa City Postcard/Stamp/Paper Show Planned For April 9 And 10

16th Annual Event To Be Held At Johnson County 4-H Fairgrounds

February 19, 2021

Herb and Mary Staub are happy to announce the Iowa City Postcard/Stamp/Paper Show will be held at the Johnson County 4-H Fairgrounds at 4261 Oak Crest Hill Road NE, Iowa City, Iowa, on Friday and Saturday, April 9 and 10. The fairgrounds are located a quarter mile east of the airport exit off U.S. 218, south of the I-80/I-380 interchange.
Iowa's Premier Postcard Show is marking its 16th year. Hours will be from noon to 6 p.m. on day one and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on day two. Due to Covid-19 restrictions, the 15th annual show in 2020 was cancelled. This year, precautions and protocols will be used. Several new dealers will be exhibiting. Among returning dealers are Kevin Lunn of Jewell, Iowa, selling U.S. and foreign stamps and coins. The show promoters expect 10 to 12 dealers with 50 to 60 tables of postcards/photos/stamps/paper goods and other collectibles.
The 2019 Iowa City Show had 16 dealers set up with over 60 tables. In addition to the regional customers that have become a standard, there are buyers from other parts of the country who attend this event. Ralph Bowman of The Paper Gallery, Valley Center, Calif.; Allen Cottrell of Crows Nest Postcards in Boise, Idaho; and Susan Brown Nickolson of Chicago, Ill., are regulars.
This show has free admission, and parking is free. Many of the dealers do not exhibit at any other show. The building is handicapped accessible and well lit.
