POSTCARDS FOR SALE
 
 
THIS IS NOW A LARGE SITE WITH OVER 900 PAGES OF CARDS (& WE STILL HAVE MANY 1000's OF CARDS TO ADD)
 
Please note that this site is mainly for pre-1960 cards. I also have 50,000 post 1960 cards - please mention whether you want moderns when asking for your area or ask for me to send card numbers if you collect publishers, or for scans.
Most of my subject and overseas cards are on Delcampe under my userid of Surfinia2, as are all my topo art cards by Quinton + Tuck oilettes + other oddments
 
How to use this site
On the left are the UK counties (Indexes for Wales and Scotland can be found on those pages). Cards are shown by place name A-Z but where I have many cards of one place, there will be a link to a separate page. This will pop up as a new window. When you have finished browsing that page (or pages), close the window to return to the County page.
Alternatively, the Site Map is the quickest way to go to any single page. It's not laid out as I would like but it IS self updating.
The top tabs on the left are for my Topographical Art Card lists. Please ignore the Member login at the bottom - I can't seem to get rid of it.
If you want to order from us or check availability, please do so through the Contact Us page. I can't do Shopping carts so the best idea is to copy and paste numbers and titles (please add the Town name if the card is on a Town/City page) into Notepad, and then paste it in the Contact Us page.
We do try to mark sold cards as sold but sometimes get behind.
 
 If you can't see what you're looking for, please e-mail me - they are not all here by a long way. You can either e-mail me via the Contact Us page or at sjones@sjones41.freeserve.co.uk
The links on the left relate to each County page. As the county boundaries keep changing its difficult to locate cards where everyone can find them. The Bartholomews I use is 20 years old so it doesn't include Counties such as Hunts, Rutland etc, but does include Avon, Cleveland, Tyne & Wear, West Midlands. I have included these - but not Humberside, which no one seemed to like - see under Yorks and Lincs.
 
I live in Lancashire, England.
I can accept payment for any cards by Paypal or by UK cheque (please do not send cash - it gets 'lost' in the post). I do not have facilities for credit cards (other than through Paypal, which seems to take about 8-10 days)
For postal details and charges please refer to the Contact Us page.
 
On each page are a set of images. For each image I have shown:
The exact caption
RP = real photo types, others are printed
The Publisher - where known
Dates are dates of postal usage (when used) or a reasoned estimate
The Condition - all faults described
Price
The images are deliberately low resolution for two reasons:
   a) to be able to fit more on the site
   b) to prevent image theft
 
LATEST ADDITIONS
 
 I'm  updating the pages with new cards, in a larger format, as I go along. I have now recovered,  and in some cases, added lots of new cards, to nearly all counties  There may be an odd missing image from some counties. I now have about 18,000 cards shown and another 7,000 topo art cards listed.

                coming months
                    
Please buy with confidence - if you're unhappy and think the card has faults not described then I do offer a full refund. I describe any faults, however minor.
