The Metropolitan Postcard Show In NYC May 17-19th 2013

We happened to be in New York City this past weekend for a business trade show. It was perfect timing, as the Metro New York Club was holding their Spring International postcard show at the New Yorker Hotel In NYC at the same time! 

The show covered three ballroom-sized rooms. The dealers had plenty of room to spread out. I only knew a handful of dealers, as there were many International dealers that flew in for the show. 

I assortment of dealers was vast, but I only found a handful of cards for my collection. It seems that the material was heavy on International cards, high end artist signed etc, and light on local views. 

I spoke with many dealers and they said sales were a bit light as compared to other years. I was still happy to have attended, met some old friends and made some new ones!
