Members from all over the world attend the Wichita International Postcard Club Show each 3rd weekend in October. 


   
Imagine a building with hundreds of thousands of postcards! That's what we have every October here in Wichita, Kansas!
32+ dealers set up tables filled with boxes full of postcards all categorized and ready for you to search for that perfect addition to your
collection.

Not a postcard collector? You may become one if you try our show! They also make great gifts! Wouldn't Grandma love to have a
postcard of her home town or the hospital where you were born?

                     History abounds in postcards - everything from political to aviation to geographical to ......

You may not know where to start! Think about what you're interested in - music, animals, sports, your favorite vacation spot, the hospital 
where you were born, presidents , World Fairs, cowboys - it could literally be anything and I would bet one of the dealers can come up
with something related to your interest! 
There are modern (rack)cards as well as cards close to 100 years old. Dealers are friendly and
anxious to help you!

The 36th Wichita International Postcard Show will be held on October 18, 19, and 20, 2013 in All Saint's Gym, 3313 Grand, Wichita,
Kansas (across the street from St Joseph's Hospital) - just north and east of Hillside and Harry in southeast Wichita. Friday night is for
members only (a good reason to join!) at 6:30, with open availability to the general public on Saturday 9-5 and Sunday 10-4.  

The show theme for 2013 will be Pioneers & Settlers.  Display boards will feature postcards relating to to the show theme as well as linens,
advertising, people, signed artists, transportation, state views, political, novelty, topicals and miscellaneous.  Sunday includes a Postcard
Seminar at 8:30 am in a new more convenient area right across the street from the hall with no steps. Speaker will be Cynthia Rubin.

                                     There is FREE admission, FREE parking, exhibits, and hundreds of thousands of postcards!

  Accommodations
Many of the dealers that set up at our show stay at the
Wichita Inn
located at 8220 East Kellogg in Wichita. Their
toll free phone # is
1-888-685-8291.  Local # is 685-8291.  

Due to the Kellogg project, the Williamsburg Inn has been
demolished.  
The Wichita Inn however has been updated.

Of course Wichita has MANY other motels including most
of the major
chains and many smaller ones as well. Feel
free to contact us and we
would be happy to help you out
in finding accommodations.
  Food
Many of the restaurants that were available near the
Wichita Inn previously have been demolished due to
the Kellogg expansion project.  However there are
numerous restaurants on Rock Road north and south
of Kellogg.  At the show itself, you can't beat the food
served by the Knights of Columbus (9767). Their burgers
and chili are great! Their pie is especially popular
so be sure to get your piece(s)!

There are several fast food restaurants close to the show
if you want to take a quick break.
