I am thrilled to add this card to my collection. It feels like a CDV but the dimensions are narrower and longer (2″ x 5″), and best of all, it came with the original sleeve and envelope, something which is quite rare to find. And it doesn’t hurt that this is a looker!

    That really is a good find, I have an envelope that sets of J. Beagles cards came in but not any of mine, the seller at a collectors fair gave it to me because I bought about 70 Gabrielle Ray cards from her, now that was a good find 😃

      I love freebies! ;p In fact I got a picture for free recently because the seller misplaced it. She decided to send it to me free of charge weeks later. So yay!

      You bought 70 cards from her? She should throw in that freebie! You paid her bills for the month lol.

        It was a very good find, I meet her at another fair and she told me that she had bought a whole collection of Miss Ray’s cards and agreed to take them to the following fair for me, in the end she was the only seller I went to. That doesn’t happen very often although I have bought part of two other collections now.

        I need to go to one of those postcard fairs. I’m afraid I’d max out my credit cards LOL.

        It must be nice to have such a relationship with a seller to have pictures reserved for you! You get first dib!

        When it happens it’s nice, lol I usually taken cash with a cheque book as a back up, not to mention the credit cards lol. I’ve only used the cards once and that was in a theatre ephemera shop in London

        The Temptation To Spend is strong with this one. lol I don’t know what I would do. I know I spent a premium on some pictures because they were on eBay and not at a fair, at fair prices -pun.

        I find eBay a mixture, sometimes I’ve bought programmes very cheap, often because the starting price is low or even better because it’s been placed in the wrong section. Some cards do become a bidding war lol but equally some of the postcard fairs just have a fixed price, recently I saw a theatre advertisement for one of Miss Ray’s plays for £15 but I only paid £1 + postage. Often I’ve found some nice cards at car boot sales or the standard antiques and collectors fairs but it’s all down to luck.

        True about luck. In fact it’s all about how much the seller knows of the product they’re selling. I got all 6 Wearpledge postcards for $15 shipping included. They sell for about $9 each. The Biederer postcards I got for $50 but I think they would have gone for more if the name of the photographer had been listed. I didn’t know they were of him!
