The Vintage Paper Fair returns to San Francisco this weekend, and if you’ve never been, let me fill you in on what you can expect: boxes and boxes and boxes filled with vintage postcards, greeting cards, advertisements, posters, and photographs. It’s like a museum of pieces of nostalgia, glimpses of history, remnants of days long gone. The vendors are proud of their collections and will gladly share their knowledge with you.
The Vintage Paper Fair will be held in the Hall of Flowers in Golden Gate Park, just inside the 9th Avenue entrance at Lincoln Blvd. The fair runs Sat, Jan 8 from 10am to 6pm and Sun, Jan 9 from 10am to 4pm. Admission is free.
