Welcome to our new Barr’s Post Card News & Ephemera format! Due to the ongoing pandemic and Covid 19 restrictions a great many paper shows, sales and auctions have been cancelled, which necessitated a change in our publication. Looking forward to when social restrictions ease up, I’m sure there will be a new style of attending shows and sales. I’m praying for a vaccine for this virus that has impacted every facet of our lives for the past four months.

We will continue to bring our readers up-to-the-minute news in the paper, postcard and ephemera realms as well as interesting and informative articles on the same subjects.

Have a wonderful couple of weeks. I hope everyone had an exciting Fourth of July! Please contact us with club and convention news; unusual postcard or paper collections; as well as other related matters at;; or via telephone at (319) 472-4763.
