San Francisco Vintage Paper Fair

Kelly & I both enjoy scrapbooking and paper, so we went to the San Francisco Fair Grounds to check out the Vintage Paper Fair on a Sunday afternoon.
 We spent hours looking through all kinds of sheet music, playing cards, postcards, and checks. It was really fun to see vintage bottle caps, marbles, and other collectibles too.
Postcards were organized by category and location. I was amused that one of the booths had drawings on the dividers. The "Indian" divider had a drawing of an arrow. It makes perfect sense that the "gun" divider had a drawing that looked like a hair dryer. 
The paper fair attracted a wide variety of people. It was fun to see all the different booths and the collectors that ran them.
We had a great time looking through old ephemera and I look forward to May when the paper fair returns to San Francisco.
