This sounds so cool! I might drive up from East Tennessee - does the $5 need to be paid each day to get into the show?


The meetup is free. We will be meeting just outside the show. The show is $5 and is good for both days.

I look forward to meeting you,

Hi Demaris - I’m going to try to come on Saturday, but we have a wedding that afternoon, so it will be a quick visit!

Hi! I will try to be there!

Hi, my name is Cindy. My husband and I will be driving from Virginia Beach. This will be my first postcrossing meetup. I love hearing from people all over the world. I look forward to meeting some people and signing postcards. Take care.

Yay! Finally a meetup I can get to! Look forward to meeting fellow postcrossers! Any suggestions on where to get a name stamp? -Patty

I got mine at

I am new at this postcard signing . Why do people sign all the postcards I thought postcard signing was from One person to another? please confirm.

When we have postcrossing meetups, everyone gets a postcard or a few to sign. That way you have a little momentum of the meeting and everyone who is there. Some people collect signed post crossing postcards and it’s kind of fun to round robin the cards while everyone is signing them.
