This Weekend: Hal Lutsky’s Vintage Paper Fair

Are you interested in the history of paper? There may or may not be an app for that, but there is a fair for it: Hal Lutsky’s Vintage Paper Fair, which takes place Jan. 16-17 as well as April 23-24 and Aug. 6-7. It’s billed as “Northern California’s finest selection of postcards, trade cards, stereoviews, photography, labels, brochures, Victorian, transportation and sports memorabilia and all manner of curious, beautiful and interesting old paper.”

 

The event, which takes place at Golden Gate Park near the Hall of Flowers at Ninth Avenue and Lincoln Way, runs from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Sundays. Free admission is offered on both days.

 

Dealers include promoter Hal Lutsky of San Francisco, John Boring of El Granada, Ron De Bijil of Holland, Mike Fairley of Seattle and Mary Martin of Perryville, Md.

 

If you’re not interested in driving (and that may be a good idea), here’s the best means of public transportation to the fair: take the N-Judah MUNI streetcar line to Ninth Avenue and Irving Street. Walk one block and you’ll enter the park. The Hall of Flowers is on the corner. Enjoy!322403_03
