The Vintage Postcard Shop


About The Vintage Postcard Shop

Important notice this postcard shop is closed with immediate effect. However, i am still very interested in purchasing good quality postcard collections, so please make contact if you have postcards for sale.


 Sunnytown Postcards and Collectables have been trading since 1992.


I can be found on the internet by using the search term of vintage postcards, Sunnytown Postcards,  Sunnytown Collectors Shop, Chris Saltmarsh Postcards, Essex Postcard Shop or vintage postcard shop, Essex Coin Shop, Essex Banknote Shop.



I buy and sell a wide range of genuine Old collectables. I specialize in old picture postcards, I have a large range of British County topographical postcards especially strong in Essex, Sussex, Kent, London suburbs and the home counties but I also have a good representation of subjects, themes and foreign postcards from 1890 to 1960. 


 I also stock ephemera, advertising collectables, old tins, tinplate and die-cast toys, militaria medals, badges, coins, banknotes, crested china, childrens annuals, small antiques, carte de visite, CDVs Victorian Cabinet photographs and a whole lot more.  


Chris buys old collectables


I have always been more interested in buying than selling, as it is my belief that this sort of business can only be successful if my stock is constantly changing.  


 I have hundreds of customers waiting for choice collectables, so if you have items for sale that are good quality and good condition, please get in touch. You can be assured of an excellent cash offer.
