CDVs
« on: July 29, 2009, 05:28:17 AM »
I didn't know where to post this, so my apologies if this is the wrong place.
I was just curious to know if some of you are interested in the history of photography and especially in collection cartes-de-visite (CDV), cabinet cards, etc.
I love them and collect them and I'd like to know more places than EBay where they can be purchased. Maybe anyone of you has a link, address or whatever? Thank you in advance.  :)

What a wonderful shop! They have beautiful things there. I love antiques and I'll definitely have to check their shop. Thanks so much for the link, Katenka.

We don't often have local fleamarkets here, so there's no such opportunity to get them there. But I'm looking around for bigger ones in my area.

I go to the local district markets and there is a stall that sells photographs.  I have a few from Edwardian times (one really nice one with a beautiful teenager) and one from the 30s/40s of this guy walking down the street looking startled because some random photograph came up to him and took his picture.  He looks both startled and not impressed lol.
Beautiful faithful Nargony.
Thanks Emily!

I have found one site in my country called Retro Bulgaria...but it's most with postcards pictures how Bulgaria look in the Centuries and such... but they can't be bought because the girl collected them from archives and such and even marked most of them...you are giving me good idea to look for shop....
