The Sunshine Post Card Club will host 20 dealers will be buying and selling collectible and antique postcards. Browse souvenirs that evoke a nostalgia for days gone by with pictures of cities before they were overdeveloped, old bridges and old buildings that have been torn down. Some are black-and-white and some are tinted with saturated colors, delighting us with vivid flora and fauna, pictorial fonts and corny slogans. The cards also provide a glimpse of tourism back in the day with old theme parks like Weeki Wachee in their golden days and attractions that are no more — paradise paved over by a parking lot. Come to think of it, one has to wonder if Joni Mitchell was singing about Tiki Gardens in Indian Rocks Beach. —Julie Garisto
