Ephemera Society of America presents Ephemera Fair March 20

Mark your calendar for what will undoubtedly be the finest celebration of all things ephemera in North America this year.

The Ephemera Fair will be held at the Hyatt Regency Hotel in Old Greenwich, on Saturday, March 19, from 10-5 and Sunday, March 20, from 11-4. Ephemera are items made from paper that were not made to stand the test of time, and have since become collectible. Popular categories include correspondence, advertising materials, historical documents, posters, tickets, scores and scripts, cards, and many others.

The Ephemera Fair — the largest show of its type in the country — is worth a trip from anywhere, and is a family-friendly, exciting, and unique destination for browsing, shopping, and learning. And there will be some absolutely amazing items on display as well.

Can’t miss highlights include five pages of Braille pages typed by Helen Keller on a Braille typewriter; 100 pages of food themed sheet music from the 1900s; and an archive of materials, including a blood-stained suicide note, from pyramid-schemer Philip Musica, also known as F. Donald Coster. Coster, who could be compared to Bernie Madoff, is the man behind the 1938 McKesson & Robbins scandal. He stole $3 million (about $50 million in today’s dollars) from the drug company through forgeries, duplicate books, and massive fraud.
