'Catawiki reaches exactly the right target audience I'm looking for. This is extremely beneficial for me. I started out small, but now I can live from the sales I make on Catawiki.'
Seller: Anything Else
'Spanish art is appreciated much more than we thought it would be abroad. We really had no idea about the international market until we joined Catawiki.'
Seller: El Testamento de Baron
The global stage that Catawiki provides is extremely attractive as it cuts out the astronomical costs associated with traditional auction houses and art galleries and helps me promote and sell my work on a large scale.'

About Catawiki's Postcard auction

One of the earliest known postcards was hand-printed and sent in 1840 to the playwright and novelist, Theodore Hook in Fulham, London. The card is believed to have been sent by Hook, to himself, as a practical joke and mockery of the English postal system; the card sold for £31,750 in 2002. Since then, postcards have been sent in all shapes and sizes and for a variety of reasons. Despite seeming quite ordinary, postcards have the potential to offer a rare glimpse into the past lives of their senders and recipients. Whether it is a soldier in the trenches of WW1 writing a poignant postcard to his loved ones or a student travelling the world, writing a card home to say “Wish you were here!” - the variety and personal nature of postcards help to make them a collectable item.

Catawiki’s postcard auctions feature a diverse range of postcards. Whether you have cards containing images of historic buildings, people, natural beauty or political cartoons, Catawiki’s postcard auctions are the ideal place to sell your postcards. Listing your special objects on Catawiki will provide them with excellent online exposure to millions of potential bidders. Our notary officials are working to ensure the validity of bids placed, while our expert auctioneers supervise our auctions. Once the bidding has finished, our secure payment system ensures both buyers and sellers are satisfied with the transaction.

With thousands of lots each week and hundreds of categories, Catawiki is the ideal place to sell your special object - start selling today!
