To be honest, I was quite disappointed. I was hoping to send this card to a friend as a nice vintage greeting for her birthday because she loves Lily of the Valley. What I received was more of an collector's item - it had been written on already, so seemed to be meant for somebody who collects used postcards and not for someone who wanted to send it themselves. This should have been made clearer in the description. Additionally, it was covered in sand - was this supposed to be funny or relate to the accompanying card of 'White Sands'? Not sure. Anyway, I'm not trying this seller again, sorry.

I am equally disappointed in your review. The description and the pictures clearly show the item and you can see in the photograph of the backside of the card there is writing. You are correct that this is for collectors. Also the White Sands card was a gift, however unappreciated it was. I also would like to point out that the "sand" you claim was all over the card was in fact part of the original design of this early period postcard. The would use small glass beads to accentuate the image and give it texture the same reason they use ribbon. All of this fine card was from the original design and period with nothing added.
