About

I have loved vintage postcards. I have learned so much from every one of my cards. Now it's time to share them with you.

Being the owner of a large postcard collection for many years - I decided it was time to share some of my favorites. There isn't a category here that doesn't excite me but I think I am very partial to the Real Photo Post Cards (or RPPC) They really take you to another place and time. ]
The messages on the back can be so many things - descriptive, loving, shocking and sad - but they are all worth reading. I picture someone holding this very card in their hand with a long awaited message from a loved one. Remember - this was in a time when if you move to the other side of the country, or even another state, the chances are you weren't going to see your family again. Travel wasn't as easy as it is today and making your way was hard. I think it does us all good to think about how things used to be.

I hope you enjoy this shop. If you are interested in Art - I have two Etsy shops that sell my creations - StonewoodStudios - selling little rock and driftwood creations, and RugsInTheWoods - where I sell my hand woven rag rugs. See you there!!!
