This arrived in great condition. It is just as pictured. Thank you for the postcard since I used to drive by the Troutdale Lodge in Evergreen Colorado before it was torn down.

My Life in Postcards...

Serendipity led me to postcards. Needing to make ends meet, a friend suggested more than a decade ago that I supplement my primary income with some postcard selling.

Little did either of us imagine how it would all grow into something much bigger - not only selling, but really becoming passionate about postcard collecting.

As many postcarders like to say, almost everything has appeared on a postcard. Almost - and that keeps us collecting, looking for that one more, one of a kind image that no one else has. That one last card that will complete a theme, topic category, or collection.

Of course, it never happens - there's always just one more out there - that one you just don't know about yet. The thrill of the hunt and the fulfillment that comes from the find gets your collecting day started one more time.

Have you got the bug yet? Go on, dabble a little - take a look around & see what you can find. It's all downhill from there - before you know it, you may have a collection on your hands...

    In love with trains since he was knee-high to a cow catcher, the Stationmaster first encountered postcards as a lad when on vacation. Later in life, having abandoned dreams of becoming a railroad engineer, he turned to postcard collecting & selling.
