Postcard Collections

As you may know, if you've followed my blog for very long, I have a collection of vintage postcards..mainly Valentines but also a few other holidays.....I love old graphics and such.......thought I'd post some of these Thanksgiving ones again...you can use these on your blog or in making cards, etc...public domain entirely.......

For quite a while I collected postcards of my husbands hometown, Independence, Iowa...bought them on Ebay and I am finding that the cards are getting rare and cost big bucks now..cards I bought for 3 or 4 dollars are now listed at $25-30 each! So postcard collecting can be a profitable hobby and an enjoyable one...it doesn't take as much room either as other collectibles. A few albums on a bookshelf is alot better than crowded shelves of knick knacks...

Another one of my friends, Judy of Judy's Postcards Plus
has an interesting blog and she sells postcards. It would be a good way to start an enjoyable hobby and also is good for young collectors. If I had a grandchild, I think I'd get them started, depending on their interests....our youngest has a large collection of baseball cards but they are not as popular right now...I advised him to hang onto them for the future.
