Collecting: Vintage Postcards

 

I am slowly working on a collection of vintage post cards. They are pretty reminders of the past as well being more functional than you think. I use them to decorate spaces but also as bookmarks, and I want to create a custom notepad out of the blank cards. I would really like to eventually collect some with messages on them, kind of like old written letters but better because they also have timeless images printed on the other side. I find I like ones with gorgeous old photographs or vintage fashion prints, and the colors I love are always pretty pale and faded. I found these two at a vintage show for a dollar each. Most flea markets have giant bins full of lost images and postcards for new people to find. Keep collecting, even if vintage postcards aren’t your thing. I’ll keep adding pictures to this page if I find any that I just need to share.
