Some of you have asked why a person would collect, or how they would use used postcards.

To me, a used postcard is just as valuable, and sometimes more valuable than a brand new card. I collect both new and used cards in the categories I am interested in.

They can also be used for any number of paper crafting projects. Personally,

I love the antique postcards. Sometimes the messages on them are so interesting! One time I found a set of antique bird postcards where a man and a woman were courting (in the early 1900's) and it was fascinating! I wonder if those two ever got married!

To participate in this swap you must have completed at least 30 type 2/3 swaps and have no 1 or 3 ratings in the past 12 months. No exceptions. I will check profiles before assigning partners!

This swap is for used postcards. A used postcard is one that is addressed to someone and has a postage stamp on it. The cards can be any size/shape, from any era.

Used postcards must be in EXCELLENT condition. This means no bends, tears, stains, only minor corner wear. Send cards that you would like to receive. No AD cards or handmade cards.

You will have one partner and will send them 4 used postcards,

I have lots of great cards for my partner!!!

Thank you for this swap!

Just a quick question. Is this a swap for written & stamped cards only? Because I have cards that are written on the back but not mailed. Are they allowed to this swap?

Irina - yes, it is for written and stamped, only. They must have postage on the back of them.
