It's not often (or ever) that we buy a postcard of our hometown, so that's what we'll do here! Go to your local card shop, gas station, souvenier place, etc. and buy 2 postcards that represent your hometown (you'll have 2 swap partners).

This swap in international and open to everyone! So, get to it--show off your hometown! (and please don't flake out on us!)

I can't find any postcards of my hometown. Can I make my own from photos taken around my hometown? Barbara

jlynch73 11/ 5/2008 #

Hi Barbara--if you can't find one of your hometown, try and get one of your region or your state (eg. New England, Tennessee, The Rockies, etc.) I'd like to keep this one store-bought. Have fun!

are these to be sent through the mail or sent via envelope?

jlynch73 11/ 7/2008 #

Good question--these are to be written on, stamped, and sent through the mail...

I think this is a nice swap for me to start with! i love sending en receiving postcards from all over the world!

Usually post cards only have a picture and the city name. Do we need to write something about where we live or just a friendly not to our partner? Thanks, Brandy

jlynch73 11/12/2008 #

Hi Brandy--You can write anything you want on your postcard--it doesn't necessarily have to relate to where you live. Just a few lines for a nice greeting...

this is my first swap and i'm a little confused... are we supposed to send our pc's BY nov. 18th and have them arrive shortly there after, or are they supposed to GET them by the 18th? thanks!

pooky11 11/13/2008 #

Hi SewManyLittleThings: We are supposed to have our postcards in the mail by 11/18. It should only take a couple of days to for the postcards to arrive at their destination.

SewManyLittleThings 11/15/2008 #

I forgot to put my username on my post cards that I sent out. Sorry this was my first swap! Brandy Perkins = Pooky11

I received from Ceinwyn. I loved your post card. My husband and I have a treasure basket of what he has found at job sites and what we have found in Gettysburg and that's where we are displaying the post card.

marilavado: I just wanted to let you know....that your post card was returned to me today. I tried to send it with a delivery confirmation because I do not trust the US Postal System(it really stinks). I will resend tomorrow. Sorry for the inconvenience. -Brandy
