Your Hometown Postcard Swap

Swap categories: Newbie  Postcards 
Number of people in swap:100
Last day to signup/drop:January 13, 2009

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). If you can't find a postcard of your hometown, you can send one that represents your state or region.

This swap in international and open to everyone! So, get to it--show off your hometown!

My town is so small, there is actually only one gift shop to get postcards from here, and they are all for the state of NC, I haven't found any for my town. Would that be ok?

jlynch73 01/ 6/2009 #

Sure -- if you can't get one for your hometown, get one for your state or region (eg. North Carolina, The Rocky Mountains, New England, etc.)...

You've mentioned two partners, but you've marked it down as only one swap partner. I'm still joining the swap anyway, just thought I'd mention it.

jlynch73 01/ 6/2009 #

Oops -- I went ahead and corrected that. Thanks!

Must the postcards sent naked or in an envelope ?

jlynch73 01/11/2009 #

Please send them without an envelope (naked) -- thanks!

okay.....maybe I'm having a brain freeze! (It's cold enough here in Ontario!) LOL Does this mean that we send two cards to each of two people or one card to 2 people?

jlynch73 01/13/2009 #

You will be buying 2 postcards total and sending one to each of your partners...

I wanted to know if I could send a Stature of Liberty postcard?

jlynch73 01/13/2009 #

Sure -- a Statue of Liberty postcard would be a good one to represent NYC...
