Have a postcard in your stash that you'd never send out to anyone else in a million, billion years? (I know I have several, thanks to the "$2.49 for 50 postcards" grab bag special from the local hardware store!) Well, here's your chance to get rid of it!

Cards should be store-bought (or at least commercially printed - online cards are fine, too) and sent naked (written on and stamped) ... we don't want someone else to have to figure out how to pass the hideous thing on! :-)

Newbies welcome ... but no flaking, pretty please! Happy swapping!

Oh this is a really fun idea :) I'll have to go through my stash!

It will be great if we actually like the postcards we recieve! :P

I was going to say... I'm rather fond of that horribly kitsch picture that accompanies the swap!

Are we allowed to send promotional cards? EG - my local cinema has movie and other related post cards. Some of them are pretty weird!

@theanswerisseven -taking the liberty of answering for the coordinator. The swap instructions say the card must be store-bought). This suggests it can't be promotional (or ad) cards.

@theanswerisseven - I can't decide if I love or hate the card I chose for the swap image. It's so bad and yet ... it ... it has a certain appeal!

I'm thinking no ad or promotional cards this time. :-( I do like them, but since it has said store-bought since I put the swap up, it probably wouldn't be a good idea to change it now. But perhaps for the next swap ... I have a bunch of bad cards to get rid of! :-)
