My Postcard Collection & Postcards for Trade

About Me

I keep careful records of all swaps. If I do not receive from you , I will pm you. If you do not receive from me, please pm me. Also, please rate asap so that I know you received your swap. Thank you!


I love to travel and love to collect things from other countries.

My current collections - postcards, books (old encyclopedias are the current fave), tea (pu-erh), coke bottles, sewing machines (yes, I have 9), bookends with accordion players on them, goats,...I'm sure there's more but that's a good start.

Please don't send food, unless this is a food swap.

Also, I have my own religious beliefs, I keep them to myself, so please reciprocate.

Postcards

  • My "Favorites" on my postcard wall are just examples of what I like - you can send anything similar. Here are more ideas:
  • I prefer cards 4" x 6" (10.8cm x 15.2 cm) or smaller - bigger cards will not fit in my albums
  • my current collections - are in the link at the top
  • I like vintage cards.
  • I also don't mind used cards and ad cards if they fit into one of my collections!

PEOPLE (and animals):

  • I ♥ holiday postcards (Christmas with Santa, animals, snowmen, or elves or Easter with bunnies) - and especially POISSON D'AVRIL!
  • cartoon characters like Moomin, Diddl, KRTEK, Barbapapa, Rumcajs, Mecki & Macki, Smurf, gnomes, etc
  • illustrators like Rebecca Dautremer, Inge Look, Erik Forsman, Maurice Sendak, Racey Helps, Lisi Martin, etc.
  • people in traditional costumes (especially women & girls)
  • hedgehogs, bunnies, goats, chimpanzees, camels, seahorses
  • lovebirds (the parrots), toucans, ostriches, cassowary, roosters
  • Mecki & Macki
  • Kewpie
  • chimney sweeps
  • Nasreddin Hodja
  • cute gnomes, dwarves, nisse, to tell
  • curling (the sport)

PLACES:

  • Eiffel Tower
  • old Seattle (1982 or earlier, or something that no longer exists)
  • Venice gondolas
  • MAP CARDS
    • subway maps
    • fictional maps or cartoon maps :)
  • Big Letter cards

THINGS:

  • funky carts & wagons
  • mailboxes & post related
  • clocks
  • funny houses
  • volcanoes
  • sewing machines & people knitting, sewing, crafting, etc.
  • skulls
  • mushrooms, carnivorous plants
  • citrus fruits - oranges, lemons, etc.
  • alphabets
  • cut-out cards that make into things
  • accordions, violins and pianos
