About Me

I LOVE POSTCARDS. I am very fond of cool postage stamps. I also like nice writing utensils. Walking into a stationery shop will often increase my heart rate. Fave colour is turquoise. Silver is pretty nice, too.

Other things I enjoy: travel, books, writing, stationery, fun office supplies, road trips, photos, letters, museums, street art, funny/friendly/creative people, open highways, mail art, salty chocolate, beaches, forests, trivia, free parking spots, fonts & lettering, my neighbourhood, train tracks & trestles, tiny houses, funny signs, hand-painted signs, movies, flannel sheets, pens that write smoothly, zines, really old mason jars, Quantity/Inkognito/NouvellesImages/Tushita/Fotofolio/Catch/Bizarr postcards, washi tape, and loads of other things.

I really like cats.

I'm pretty sure I've got a paper fetish.

Tea: Fave is Earl Grey. I enjoy most teas except for Chamomile/Roiboos.


Will trade you some amazing mac + cheese for some blank BANKSY postcards. The only ones I've been able to find are the Banksy vs. Bristol Museum Official Postcard Set. Update: I now have one from Fotofolio, and thanks to a generous swapper - another of the Junk Food Caveman!

Update (12-May-2015): I have amassed quite a few more Banksy PCs, thanks to some generous and thoughtful swappers! I'm still collecting them, so if you would like to trade - please send me a message. Thank you!

I'm looking for postcards that show the interior or exterior of theaters, grand opera houses, or cinemas.

I love images of abandoned movie theaters, but am skeptical such postcards exist. I like all kinds of abandoned buildings; they tell so many stories.

Cards I collect (in no particular order):

  • Vintage/Historical/Retro PCs
  • B&W photography
  • Travel/Highways/Hotels/Motels/Diners
  • Pulp Fiction book cover art
  • Pop Culture
  • Strange/Unusual/Goofy/WEIRD
  • Street Art/Graffiti/Urban
  • Landmarks/Buildings/Prisons/Museums
  • Art/Design/Architecture/Sculpture
  • Illustrations
  • Buddha
  • Scenic Views/Deserts/Southwest
  • Mail Themes: Airmail/Stamps/Mailboxes/etc.
  • Libraries/Books/Newspapers
  • Planes/Trains/Automobiles
  • Maps
  • Anthropomorphic
  • Sasquatch/Bigfoot/Yeti :)
  • Funny state/touristy cards
  • Cities: Vancouver, Hong Kong, Seattle, Portland, New Orleans, Baltimore, San Francisco, New York.
  • Animals: any kind of CAT, foxes, squirrels, pigeons, donkeys, octopus, LIONS, anything.

Preferences & Exceptions

I'm not a huge fan of younger kid-type cards, Disney, etc., but I understand that some people like them and that's cool.

I DO like graphic novel type art/comics/etc.

Suggestive postcards are fine. I'm over 21, and then some! Nothing degrading or realistically violent, thanks.

Handmade postcards: I like these, and have been the lucky recipient of some really amazing ones. I've also gotten rectangular-shaped pieces of scrapbook paper with little more than a stamp on them, as well as greeting/note cards cut poorly in half. I'd prefer to not receive the latter types.

If you enjoy taking photographs and turning them into postcards - I always appreciate seeing these.





Comment: Thanks for the great postcards, I love them all.The sticker “ nobody knows I’m Elvis” is so funny, I thought he had left the building😉 Thanks also for the nice notecard. Wishing you also the best for 2019. Lots of love from me and the crazy cat😺😻😺

Comment: Such a bright, happy envelope! Then all very amazing postcards that so perfectly match my profile! Thank you so much for taking the time to read about me and then choose lovely cards. Wow, watercolor cards of lilacs - c'est magnifique! How I love the photo of the little lad in Mickey Mouse ears at Forest Lawn Cemetery- his face and body language sure tell you he knows he is not at the happiest place on earth! I taught elementary, usually a 2nd/3rd combo class so I could have kids 2 years in a row. Then I moved on to do teacher training for our county dept. of education. My husband taught h.s. biology. I remember my h.s. and college French well enough that I passed the language test and now help French speaking guests at Disneyland. If I give a tour in French, I get a headache for the first few hours until my brain can stop translating and start thinking in French! Congrats on your teaching degree! Oh --delightful lemonade note card also! Thanks again for one of the best swaps I've received in a long time.
Response: Hi Shirley! I'm really happy you enjoyed the swap. Your French must be really good if you can give tours in it - and I definitely can relate to the headache lol.

Comment: So many and so wonderful. Thank you with extra hearts. Saganaki is a favorite of mine. I like it with a squeeze of lemon. Things are off here. Instead of umbrellas people are asking for sunscreen. We have warm weather and no rain. A friend from Poland said its 30c. Here it 19c. Crazy. I hope you make it here.

Thank you for a nice surprise--the wonderful hand-made envelope, and the long, conjoined-postcard note! Yes, there was a little postcard store in North Beach, apparently long-gone now--but we are talking about the first half of the 90's, here!
