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!


name for image


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: 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!
