I don't collect art postcards, coloring postcards, ad cards, free cards or homemade cards.

If you like to collect postcards come join the group: Postcard Hideout and if you like map postcards come join the group: Map Card Lovers

I'm also looking for foreign banknotes, foreign coins, US National Parks quarters and US State quarters. Pressed pennies, too. Willing to do private swaps for these. Let me know what you would like in exchange for them. If you collect come join the group: Coin Hideout

If you receive a letter from Canada & the stamps on the outside are unmarked, I would love them.

I also collect used worldwide stamps, coins, bank notes, playing card jokers, & my daughter is a collector of Ty beanie babies, pez dispensers, pokemon cards, california raisin figures, & McDonalds 101 dalmation figures, 102 dalmation figures, & 100 years of Disney figures.

My husband loves lawn tractor & tractor items such as posters, magazines, books, pins, John Deere collector cards, toys... anything tractors.

I am also a member of postcrossing.

I love all species of birds but my favorite is the owl.

Handmade return address labels made for me are always needed and welcome.

I use Canadian grocery coupons when shopping.

If you don't get my item and it says it's been sent please contact me! I have had items go missing in the mail, I will always send every swap I join. If you haven't received anything from me, let me know, I can send it again.

Hi Maxine

Thanks for angelling that swap. I love my dancer card. Thanks again

MissTullie on Nov 7, 2018:

Thanks so much for the CPG October wishes you sent me. I love the note cards and fun assortment of washi tape. You made my day special... I appreciate you thinking of me.

shirleyinCA on Nov 6, 2018:

Thanks so much for the RAK of used map postcards - my favorite is Route 66, which we drove several times from our home near Chicago to vacation in California, and finally drove it after high school graduation to move to CA. Fond memories! I also love the "Think Big" pc you sent me for my Swap Idea and of course the postage stamps are terrific and so useful. You're the best, Maxine!

Babytreese on Nov 4, 2018:

Hey Maxine! I got your fabulous package yesterday! "Map Card Lovers-RAK: Used Map Postcards" - They are more beautiful than the pics... thanks sooo much!

miyi on Nov 2, 2018:

Glad you received the RAK… was starting to wonder whether it got lost! I might have more small banknotes from other Asian countries once I clean up my drawers so maybe I'll contact you in future. :)

CHOWEFACE on Oct 24, 2018:

thanks for the used maps! I like reading the backs of them and I see one of them was from you sending to someone else.. How'd you end up getting that one back?! lol

Babytreese on Oct 23, 2018:

Thanks for letting me know you received the coins. Take care!

susieq11 on Oct 23, 2018:
