Description:

This one, unless you already have some, will mean going into an antique store and checking for old, old postcards. You can send anykind and they can have something written on them or not. You will send one post card to each swapper (2) in an envie if already written on or write your name and swap on one and send it as a postcard (naked). It is up to sender. I have seen them cost anywhere from $1.00 up, the cost is up to you too. I lucked out and found 4 of them at .50 a piece on sale. They are really neat in the US with a 1 cent stamp on them and things people write on them. Interesting collection. Newbies are welcome but will check profile to see if filled out enough. This is a low cost swap. International from the USA is .98 less if in the USA or Canda. I would love to have an old one from overseas. I will ban anyone that I feel is not a very good swapper and I will if asked angel this., Thanks.

Cool! I just hit the motherlode of vintage postcards the other day! I bought a few, but I am quite fond of them, so I will run back to purchase some more! They probably had THOUSANDS! (and, darn it, this place is 2 miles from my house and in 8 years I had never been there!!!!!!!)

Glad I got you interested enough to check out that shop.

Hi, how old do the postcards have to be? I found some which are from 1967. Will those do?

The description says 2 partners but it's set up for only one, just FYI. I'm in either way! :OD

ooh yay, I love vintage postcards! Especially reading the stuff people wrote on them years ago.

As @Aria asked above - can you define 'quite old' please?!

ladydy5 08/18/2011 #

I mean the ones that you find in antique shops that may be turning beige looking and have one cent stamps on some of them. Pictures on them that you can tell you did not get at Walmart. It is only one person.

I will get mine out by the deadline, but since returning from vacation we've been passing the stomach flu around and I've been planning a surprise party for my husbands birthday tomorrow so I've been seriously struggling finding time to do much of anything else! LOL! I promise it'll make the deadline! :-)
