Third Place Postcard

If you recall yesterday’s post I showed 2 new postcards which were tied for 1st place in my purchases at the Vintage Postcard Fair in Kent.  Well here’s my 3rd favorite card among those purchased.

Postcard Day

It was a day for going through boxes and boxes of postcards at the meeting of the Postcard Collectors Club.  I found some nice cards to add to my collection.

For example – isn’t he a cutie?

Postcard Sunday Is Near

The first Sunday of each month a meeting of the Pacific Northwest Postcard Collectors Club is held.  In anticipation of the March meeting I am going to post some of my cards.  I’m never quite sure what I am going to look for, nor what I am going to find, at each meeting.That’s part of the fun.Last month I got sort of carried away by Sheep.  The seller has promised to bring more “sheep” cards this month.  I am also going to be on the lookout for dogs and cats.  And cards from places where I have lived and traveled.
