I love vintage postcards, I always have done for some reason.I remember when I was younger I used to buy them. I used to love going to car boots or flea markets when on holiday (we didn't really have many near us when I was little for some reason!)
I was always facinated with old postcards. Vintage jewellery too, but my Mum liked old jewellery & often bought vintage rings & small things for me which was simply wonderful. I thought they were such treasures!
We also had a fab second hand shop in town that I remember visiting on Sunday mornings with my Dad & this was before shops were generally open on a Sunday so it felt really exciting! The shop stocked the most wonderful collection of vintage postcards & old photos too & I used to love looking through them all. I often wondered about the people in the photos & what had happened to them & why such personal treasures had ended up in a second hand shop many years later.
I was really facinated with the beauty & charm of old postcards & often used to come home with a few of my favourites, that my Dad kindly bought for me!
I often wonder what happened to the cards I collected as I don't have them now, I think I must have got rid of them in my teenage years which is a shame.
I still love old postcards & have a small collection now. I simply love their beauty & find the backs of them just as beautiful, if not more so on some occassions! I really love having ones that have been used to send greetings to a loved one, it seems wonderful to have such a small piece of time that has been captured so simply in writing & people seemed to have such beautiful writing in passed times ...
