*********************************************************************************************************Some added thoughts on buying vintage postcards...

These tiny slices of time have excellent uses:

-- Gifts: Slide into a birthday card. Tuck into a Christmas stocking.

-- Gift Tags: Use as a gift tag on a larger vintage gift.

-- Collectibles: A postcard collection is inexpensive and doesn't take room. Find a theme you enjoy (lighthouses, night scenes, cityscapes, etc.) and have fun.

-- Education: Help a child start a collection (animals, state capitols, etc.)

-- Send them: My friend uses Victorian postcards as her signature stationary.

-- Art: Great for collages, shadow boxes, altered art, etc.

-- Frame them: Display one or several. Perfect for displaying along a stair railing, bookshelf, mantle. Small enough for a powder room wall, in a travel camper or tiny studio apartment -- anywhere you need just a little art.

Right now, I ship to U.S. only (with some exceptions).

COMBINED SHIPPING? YES, when items can be shipped in one package. Once you have paid for shipping on the first item, additional similar items ship for free.
This policy applies to MOST of my inventory -- vintage ads, illustrations, postcards, swap cards, photos, and maps.

*My aim is to charge actual shipping plus a nominal amount to cover packing materials. If I can save you money, I will.

ABOUT BOOKS: Books under 16 oz (after packaging) are generally sent via US First Class or Priority. Heavier ones go via Media Mail to save postage.

IN A RUSH? I don't do special mailing (overnight shipping, Fedex) but I'm happy to get it to the post office quickly. The post office usually delivers my items 2-5 days after I mail them, and most often 2-3. I live in central US, so that helps!


I'm happy to cancel an order within two hours of purchase. I'm flexible about longer periods, if I have not already shipped it.
