When I was in the Brownies, I gained one of my badges by collecting postcards and putting them into an album.
At this point I would like to make it clear that I did not leave the Brownies because they made me sew. I left because Brown Owl had favourites and I wasn’t one of them!
Okay, back to the postcards … As well as collecting postcards, I liked sending them. Unfortunately, as with everything these days, the cost of buying and sending postcards has soared, but I would still like to revive them as part of my snail mail project.
Recently, I found some old postcards, for a reasonable price, at an antiques market. The handwriting on them was beautiful.
When friends go on holiday, I cheekily ask for a postcard to add to my collection!
I’m also investigating the app, Touchnote, which allows you to convert your own photos into postcards.
Please let me know below if you’re a postcard fan ⤵️
