Collecting old postcards is a great hobby. Postcards, also know as artistic trophies for the tourist, are widely collected by both the tourist and the vintage postcard collector today. What makes these little pieces of art so collectible? The images on old postcards are like views into the past. Old postcards can not only take your back into the past, but they can take you all around the world. Exotic places and peoples are often found on vintage postcards.
Thrift stores and estate sales are wonderful places to find these treasures. There are also dealers who sell vintage postcards and the internet is a great palce to find these sources. I hope that you enjoy the vintage postcards as much as I do.
