Where do you find these great cards?

Mostly on eBay!

 Why did you choose these particular cards?

I tend to focus on collecting cards from places where my family has lived at one time or another. I like to find cards that ARE used, since it's the message & the names that interest me the most!  But since I sometimes by a lot of cards at auction in order to get a particular card, I also have cards for other places, some of which are posted here, and some of which I will put up for auction on  eBay  or for sale at the future The Olden Times Bookstore.

uBid is the marketplace you can trust!

 

Why didn't you include all the messages?

Not all of the cards have messages!  Some have been included because they may picture a landmark building or a popular tourist destination or a well-known hotel. Others may feature a town view that would have been familiar to someone who lived there 80 years ago, with signs for shops and restaurants that have long since disappeared.

Do you collect other stuff?

Yep. Way too much of it. 

Almost all of the old newspaper stories, obituaries, birth & marriage announcements, etc. on The Olden Times are scanned from vintage & historic newspapers in my collection.

Do you ever sell any of these postcards?

Yes, on occasion. 

Sometimes I buy an entire lot (group) of postcards in order to obtain one or two particular cards. Since vintage postcards are usually not very expensive (yet), this isn't quite as extravagant as it may sound!  The cards in which I'm not interested will probably be put up for auction on eBay.  

Don't miss the postcard links for some great buying resources, too!
