Awhile back I shared two vintage photobooth pictures and some Easter postcards from my collections. I think I failed to mention, however, that I have been collecting vintage ephemera since I was a girl. Yep, born to be a dork.
When I was in grade school there was a huge barn full of amazing antiques in the center of town (one of the benefits of growing up in Vermont). I thought it was terribly sophisticated to go in there and browse, but the only thing I could afford were postcards.
I think the one above was one of my earliest "acquisitions." As a kid and a huge Anne of Green Gables fan, I couldn't imagine anything more romantic than a note from a secret admirer.
This must have been in the back of my mind today, since I broke out the Gocco again and made some vintage-inspired postcards for my shop (though mine are more cute than romantic) . I've never made postcards before, and I hope they are a hit! I'm waiting for them to dry so I can photograph them and list them tomorrow.
