I tend to come and go on this site although in recent months I have been rather active.
You can be assured that your postcard will be displayed on my kitchen wall for a few months.
When one wall is full I start on the next and when all are covered the first wall is emptied, the cards filed and then the next batch of cards come on the wall.
That way I can see the world whilst eating breakfast :-)
Although British I have lived in Germany for very many years. I live not too far from Frankfurt but we also have a house in the East of Germany so maybe you'll get a card from me from there.
On my travels I always pick up a few cards so I usually have a wide choice here to find the right card for you. I rarely have to shop especially to meet your needs.
I'd like to receive tourist type cards. I want to get the feeling that I need to get out and be right there.
I'll get to visit all those places on my kitchen wall one day, I'm sure of it!
My particular favourites are either illuminated night scenes or old black and white cards showing a town as it was many years ago. If you have old cards and then new cards of the same place I would be interested in getting both from you and would more than gladly send you a card in return.
If you are from Africa or India then please note that I LOVE elephants. Although so massive these animals show a vast range of feelings and I find them fascinating.
I recently got a couple of cards from my favourite TV series. These are Dr Who/Torchwood, Friends, Fringe and Gilmore Girls. So if you happen to have anything in this category, that's another thing I enjoy. I have also recently started to collect oldtimers/hotrods/Trabbis and also the PHQ cards from UK.
I have no objections to Ad-cards if they fit into my collections.
And now a message for those Germans living in the eastern states: Falls ihr noch alte DDR Postkarten habt, die ihr nicht wollt. Her damit. :-) Die DDR Zeit fasziniert mich sehr und dafür habe ich einen Extra-Sammelordner.
I thought it would be a good idea to have the country flag as a postcard to head the cards from each country in my collection.
I am looking for postcards with:
US state flags
German state flags
Canadian state flags
To avoid doubles here are the ones I already have: https://picasaweb.google.com/105621563079421768879/Flags?authuser=0&feat=directlink
