About M....

Greetings from Sacramento, California! I'm an artist and writer and I've been collecting postcards since I was a child. I love to walk everywhere. My dog Pugsley and I take long walks every day. I work in an office and I am a union shop steward there. I like gardening, sewing, reading, and exploring old cemeteries. I like to shop at antique stores and thrift stores. I collect old photographs, postcards, stereocards and View-Master reels. I study Sacramento history and I'm a tour guide at the Sacramento Historic City Cemetery.

I am especially interested in:
small town scenes
street/alley scenes (especially showing people and cars)
strange roadside attractions, museums, motels and restaurants (I would love to get cards from the Legs Inn in Michigan and the Gobbler in Wisconsin!)
aerial views of cities
maps
architecture
night scenes
interior design
housewares
bathrooms/toilets
historical sites
cemeteries
labor unions
motorcycles (particularly British and Italian bikes)
buses
trains
restaurant/department store interiors
Wallace & Gromit
Edward Gorey
vintage 1930s-1950s U.S. "linen" cards
Moscow Metro stations
World's Fairs
Troy Litten's "Wanderlust" postcard series

Or you can surprise me with something unique! Please don't put your card in an envelope; I like cards that have been written on and stamped. Tell me a bit about yourself or your city/country! Please write the date on the card, too.

"Inappropriate", creepy, or weird cards are fine! The only types of cards I don't like are Disney, Anne Geddes, Thomas Kincaid and religious.

I have recently been given several boxes of 1940s-1970s cards. Unless you specify that you do not like old cards, I will probably send one to you!
