About M....

Greetings from Sacramento, California! I'm an artist and writer and I've been collecting postcards since I was a child. I like gardening, sewing, crocheting, reading, genealogy, exploring old cemeteries, and shopping 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
- streets/alleys (especially showing people and cars)
- roadside attractions (I would love to get cards from the Legs Inn in Michigan, the Gobbler in Wisconsin, Roadside America in Pennsylvania, and Bevo Mill in Missouri!)
- cities, especially aerial views and night scenes
- model railways, miniature displays, dollhouses
- maps
- architecture
- interior design, housewares, kitchens, bathrooms
- historical sites
- cemeteries
- labor unions
- motorcycles (particularly British and Italian bikes), buses, trains
- department stores, restaurants, bars, cafés, pubs, museums, hotels, motels
- 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.

My "favorites" are a mix of cards I've received and cards I'd like to receive. Don't worry about sending me a duplicate - your message will make it unique!

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!
