About Christel...

Hello, can you please put the date on your postcard, thank you.

My address is:
P.O. Box 444
Berrien Springs, MI 49103-0444
United States of America

My Avatar shows my organized postcards. this process took me almost 3 years to complete. the box on the floor are the ones that need filing. we just recently moved so now I have then in one place. I have been collecting for over 50 years.
I worked for the postal service so my name, makes me literally "Die Christel von der post", that is German. I always bought stamps so now I use those older US stamps in postcrossing. anything postal related would be fine.
I was born in Lüneburg, Germany, and immigrated to the US as a small child with my family. I find it difficult to read and write in German so if possible do not write in German. I do speak German and can hold my own in a conversation. I have a great sense of humor, so funny cards are perfect for me.
"Mecki" cards, Inkognito cards, German yellow "Ortsschilder" are some of my favorites You can even send me a German postcard that you received.
If possible please upload your postcard. If it doesn't cost more, feel free to use an envelope because the card sometimes arrives damaged. it is great to find postcards in my mail instead of bills.

Yes sometimes the postcards end up who knows where. I have 115 expired cards, and into my 7th year of postcrossing. since my sent and received cards are so close, I would guess I have just as many expired cards that were sent to me. I will like any card you send, there is such a variety out there. have a great day and I will see you at my mailbox.
