QUICK NOTE: I do 'NOT' have any of the cards on my favourites wall so would be delighted if you have one for me:-
I am 60 years old, have 3 grown up children and 9 grandchildren. I mainly collect postage stamps but have ventured into postcard collecting too. Looking forward to receiving a variety of postcards (and their stamps) from all over the world.
I enjoy reading fantasy fiction and am a fan of JRR Tolkien and Hobbits, Dwarves, Elves, Goblins, Orcs, plus Dragons too. I love the books and the HBO TV series 'Game of Thrones' by George RR Martin. I am a fan of DC Comics and Marvel Superheroes but I love the Super-Villains too. I like 'The Walking Dead' and 'Breaking Bad' TV series and I am a Harry Potter fan.
I like quirky, funny cards, drawn cards and similar to Bamforth postcards. I am fond of Black & White Postcards, or with single Color Accents (a color splash such as the Hartung ~ Kontraste cards) or 'vintage style' cards. Another love is art by Carl Larsson, Anton Pieck, Davidovich-Zosin, Rien Poortvliet, Arthur Rackham plus Norman Rockwell cards.
Sports wise, I would like FIFA World Cup postcards, Olympic Games postcards or the next 2018 FIFA World Cup cards from Russia or related cards from any participating countries in these events.
If these suggestions (or any of those on my favourites list above) do not match then simply select a card that you would like to receive yourself and I will be very happy. Envelopes are fine too, especially if they contain nice stamps or First Day Issues.
I like to play Chess with my grandchildren and we are fascinated by Lego Minifigures and have built quite a Lego collection. We are fans of classic children's books like 'Alice' too. I love the new 2015 PHQ 'Alice in Wonderland' stamps and cards from Royal Mail. Christmas issue stamps are desirable from any country.
In my spare time, I like to play Bridge, do cryptic Crosswords, play Scrabble and go Geocaching. Cards on any of these themes would be welcome too. Opera, Ballet, Theatre, Movies all interest me.
Where possible please do NOT send me ordinary. tourist view cards, ad cards or folded cards, e-cards or anything else that's not a postcard.
Do respect my privacy. Please do NOT send me Touchnote cards and do NOT give my name and address to advertising companies.
Thank you, John
