So, last day of postcards, and I thought I’d share some postcards you can purchase online that I think are worth buying. You can get them online through a large retailer like Amazon, or through a smaller, personal seller, like Etsy. Regardless, they’re postcards I like, either that I’ve purchased, or that I’ve seen online and I covet. There are links so you can buy your own.
I love Johnny Cash. I remember seeing him as a kid, and while not much sticks with me, I do remember him singing. And since the USPS just put out a Johnny Cash stamp, what better thing to put it on than a Johnny Cash Postcard? (Amazon.com)
These postcards were featured on Day 5, but I wanted to post a photo of the cat one as well. I really love these postcards, they’re beautifully drawn, and macabre without being gross. And what I really love about these postcards is that 10% of each sale is donated to the artists favorite pet charity, Austin Pets Alive. They’re a set of 4, 2 dogs, 2 cats, for $5. (Etsy.com)
I’m not being 100% honest here when I link this particular postcard book. All Chihuly postcards are beautiful, so whatever book you can get your hands on, do it! The book I have isn’t listed on Amazon, or on Half Price Books, but they do have a decent selection of Chihuly postcard books for under $20. Amazon has a smaller selection, but you can find Chihuly postcard books like this one there too. (amazon.com and hpb.com)
I couldn’t find a specific postcard to upload of this artist’s, but she does beautiful work, so I thought I’d put the “4 postcards for $8” photo up. She has 23 different pieces of art, and you can pick 4 to make your postcard set. I know we live in an era of $0.40 postcards, so $2 sounds expensive, but the art is exquisite. I was swapping fairy postcards, and my original fairy was lost in the mail. I didn’t have another card, so I ordered a pack from this seller, 3 fairies and a mermaid (#3 if you click through), and they were beautiful. I highly recommend them. (Etsy.com)
Oh, Green Banana cards, I am so happy you have a shop on Etsy so I can purchase your stuff without being a business. I don’t know what to say about these cards other than they’re hilarious and perfect. They add new styles from time to time, so you’re not bound to purchasing a moose, or a lobster (like on Day 5), but there’s a puffin, alligator, grey wolf, humpback whale, and a sasquatch! I’m waiting on an American bison (buffalo) myself. (Etsy.com)
Where The Bodies Are is a weird postcard book. I was sent Bela Lugosi’s tombstone as a postcard, which I mentioned on Day 4, and when I mentioned I loved the postcard, the person who sent me the postcard told me she’d picked it up off half Price Books for like $3. so I went there and purchased my own copy. The photgraphs aren’t fantastic, but they are interesting. And I have to admit, it’s a fascinating subject for a postcard book. (amazon.com)
Okay, full disclosure: I’ve never ordered any of Schin’s postcards. But, I have swapped with her on Swap Bot, and she’s very kind and courteous, and a great swapper. I love her art, it’s so pretty. She has some of her artwork up on Etsy as postcards, as well as prints and other things. I really love the fish in this print. (etsy.com)
So, that’s my week in postcards, I hope you enjoyed them all.
