It’s an unavoidable truth: you crave a hobby. The days are dull; the hours are long; and passion has been reduced to tedium. You need inspiration and a quest to fulfill.
And postcards, therefore, seem ideal.
Creating a collection of cards is a worthy pursuit that offers interest and endless themes, and choosing the ways to procure items is easy:
The notion of travel conjures instant images — intrigue, romance, and adventure. Capturing those feelings in more than mere memory demands postcards. The simplest way to begin a collection is to purchase mementos as you bound between countries (or beg wandering friends and family members to send you their reminders). Mark each destination with a card, and keep it tucked safely within a scrapbook.
The miles may beckon, but they can’t always be conquered. There will be times when leaving the confines of your home is simply impossible. Your collection doesn’t need to suffer for that, however. There are many sources (books, catalogues, and prints) available for purchasing. These can offer rare designs and vintage etchings. Consider online stores for a diverse selection, as well as the advantage of comparison shopping.
An affection for cards is not uncommon. It’s shared by millions of individuals (ranking as one of the most popular hobbies in the world), and this has led to the formation of clubs. You will find a variety of local, regional, and national foundations to choose from, which can spark sales, offer information, and create friendships. Unique items can be provided through these venues.
Start your collection and earn a hobby that will never fade.
