Monday Meet and Greet the Members of the Pacific Postcards Team - SavannahSmiles4U


Today's featured Pacific Postcards Team member is Charmaine Buttrill owner of SavannahSmiles4U at http://www.etsy.com/shop/savannahsmiles4u.  This wonderful shop features vintage postcards from Florida.  How fun is that?!  The images from these postcards are exactly why I became hooked on collecting when I was young.  Imagine what it was like for me as a 10 year old girl that lives way out in the frozen tundra of Wisconsin during December thumbing through her postcard collection.  I would get to the ones with scenes like these from Florida and get lost in travel through sandy beaches and tropical palms.  I would dream palm trees, I would sketch palm trees and finally 30+ years later I am finally living in palm trees.

This is one shop you do not want to miss, especially if you have a collection that has a beach theme or is about Florida.  Here is a little bit more about Charmaine Buttrill and her charming shop SavannahSmiles4U from her profile page:


"I love collecting and selling Florida postcards and meeting so many different people on Etsy who also share a fondness for Florida.

Vintage postcards can bring back so many fond memories. I remember as a child the many summers my mom, grandmother, brothers and I would visit tourist attractions that are no longer there. Stopping at a Mom and Pop stand along the way for a cool ice cream cone. Then after a long day of sight seeing we would spend the night at one of the old motels along the way. I remember riding through the Orange Groves and smelling the fragrance of so many orange blossoms! So many pleasant and fond memories of a Florida in the 50's and 60's, and even earlier.

I hope you will enjoy browsing through the many postcards I have listed. I hope they will bring back fond memories for you too!"   
~Charmaine Buttrill

They definitely do bring back my fond memories; thank you Charmaine.  I hope you enjoy browsing through this treasury of Charmaine's vintage postcards and make sure you stop by her shop because she has many many more!

We have just started offering 2 different memberships: one will be for general membership, for those who love postcards and collecting postcards and the other will be for shops with at least 25% of their
items listed are postcards.
The only difference in the memberships is that the latter will be included in shop
interviews, BNRs and postcard related activities. We also plan on having activities for
the general memberships. Hope to see you there soon.
