Our Meet and Greet the Pacific Postcards Team member is Grandma62 and goes by Granny in her profile. Granny is from the Netherlands so her shop offers me a variety of postcards that I have not yet seen here in the US. She has many postcards that depict whimsical images of kittens and puppies along with postcards filled with babies.
Granny's postcards are all vintage (my favorite) and offer a mix of real photo and art. My favorites, of course, are the little kittens from an artist in Belgium. One of the things I love about her shop is that she offers the shoppers information about the markings and artist of the cards. Here are a couple:
"Welcome at Granny's Post Cards Shop
I have to reorganize my shop.You have probably already seen. Want to know where my other postcards are let me know and I mail you the link to my grandma62 Z shop
From my early childhood I have collected all sorts of Edwardian, Victorian and vintage postcards.
I also have old photographs, promocards and postcards of moviestars.
Because English isn't my native language, I will offer all those different cards with good pictures and simple information. Please forgive me my grammatical mistakes.
Thanks for stopping by and enjoy your visit."

We have 2 different memberships: one is a general membership, for those who love postcards and collecting postcards and the other is designed 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.A friendly reminder that we are just about to wrap up our Treasury Challenge and today is the last day to contact me if you would like to participate in the upcoming Pin-It-To-Win-It contest as a shop owner.
