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

https://www.etsy.com/shop/vonderval
Our featured member of the Pacific Postcards Team is Valerie, owner of Vonderval, a gorgeous little shop that has a large collection of ephemera.  I love old papers so this lovely shop grabs my attention.  It features many photographs, cabinet cards and postcards just to name some of her collection.  Each pretty nostalgic piece conjures up image of fashion and fancy from years ago.  Here are a few of my favorites:

From Valerie's Profile Page:
"In my workaday world, I operate an urban indoor flea market for vintage and handmade things that compliments my Etsy paper shop and provides an opportunity to meet and exchange with other local artists and collectors. It's a balancing act between the exciting, chaotic bustle of a busy marketplace, and the more contemplative and creative space of my home studio office.

Living on a huge island off the west coast of North America, can be a bit insular but my shop here at Etsy connects me to interesting and artistic people from all over the world. Starting out I had no idea how much I would enjoy my shop. Even though I have enough stock to supply one, I never wanted a shop because I don't want to be chained to a storefront six days a week. Etsy has allowed me the freedom to have my store and leave it too. What could be more perfect?

I hope my offerings are as stimulating for my artistic Etsy friends as they have been for me. Use them in creative projects, mixed media art and scrapbooks too.

None of my items are reproductions, digital or otherwise, and they come to you generally in the condition they were found. Items are described as completely as possible and I always try to identify any flaws or damage but all of my items are old and as a result will show signs of age - which we like right ? Enjoy my postcards, paper and photographs but please don't copy them without permission as I do not assert copyright ownership on any of these vintage items."

If you are interested on becoming a member of the Pacific Postcards Team please go to this link http://www.etsy.com/teams/9158/pacific-postcards-team?ref=pr_teams and click "Apply."

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.
