"My interest in history encouraged my collecting of antiques. I specialize in the world of the Victorian woman and the accessories that she used. I have been actively selling antiques and collectibles for over 35 years which included antique malls, antiques shows from coast to coast and my own shop, The Victorian Lady. My specialties include buttons, sewing tools, textiles, vanity items and my absolute favorite, antique paper,especially valentnes and trade cards. I have been a cat rescuer since I was 10 and now have 4 cats who are fat, sassy and spoiled. Love to read and if it is not a history book then its a murder mystery !" ~Priscilla Washco

Megan Nuttall
"I'm Megan, an Oregon native living in Brooklyn, NY. I'm a copywriter by day and craft-er by night. To me, few things are more enjoyable than receiving hand-written snail mail. That's why I make greeting cards and postcards for any occasion - getting dumped, national hug day and just to say hi.

Outside of crafts I like cats and pie, separately, not together. Unless the cat is sitting in my lap while I eat the pie, that's actually a wonderful combination." ~Megan Nuttall

"I'm an amateur historian of the horse, always seeking, always discovering, striving to deepen my understanding of this magnificent creature. Click

Comments and corrections are always welcome. Since the shop opened, I've happily discussed horse breeds, colors, tack, and other fascinating equine details. If you notice something I missed or got wrong in a listing, don't hesitate to let me know. I'll gratefully stand corrected and you could get free shipping for tutoring me.

I'm the proud owner of a black Appendix mare who proves my theory that first you get the horse you get, then you get the horse you want, and finally you get the horse you need. She's the third, partnered with me for the rest of her life" ~Muddy K

"I am an artist and a writer with a strong interest in the natural world, animals, philosophy, poetry and photography. My work is collage-based, but I also love painting and assemblage. I love upcycling the things around me, and I love the Japanese Wabi-Sabi aesthetic of beauty in shabby and humble things. I don't like to waste anything, including fabric and text. My favourite tool is a pair of scissors.

I also have a vintage shop on Etsy at There is a cross-over in my interests which you can see if you look at the other shop." ~Jennifer

"MARY HOCKENBERY Photography and Photo-Illustration

Fine Art Photographer Mary Hockenbery, represented in galleries in the southwestern U.S., in collections internationally, and in many private homes, captures with her lens artifacts of human existence and elements of nature, translating them through her unique world view into images at once striking, symbolic and charming.

"My photography and photo-illustration work are inspired by mythology, fairy tales, Catholic icons and my dreams,” says Mary. Growing up in Los Angeles and attending Our Lady of Guadalupe School as a child created a lasting relationship with Our Lady and an indelible Catholic influence in Mary’s art; but her images are equally likely to feature circus or rodeo performers, dolls, secular statuary, or the individuality of random human creations caught in passing. Often juxtaposing human components with trees or animals from the wild world, Mary’s images convey a warmly mystical appreciation of Life.

“I think of life as a river, an endless flow,” says Mary. Inspired by the beauty and surprise inherent in the everyday world, inspired by the creative energy of other people, Mary was also deeply inspired by legendary portraitist Richard Avedon’s 1985 exhibition In The American West.

“Sometimes I say I collide with my images,” she says. “I can see better on paper than in real time. I look at my images to understand what I’m seeing out there. I have my interests and my loves, road trips, weird buildings, people doing things. The image makes it real in a way I don’t see when I’m just there. I understand where I live and who I am by looking at these images on paper.”
~Mary Hockenbery
 Velvet Revived
A Digital Department Store

"Hello! Welcome to Velvet Revived! You may recognize me from my handmade shop The Gossamer Tearoom: and my vintage shop Mirabella Morello:

In the same stash of lovely vintage things that supplies Mirabella Morello, I found stacks and stacks of vintage ephemera (collections from 4 generations of women in my family, including myself). I love using digital collage sheets for my artwork and these fun images are just waiting to be used in your craft projects or digital collages! So, have fun browsing in Velvet Revived, the home of delicious digital delights!"~VelvetRevived


If you are interested on becoming a member of the Pacific Postcards Team please go to this link 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.
