New Members Of The Pacific Postcards Team - Series 34

Good Monday morning.  The air has been much clearer the last couple days since the wildfires started last week so I am looking forward to a much nicer week ahead. 

While it was concerning that the fires were so close to Palm Springs, the skyline looked amazing and eery.  It was challenging to catch the full affect on camera and the pictures fell short.  The sun last week was a bright red ball behind a hazy brown sky casting a strange glow on anything white making it standout, almost glow.  The ash on the mountains looked as if it had a fresh blanket of snow and every morning our car was covered in a dusting. 

 I hope everyone has a wonderful Monday and please help me welcome our new members of the Pacific Postcards Team:

"My grandmothers started taking me to rummage sales as soon as I could walk.

I started collecting old dishes in junior high school, and I have had an antique store for almost 15 years now. It supports my antique habit!! I am addicted to the hunt, the find, the research, the saving and recycling, all of it. I learn something new everyday. I find good homes for the items that come my way ~~ I can't keep them all to myself.

If you have information about an item that I am selling, if your knowledge runs deeper than mine, please share! As stated earlier, I learn something new everyday and appreciate new knowledge.

If you are ever in Beautiful Bemidji MN, please stop in at the shop:

Mattie's Menagerie
814 Beltrami Ave NW
Bemidji MN 56601

Have a great day aye! " ~Vanessa Osborn
Recollections from the Road
Vanessa Rose
"A self-diagnosed wanderlust, I have my beloved camera with me everywhere I go and I love sharing snapshots from the road; mountains, sunsets, beaches, desert, skyscrapers.

I'm originally from New York City but have been able to call myself a Californian for over a year and a half now. I drove here in my little red car taking only what I could fit in my backseat and snapping tons of photos along the way. Many will be shared here with you here.

For more photos (and other things), visit
For my official website, visit" ~Vanessa Rose

Carefully Selected Vintage Postcards & Ephemera
"That lovely lady in my profile pic is Photon, the haughty meanie-cat to whom I am almost humiliatingly devoted. I sell primarily postcards here, but my other personal collecting hobby is paper ephemera of certain sorts: ads, vintage linen postcards, recipe booklets, can and crate labels, all preferably with bright saturated colors. I love depiction of fruits and vegetables, especially citrus: I'm a big collector of older (1950 and earlier) Sunkist ads and promotional materials, as well as Dole."~Jennifer

We have expanded our Pacific Postcards Team past the confines of Etsy. You can now join in the fun even if you don't have an Etys account by joining the Pacific Postcards Team on G+ . Another great way to share our passion for postcards. I have not built a button for this yet so here is the link to our new community. If you know anyone that is in love with postcards and ephemera please pass this link onto them. Go to

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.
Please remember that we have our very own Postcard Forum for any questions about specific postcards, collecting, creating, basically anything and everything about postcards. Finally found a rare card for your collection? Use the forum to show off that new found treasure.
