New Members Of The Pacific Postcards Team - Series 51

Welcome to the Pacific Postcards Team Meet and Greet.  We have a great team that had start simply as an Etsy Team but has branched out into Artfire, G+, Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest.  We would love for you to join are team and help promote New Artistically designed or reproduced postcards, collecting vintage and antique postcards, creating digital art, and anything to do with ephemera and vintage imagery.

First I would like to introduce myself, Colleen (Captain) and Frances (Leader) of the team:

"First a brief little introduction: I grew up a Midwest farm girl from Wisconsin but through a series of moments of self discovery I have since moved to California and live the city life in Palm Springs.  I live in a beautiful contemporary home where my husband and I have designed a small but very beautiful Japanese Garden.

Unfortunately, though, the contemporary look does not blend with my passion for vintage and antique Victorian froufrou.  So I have created for myself a virtual world with my shops.  I welcome you to my attic filled with all the treasures found and creations made especially for you..." ~Colleen Cornelius
"I create mixed media, collage, folk art, religious icons, jewelry with a twist, paintings & digital art. Frida Kahlo has long been my muse and some of my art is inspired by her colorful life and paintings. I also enjoy dressing up in costume for any occasion but especially for Day of the Dead, Dia de los Muertos celebrations and of course as Frida.

Hunting for treasures at flea markets, thrift stores and antique shops is also a favorite past time and I often incorporate these objects into my art..." ~Frances Perea

WELCOME I hope enjoy your visit to my store....tags, magnets, wall art all perfect for a gift to you or a gift to a friend. Thanks for stopping by!

Here you will find sass and lots of humor in my digital printables and handcrafted magnets. Using vintage magazine ads for the magnets has a retro appeal. The ads from the 1950's are full of color and great graphics. I hope that you will stop by again. Lots of new sassy items coming!" ~Elizabeth

Vintage Destination Postcards - Buy one, or Buy in Bulk

"My items are antiques and vintage items of a high quality I find on my wonderful journeys into Des Moines and the surrounding areas. I always try to bring my buyers items with flair, personality, and quality. Ask me to keep my eyes out for any kind of item you want to see!"  ~ Donovan Cole



Bunny Fun

"I have always made art since I was five, when I was drawing horses. When I was in art school in California, I always carried my drawing pad around, you could see me drawing any time day or night.
I have BA and a MA in fine art, got to study with some great artists. Terry Allen was a big influence on my art making, Wayne Thiebaud an Charles Arnoldi on my painting.
I stated print making, by making lino print cards for every holiday. 
I love art, it is what brings me joy." ~Geraldine Serpa


"Hello everyone!

My sister and I opened a shop on Etsy to share our passion for crafting. At first it was only postcards, then it expanded to gift pouches, gift tags and some other things. While I curate the shop and contribute to idea generation process, my sister is the main manufacturer. Whatever you see in the shop is all the doing of her hands. It was easier when we were both in the US, but my sister had to go back to Belarus, so now we join our efforts across the ocean. A possible shortcoming of this situation may be this: while whatever there currently is in the shop is available to ship from the US, custom orders are made in Belarus and shipped from there. Shipping remains free regardless of destination, though may take longer.

For this reason we decided to open a second shop operated from Belarus and curated by me here in the US:

Thank you so much for stopping by!"  ~PostcardiYA
