New Members Of The Pacific Postcards Team - Series 52

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



Vintage CAT Postcard: Feeding a Kitten with a Bottle by a Little Bare Butt Child
"An avid DELTIOLOGIST (postcard collector) for years and years, I collect, buy & sell them... so perhaps I have some among my many thousands that are just what you might be looking for? Take a look through my listings!" ~ Penny Andrea




Unused 1950's Gingham Dog Brand Dog Food Can Label From National Pet Foods in Rockland, Maine

"I have bought and sold antiques and collectibles for over 35 years now, had a few shops, booths in malls, and have set up at many shows and flea markets during that time. I love old bottles and jars, advertising, paper goods, tins, and you name it, if it has interesting graphics, I like it. In the last 20 years or so, I've specialized in old paper, buying and selling anything with interesting graphics on it including vintage labels, stocks, trade cards, old packaging, seed packs, posters, prints and all kinds of interesting paper stuff. I'm still always on the lookout for interesting old paper from a piece or two to a room full."

Antique Victorian Illustration- Instant Download- A Girl & Her Dog- Digital Scan- Printable Victorian Art

"With the inspiration & encouragement of my Nana, I started collecting antique postcards when I was 12 years old. I now collect a wide variety of antique & vintage ephemera. By offering instantly printable digital downloads, I can share these wonderful images with my customers, and at the same time, work to preserve and expand my growing collection.

My scans are performed on state of the art equipment, with a resolution of 600 DPI. This ensures that your instant downloads with be of the highest quality. I also use photo editing software to meticulously restore any imperfections or damaged ephemera. Antique ephemera scans will look pristine, yet still retain their yesteryear charm.

I am not new to Etsy. I have 2 other shops... one that showcases my fine art photography... and another shop that specializes in vintage goodies.

Please have a look at PhotosByDollymae & VintageByDollymae. There you can review my customer service skills, or maybe shop around for a few things." ~
