Meet the Members of ETSY's Pacific Postcards Team Part 2 of 2

Continued from part 1....Often I have found postcards that were very difficult find information on. I also have noticed that there is no longer a Postcard Collector's Magazine in publication and very few true informational sites on the internet. In hopes of consolidating the vast ephemera knowledge found on ETSY and to tap into my fellow postcard collector's & designer's enthusiasm I started the Pacific Postcards Team. I would like to use today's post to introduce the current members of the team (including myself) and a small sample of each of their shops.
"Hello. Thank you for visiting. MagisPlace really began 40 years ago when the collector's itch hit. Everything from postcards to primitive furniture, many of which I personally restored.

When the internet became a household word, I fell in love with computer graphics and offered web designs and graphics on a Christian website for 13 years. After retirement, it was a natural transition to combine my love for vintage antiques and creating graphics into an online store offering web designs and restored graphics with great emphasis placed on detail.

We take pride in the commercial quality images created and offered here at MagisPlace. A great deal of time is spent on each individual item with a unique restoration/repainting process that truly produces beautiful images before being endorsed by us. We offer 100% guaranteed satisfaction with all of our...  "

"I love collecting and selling Florida postcards and meeting so many different people on Etsy who also share a fondness for Florida.

Vintage postcards can bring back so many fond memories. I remember as a child the many summers my mom, grandmother, brothers and I would visit tourist attractions that are no longer there. Stopping at a Mom and Pop stand along the way for a cool ice cream cone. Then after a long day of sight seeing we would spend the night at one of the old motels along the way. I remember riding through the Orange Groves and smelling the fragrance of so many orange blossoms! So many pleasant and fond memories of a Florida in the 50's and 60's, and even earlier.

I hope you will enjoy browsing through the many postcards I have listed. I hope they will bring back fond memories for you too!"

"I have been collecting various items for years. I started collecting political items in 1964 when I was a few years old and my grandmother went to a national convention. Later I started looking for the Gurley choir candles that were displayed every year at Christmas. After that I started collecting pepsi and other character glasses. Through the years I have expanded all these areas and more. I have hundreds of holiday decorations, several hundred gurley candles, a couple hundred cartoon glasses and many other items. I also love the old childrens books, and have a couple

hundred of them.

I also collect local and family history. I have written a book on Lantry, SD. The photo you see on my home page is my great grandparents huge sod house. The other photo I use is the original Lantry, SD train depot

"please stop by my second shop with my paintings
I am a mother and grandmother.
I love history and anything in the photographic realm and often have the greatest joy in taking a photo to a higher level such as printing an original image onto watercolor paper or canvas and painting over it. Everything in my store was at one time a photograph but where it ends up can often be a series of experimentation and mixed media. This is because my other love besides photography is painting and I really cannot stop myself from often combining the two arts.

Each photograph has a story and I love that mystery! Also my dad was always carrying around a camera with slide film or movie film in it so our large family of 11 couldn't go anywhere without a few photos for the memory. I think I have loved photos of any kind all my life and..."

"My name is Trishia Jacobs. I'm a Deltiologist Francophile, which is a fancy way of saying I love French postcards! I have been to France six times and I dream of getting to live there, even if just for 6 months or a year. I live an hour's drive east of Portland, Oregon, on the Columbia River.

I have been collecting and selling antique French postcards since 2003. I bought my first batch of 50 postcards from a dealer in Isle sur la Sorgue in southern France in July, 2003. I have been hooked ever since. I haven't counted every single one, but I have close to 10,000 postcards. As the French would say: that's beaucoup de cartes postales! Most of my cards are pre-1914, from the "golden age" of postcards. But I also love the bright colors and designs of the Art Deco 1920s and 1930s postcards. So please look through my shop and check out these "little Van Goghs" -- precious works of.."

"About Isabell's Umbrella
Isabell's Umbrella grew from an obsession with stationery, writing instruments and design. Ashley Giessing, owner/artist, believes she should have been born in the nineteenth century, when all correspondence was done by hand.

Highlights of her childhood include drawing, making little notes and stationery for her little brother and older sisters, and the monthly letters she would receive from her dear Grandma Sweetie.

It was when Ashley first entered the design field that she that she began dreaming about creating her own line of stationery. Four years later, Ashley took that leap -- opening Isabell's Umbrella in January of 2008. She looks to the future and growth of Isabell’s Umbrella with a plan for success..."

"WELCOME TO THE FUZZY LOBSTER'S INLET (the Etsy online store for The Fuzzy Lobster, LLC.)!
I have been collecting various items for the last thirty-eight years or so. As a young child, my parents shared their love of books and music with me and so at an early age, I started collecting books, music, music-related items, ephemera and for a time, comics. My parents also passed on a love of traveling and an interest in other regions, cultures and bygone eras. As I grew older, I moved several times and began to travel a lot and my nomadic lifestyle spurred my own interest in the same, and added a depth and breadth to my collecting that continues to this day.

My interests are extremely varied and it shows in what I collect and what I choose to sell to my customers. It was an easy transition to go from "just collecting," to becoming a seller. With my move to New England in 2008, I decided to... "
