skype and facebook make it so easy to keep in touch while you’re away these days, but i still love buying postcards as a little souvenir of a trip or nice day out. but recently i’ve been stumbling across little boxes of old postcards tucked away in the corners of vintage shops, and then spend hours rifling through them. not only do i love the pictures, but the messages are an intriguing insight into another life of another time, whether it’s a quickly scrawled holiday story or just short message to send some love to mum.

you can find vintage postcards in lots of vintage stores, some independent stores or on eBay.
