Vintage Postcard Giveaway at Birdhouse Books (ends Tues. 6/10)

I love, love, love vintage postcards!   I have a small collection of vintage dachshund postcards, and also a few postcards from favorite family vacation destinations from my childhood.

Vintage postcards are fun to collect, to frame, to save in a decorative box, or to give for a unique, thoughtful gift (framed or tucked into a special greeting card).

This love of vintage postcards led me to open a postcard department in my store, Birdhouse Books.  I have cards featuring dogs, cats, Christmas, Easter, Valentine's Day, and lots of Roadside Americana (motels, restaurants, stores, amusement parks).   The postcard above features a swimming pool at the Carriage House Resort motel in Deerfield Beach, Florida.   This looks exactly like motels I remember staying at during my childhood!

I'm hosting a vintage postcard giveaway on my blog.   It's easy to enter with the Rafflecopter form below.  The contest will end on Tuesday, June 10, at 11:59 PM.  On Wednesday, June 11 I will use Rafflecopter to randomly draw a winner.   The winner will receive a vintage postcard valued under $10 from my shop.  (Winner selects their favorite postcard in this range.)   You'll see all the great cards in this price range here:  vintage postcards at Birdhouse Books.

I love the Vintage Postcard Party Invitation Girls in White Dresses With Blue Satin Sashes. We're having a tea party for my daughter and this would add a lovely touch framed on a table.

I love the Imperial 400 Motel - Sioux City, IA postcard. It's definitely not your typical picturesque landscape photo you usually think of.

I would love to win the Vintage Postcard De Ville Motor Hotel Des Plaines Illinois Motel IL Chrome PC. I lived in Des Plaines for over 25 years and will have to find out where this was. It looks so familiar. Thanks.
