Chrissy's Postcard Page

May 3, 2008 - what the ... good gravy - you mean this page still exists? Holy Frijoles! I had no idea!

Seriously, everyone, sorry for the, ahem, delay in updating the page! It's just that a lot of stuff has happened - life, other web pages, etc. - and I felt like I'd just kinda moved on.

But every once in a while someone finds this page and emails me about it. And I really appreciate the continuing interest.

However, I don't know if I really have the time or energy to go thru the links and do the necessary updating. Maybe I will one of these days.

Meantime, I hope you enjoy this fine example of a late twentieth century website (nyuk nyuk!) and if you're inclined to see what I'm up to, please visit my latest new website, The Curvy Catholic!

July 25, 2003 - Happy New Year! Yeah, I know, it's been a while, but I'm still around, adding links and checking for broken ones. Don't despair, I'm still there!

August 13, 2002 - - THANKS for visiting my page! I know it's been a while since I updated it, but I'm gonna try to do better from now on, I promise! Please drop me a line if you have any postcard links you'd like me to add. (Let's keep it clean here, folks - this is a family page, nyuk nyuk!)

I love postcards. They're like little windows through which you can travel around the world ... or even back in time. Read the messages on the back and imagine you're looking over the writer's shoulder -- sometimes you can almost see them! Don't worry too much about the "value" of your cards right now -- if you like them, they're valuable. Here are some ideas to help you get started:

POSTCARD LINKS -- view 'em, read about 'em, buy 'em!

Sabine has been collecting for 25 years and here's her collections -- she has some cool stuff and I like her dog too!

This site is fairly new and seems to have some good cards available.

If you grew up in Kansas City, Missouri, you�ll love these Vintage Images of Old KC!

Wow, I just found this -- Vintage Postcards -- great place to buy and/or sell your cards and build your collection!

William J. O'Hern has collected some both breathtaking views and impressive historic scenes of the Adirondack Mountains!

EchoPark.Net -- the *B*E*S*T* place to view historic L.A.!

Here is a site with great books about postcards like this one! (Just do a search for "vintage postcards" to bring up more!)

This is where I used to ask people to leave a message in my guest book. Unfortunately,, which sponsored it, has gone under. So if anyone knows of a decent free guestbook service available, please let me know - thanks! Meantime, is still in business so feel free to click on their logo and buy a book from them -- I get 3 cents if you do! (nyuk nyuk)
