I started selling on Ebay many months ago and found that my love for this was really something more than just simple selling or "flipping" - what I thrive on is the idea of taking something beautiful and matching it with someone who will really love it. Like a personal shopper, but for vintage and unusual items. So, I opened an Etsy store today.
I'm starting with a handful of postcards that I bought at a local re-sale shop. They are all of the same family around Pittsburgh, PA and are posed scenes of fishing and camping. I held a few back to frame up but the rest are going to new homes. They're too amazing not to share.
This one is handwritten "Aunte Gerte" on the back.
The same woman? She's lovely. I'm guessing these postcards were photographed in the 1920's?
Expect to see more postcards, vintage feedsacks and linens, quilts and so on. Whatever I can't pass up saving.
