Please give me the postcards because of the following reasons:

1. I will make a nice display of them in a frame

2. You like me

3. I have glasses

That is all

I too would make a nice display of them. And you wouldn’t need to post them to me, ‘cos I’m in York. (although not in a stalky way, obviously)

I often see one of you running around trying to catch trains. I don’t think you have big enough hands for this.

Thankyou. I like these very much.

I am American. If chosen, I will pay for the postage and proudly display them as well.

Well done everyone! Couldn’t have gone to a nicer group of people – glasses and all. And I will hear nothing of paying postage to my favourite american cousin! Thanks, Jane

These look fab as cards, I will look out for them in paperchase.. I collect matchbox labels too, my dad started his collection in the 50’s and I got the bug from him, although my collection isn’t as big as yours Jane, it’s great that you have them on flickr for everyone to share:)

Thanks Moira – just spent ages looking through your blog. Love those Wade vases – I’m a fan of ceramics with faces on!

Pretty pretty please I have a new house with a very horrible kitchen that I can’t afford to update right now. Having these postcards on the fridge would make it a lot prettier…

Bought a couple in Paperchase Newcastle yesterday – they’re lovely. Started buying some myself after seeing your collection on Flickr – thanks for sharing it. Really like your blog.
