CLOSED Help Me De-Stash - Postcard Giveaway!

Postcard Giveaway for UK & Ireland Only!

Hello all! I hope you can help me with a bit of de-stashing. There will be a new little arrival into our family very soon and I’d love to try and clear some more space before then… :hatching_chick:

While accumulating postcards is one of my all time favourite activities, it’s time to pass a few on, so I hope you can help!

I’ve made up a few more envelopes, each with a mix of ten art cards - they’re all random, but here’s a picture as an example of what you might expect:

Happy to send more details or photos if anyone would like - just let me know!

I’d love to send any of this little lot out to British Isles Postcrossers (UK, IOM, Channel Islands and Ireland)

*Please note the only non-UK destination I am willing to post to at the moment is Ireland

If you’d like a random art envelope, please let me know and I’d be delighted to send it out to you. I don’t need anything in return - I’m just happy to clear a bit of space before we start to gather all the baby necessities!

Thanks so much, gang!

Update - sent out this week:
Hollywood - @EmmaG
Space - @Mariannin
Penguins - @rvalkass
Van Gogh - @wormole

Awww Congratulations :baby:t3: exciting times!
I’d be interested in the Hollywood postcard book please, if it’s still available? x


Hi @katiemmj

I so understand where you are coming from. I have to move in summer, and I needed to realise earlier this week that my postcard collection to send out has more than doubled since I moved from Belgium 18 months ago. Shame on me!

I would be very happy about the space cards. We have a small set of national stamps with astronauts on it, and it would be great to send them out together.

What a great reason to de-stash! I joined to get rid of extra cards I found while cleaning and organizing my place. That didn’t work! I have more cards now than ever! :joy::grimacing:

What are foxed edges? Can you explain, use another word or show a picture so I can understand. I’m in the US and realize I’m not eligible.:smiling_face:


Thanks so much everyone, for both the help de-stashing and all the lovely congratulations! :partying_face:

I have a nice little bundle of envelopes to send out later today, so hopefully they’ll be with you all very soon!

@dchristian75 I’ll never understand how postcards just appear where you least expect them all around the house! Foxing is the brown spots you sometimes see on old books and paper products - there are some pictures here: Foxing - Wikipedia :fox_face:

PS. There are still more random art envelopes and a few of the postcards books up for grabs to UK Postcrossers - I’ve updated the main post to show what’s been taken.


If it’s possible to send to the Netherlands I like to receive some

Hi @katiemmj congrats on the soon to be new addition! If you have any envelopes left I would love to receive one. I’d be happy to send postage!

I’m ok for cards thanks but just to wish you all the best for the end of your pregnancy and a safe arrival of the new future Postcrosser (tip from experience… Start them early!).


@simmo11 thank you so much! And yes, absolutely! I’ve already started priming friends with littl’uns to setup some little future penpals! Next generation Postcrosser for sure! :love_letter:


@katiemmj very best wishes to you and yours ahead of baby’s arrival!
