Rubber Stamp or something similar to autograph the meetup postcards. Pens, markers, stickers, washi tape, decorative stamps etc. (anything you like to write or decorate cards with)

I’m also interested in attending. This will be my first meet up. Will there be items for purchase?

HI,

I look forward to meeting you. I do not have things for sale. There will be dealers around the room who will have postcards for sale.

This is my first meetup in California so don’t know which dealers will be there.

Happy Postcrossing,
Demaris

I may have to bow out this time around. Omicron is still spreading. I’ll wait for another time. Have fun and Be safe.

Don’t count yourself out yet Maria. You may have already had Omicron and recovered by the time it’s the 22nd. I had it in mid-December and in a zoom group tonight, 5 out of 18 of us had it. A friend just got it and he only uses N95 masks. Luckily it’s mild for everyone I talk to.

Sorry you will not be able to make it. I will send you a meetup card . Demaris

Hello Demaris I will be at the show tomorrow. Is it possible to join your meet up

I went. Meetup started at 10am.

Meet up over. I left at 3pm. It was pretty neat. Small group of people.

Thank you Demaris for organizing it.

And her sister Elaine.

Thank you for being gracious hosts. I enjoyed hearing your stories and tales.



And the meetup card.


Who wants one? We have a lot.

Very fun time indeed.

Great photos @princeofasturias !

Yes, thanks so much for setting up this meetup and so generously making and sharing cards @ezredax .

After almost 2 years spent mostly in my house, it was just so nice to spend a couple hours meeting new people who have this hobby in common with me and learning more about all of you. I hope this is just the first of many future LA area meetups and that I will see you all again someday.

Til then, take care and happy Postcrossing!
Heather

Thank you. There are times when I read the announcements for meet ups. And often wonder w
What happened at the meet up and what did the card look like. So I figured take pictures. Lol
