I’m curious to know where Postcrossers buy/find vintage postcards around the world. Please share your spots or finds! In my travels, mainly in Europe, I have come across some little stores or outdoor flea markets where they are selling many old knick-knacks, and sometimes I find some postcards (even unwritten/unsent!).
My guaranteed spot to find amazing vintage postcard finds is in the city of Orange, about an hour away (driving). The area called “Orange Circle” used to have many antique shops, but now they have been replaced by restaurants and cafes unfortunately. Some still survive:
Orange Circle Antique Mall
…there’s a few more
Other than that, internet shops do the trick (Ebay, EBTH, etc). There’s a bit of magic lost there since you can’t rifle through all the knick-knacks, but that’s just the world we live in now.
If this thread belongs to another post, let me know! I just haven’t found a dedicated thread about where people find their vintage cards.
