A few more days to go and we shall be saying goodbye to 2012 and welcoming the year of the Snake, 2013. Apart from New Years resolutions and stuff, I also plan to build up my postcards collection, completing all of my 50 US States map cards, my UNESCO World Heritage Sites and maxi cards collections, as well as collect as many cards from rare countries as I possibly can. I also plan to improve my stats on Postcrossing.com by reaching 100th cards sent and received status. Yeah, someone will be busy writing and mailing postcards next year!
I know I need to find more people to swap with but, more importantly, I also need to find a stack of new, beautifully-designed cheap postcards for these people to be inspired to swap with me. National Bookstore is my go-to store to shop for postcards, but for the new year, am thinking of exploring other possibilities and checking out online card shops for a variety of designs. There are only limited designs at the bookstore, see, and I’ve probably bought and traded most of them, anyway. So it is time to look for other sources of great postcard finds. Hopefully I will be luckier and I just wish I won’t need to shell out a considerable amount of money for a new set of postcards, after all, I still have mailing and stamp expense to think about.
This postcrossing hobby do not come cheap, I know, but nothing beats the pleasure of receiving all those beautiful surprises all over the world in my mailbox, so I think am going to have to stick with this for a while.
Where do you shop for cheap postcards?
