Welcome to Remember When Postcards Blog!
… Bridging past and present thru antique and vintage postcards, Victorian trade cards, and old, paper collectibles.
||At Remember When Postcards Blog, readers of our blog are treated as friends, and fellow postcard and Victorian trade card enthusiasts. We have so much fun sharing the collection of antique vintage postcards, and Victorian trade cards with our readers. Join us as we share our journey thru history by bridging past and present with antique vintage postcards, Victorian trade cards, and old, paper collectibles.
In 2001, we successfully sold a Lincoln birthday vintage postcard on-line. After that first vintage postcard sale, we decided selling postcards on-line was the way to add Santa Claus, cupid, and May Farini antique and vintage postcards to our personal collection. Our postcard collection more than tripled during the next several years.
Our interest in and enjoyment of postcard collecting also grew during this period.
At Remember When Postcards, we are committed to offering our fellow postcard and Victorian trade card collectors the same opportunity to enjoy antique and vintage postcard, and Victorian trade card collecting.
|Our goal is to blog about antique and vintage postcards, Victorian trade cards, and old, paper collectibles that:
- Are appealing to the collector and lover of vintage paper (ephemera),
- Will provide a curiosity towards history
We are happy to share the knowledge gained from over 33+ years of collecting by offering reference info such as:
- Glossaries of postcard and trade card terms, and types
- Table of publisher trade marks
- A review guide on postcard and trade card preservation
- Links to fellow postcard dealers, and postcard clubs and associations
** Note, the majority of this information will be on Remember When Vintage Postcard’s reference info page rather than the ephemera resources tab of this blog.
||If you are looking for a particular postcard or trade card topic not listed, feel free to contact us. We may have it in stock, but not listed. If we don’t, we will keep a look out for your topical interest.

Pam has such fun hunting for postcards for our customers.
