About UsAre you a collector or an artist who uses postcards in upcycling projects? Do you prefer postcards to be pristine as possible or are a few creases OK? Do you like to pick and choose individual cards or do you enjoy the bon marche to be had in a group lot? Let me hear your preferences! Send me an email and let me know if you're looking for a specific topic, style or motif. I have about 10,000 European postcards (mostly French) and your input on what you'd like to browse through is always appreciated!

My obsession with anything French goes back to my high school days in Miss Priddy's French language class. I've been to France 7 times, most recently for 2 weeks in Paris and Provence this past Spring 2013. I found that antique and vintage postcards are one of the best ways to 'own' a piece of French history and culture. I bought my first batch of 50 French postcards from a flea market dealer at Isle sur La Sorgue in June 2003. My collection is now around 10,000. I have more than 1,000 cards in my personal collection which I restore and alter to create original greeting cards and graphic designs. Here on Ruby Lane I'll be offering cream of the crop postcards that any collector would be proud to own!
