Dear Antique Trader,
Sorry to be a straggler, but I just read your article about the response to National Postcard Week (NPCW). *Revisit the June 7, 2017 issue of Antique Trader to view images of postcards to come in as part of the celebration of NPCW.
Pleasant Discovery of Collecting Interest
I didn’t realize I was a postcard collector until I went through my Russell Stover candy tin. It is full of postcards.
Here are a few examples for your collection. I just bought a few vintage postcards at the Shawano Flea Market (www.zurkopromotions.com). Think I’ll go back this Sunday in hopes of finding a few more.
I would be up for a postcard exchange — any types.

Editors’ Note: We welcome correspondence from any reader at any time, therefore eliminating the label of ‘straggler.’ If you can relate to Ms. Prothero’s recent discovery of being a deltiologist (one who collects postcards), congratulations and we hope this is the beginning of an exciting time in your life as a collector.
As Ms. Prothero references in her note, we are open to postcard exchanges. We decided participating in NPCW was such a joyful experience that we’d continue throughout the year. Simply send us a postcard with a message indicating your desire to become postcard pals and your address, and we’ll return in kind.
