Antique Trader received its first (and very early) National Postcard Week postcard from enthusiast Demaris Swint. Swint’s card (shown) says:

Email me at to trade with other participants or have questions. The larger participant list has 50-plus traders. Want to send to fewer? Go to; joining is free. Trades there are 5 to 20 participants.

Check out the postcards sent in 2018 at and search for “National Postcard Week.”
