Old collectible postcards (and more…)


Do you know what I like? You guessed it! And the older it is, the happier I am.

If it smells of mothballs, I'm the happiest yet! Take a gander at this Shackman Collection postcard. Just look at the art. I don't even care if the information is the brain area is at all accurate. I'm no doctor… all I know is that I'm happy just looking at it.  


Look at this foot! Same thing! It could be an alien language written in those dashed circles and it just wouldn't matter. I've gotta have this foot!


I want to wear those masks…  

4…and these too!  

5   These not so much…  

6 …but these look like a ton of fun!    

7I've been like this since I was a kid. Give me an eccentric old person's stuff and I'll find something amazing in it! I'll take that over some run down electronics any day of the week. You'll have to do some hunting and pecking for the stuff that I like, but visit shackman.com. If you do, you may never buy a greeting card or postcard from a grocery store again.
