Inherited Postcards - Are they good enough to sell?

I am sitting here now going through some of my boxes of postcards.  It is harder to find unique postcards to sell online.  There are so many already available on eBay.  Well let us say they are listed on eBay.  I do find that there are still unusual not too common postcards that get bids.  An auction format usually works when you do not know the value of the card.  Here is a link to a good article on tips of collecting and selling postcards.  Maybe you inherited a box and they are sitting on a shelf in your home.

Here is a Link for tips on selling postcards. Click here

Well it is back to listing.  My seller ID is papel1.

Lazy Fall Day

Not a whole lot to report.  I have been rather neglectful in writing every few days.  Here it is Sat morning and I am ready to curl up an go back to sleep.  I have a cat that likes to sleep on the top of a shelf he jumped down and woke me up at 5:45 AM.  I put her out and fed the other cats but just gave the dog a chew stick.  She whimpered so at 7 I fed her and then at 7:30 I walked her.  Beautiful weather in the 70's.  I am loving sewing on linen and draw string bags are still a favorite thing to sew.  I even embroider on them.  Here is a side shot of the bag.  Have a great weekend.

The Holiday Boutiques are starting.

Not a whole to report.  I bought my usual bag of Halloween candy and as usual no one showed up.  The much needed rain waited til 8 PM last night so most trick or treaters in town beat the storm.  It is boutique time for the holidays.  Right now my niece is manning a booth at a Craft show along with her Mother, and tomorrow my nephew will watch it.  Here is a sample of what they are selling.
Made by niece.  It is so cute

We gave a wood burning tool and my nephew made this nice table top.
