Sadly, I missed the big day here yesterday for National Vinyl Day , but still always a cool place to hang any time. What I had never noticed before was that they had postcards! I liked them alot, but to send out to people in other countries they probably wouldn’t make much sense, nor would a lot of them probably be appropriate for younger citizens at Postcrossing.
Maybe I should look and see if there is a 43Things postcard exchange.
Shake It Records owner Jim Blase is extremely cool and is a living history book of music. :)
Just google images for them and you’ll see pretty much the entire interior of the store, which happens to be very hip and 2 stories.
I recently went to an Imax film with some friends at Museum Center, and lo and behold! they had lots of Cincinnati postcards. And only 47 cents each! I’m gonna run down there again when I get my check and buy a handful so I can start sending them out again. :D
Got my second postcard somehow, even though I’ve only sent out one. This one came from a college girl in Taiwan named Sylvia. It’s a great feeling to find something in the mailbox now besides bills and junk mail. :D
It arrived yesterday from Marianne in the Netherlands. It shows a view of Rotterdam with the old port and the famous cubic houses. You can read about and view them here: http://unusual-architecture.com/cubic-houses-rotterdam-netherlands/ Postcrossing is awesome! I wish I had a scanner so everyone could see what each of my postcards looks like, though. :(
Cindy from China sent me a message that her postcard arrived yesterday. She was very excited about the postcard and the Winnie the Pooh stickers, and she said that she did not yet have bank notes from South Africa or Lesotho. It definitely gives me a good feeling to ‘hear’ the excitement in her response. I will definitely be sending out more. I can’t wait to receive my first postcard now. :D
