I am a married mom of 3 and deal with collectibles. We sold on ebay in the past, and have gotten away from that. Now we have a collectibles websites, with informational pages I've written on collectibles, collecting and a few other items. I love history and vintage postcards and old books. I hope to blog about my feelings on collecting, trends, different types of collectibles and more.
Vintage Car Brochures, Old Vintage Postcards and other paper collectibles, all authentic, no reproductions. Collectible sports memorabilia is available too. Vintage books, Antique car brochures from the 1930s to new brochures from the 2000s.
There are real photo postcards, 1900s postcards and linen postcards ranging from the 1800s to 1970s. Many items here are from auctions, estate sales and are in used condition, original collectibles, with many in great shape.
Our car brochures are broken down by make, except the Antique Car Brochures all altogether. If you’re looking for Ford Car Brochures the only model not included there are Mustangs, they have their own category.
The Antique car brochures are from the 1930s, and the vintage car brochures are from the 1960s, 1970s and 1980 through to today. There are the popular Ford Mustang brochures, Thunderbirds, Vintage Chevy Muscle cars, and Plymouth too. All of the brochures are original authentic brochure and not reproductions, they’ve been obtained over the years at Car Shows, Flea Markets and more.
The vintage postcards range from real photo black and white, to Linen postcards and early 1900s color postcards. Some of the cards are used with postmarks and stamps and some are like new unused, or unused with some wear, please look at all images and read the descriptions before making any decisions. The postcards as well as blotters and all paper items were obtained at flea markets, estate sales and other forms of collecting over the years.

I know that there are some people that collect car brochures. Some people collect in different ways. We have a fairly good selection of vintage and new car brochures.

There are so many things that were collectible back in the 1940’s and 1950’s and a lot of it was advertising. There weren’t as many venues to advertise as there are now a days, the internet sure has changed a lot of advertising. Vintage Matchbooks and Matchbook covers were very popular during those times and are very collectible. Continue reading →
My husband has gotten the kids into collecting. My son who is 11 likes to collect everything and I do mean just about everything. When they go to sporting events, he runs around after the game and finds programs, give away items, and anything else he thinks might be collectible. My daughter who is 6 gets stuff not because she’s into collecting, but because her brother got stuff, lol. My husband has a great way for the kids to get sport team collectibles for next to nothing and free shipping, and the kids love it. Continue reading →
In our travels we’ve seen many things and done a lot with the kids. We do a ton of camping when we can, but I’m not sure how far we will be going this year with the gas prices being what they are. There aren’t as many National Parks in our area, there are many out west however. Some of the State Parks out west have badge or patches as well the kids can get. The kids have a great collection of National Parks Jr Ranger Badges and Patches collectibles. The first thing the kids ask when we pull into a National Park is, “When are we going to the Welcome Center to get our Jr Ranger Books”. Continue reading →
