COPPER POSTCARDS were a popular tourist souvenir in the ‘50s -‘70s at roadside attractions…and they were the type of cheap, mementos that joints like the Wandawega Hotel would have offered guests back then. Those who know us will tell you that we have a soft spot for the little things that were made in the U.S. by small businesses, for small businesses.
We tracked down the current generation still running the family business (who are so charmingly old school that they still do business via phone, fax, and snail-mail). They sent us a “Xerox copy” of a clipart page from the ‘60s with designs to pick from.
And presto! Our little copper postcard dreams just came true. We have no idea how many stamps it takes to mail one of these little beauties, but I'm making Charlie bring a set to summer camp so she has to write home to mom & dad.
They ship bagged and boxed up with a little swag.
