HeeHee- Trolley Square
(they say when you get old that your memory...). But yes, Tabula Rasa is a fun shop with great stationary goods, I used to frequent them when they first started at the Crossroads location. However it's more than out of the way, on the other side of the mountain range and more than 50 miles from here. Not a real big deal, but basically plan a day trip to look for a postcard.
Lots of good recommendations but same story. There just aren't any close options. I did stop at a thrift store and found a few, but they were left overs from other vacation land marks and hotels (China, Korea, Hawaii...). I'd at least like to send send things that are relevant to where I am, or things I've done.
Though I'm sure there are some great cards the internet, I just don't want to order them online. I'm a big fan of internet shopping for everything from electronics to tires because of my location, but not pens, paper, shoes, or things that I just have to touch first.
My real gripe is the ironic fact that modern postcards are made of materials that can't be written on. No wonder people don't buy them, and if they don't sell, stores won't stock them, so...?
I am capable of making my own cards (I do it frequently for others), I'm simply disappointed that I can't walk into a local shop pick a real card off the rack.
