Collection #266: Vintage Easter Postcards

Although my collector's blog is on permanent hiatus, I do plan to stop by from time to time to share the random collection I manage to accumulate while we're living in our small apartment in New Jersey.

For those of you unfamiliar with my blog, I featured my vast collections each week day from July 1, 2011 to June 30, 2012. On the weekends, I shared someone else's collections.  The plan was always to keep it going for a year, with the idea that I might return from time to time to add more things.  However, a few months after the blog ended, my husband Bruce and I moved to the East Coast of the US, leaving behind our big house, and moved into a small, one bedroom apartment. Of course, all of my 'treasures' couldn't join us. (Bruce was happy about that!) We had a large estate sale, and put the rest into storage.

One thing that there's always space for is ephemera... postcards, greeting cards, programs, brochures, letters, etc.

Today I'm going to share my collection of vintage Easter postcards with you!  Aren't they adorable? Most date from 1910-1920. You might notice that there aren't many Easter bunnies. I'm not sure why that is... but aren't the chicks, chickens and birds adorable? Lots of eggs too!
