|A Small Sample of Our Collection|
I bought as many of his whimsical cards as I could . . . sent originally to friends and loved ones to mark birthdays and holidays (even April Fool’s Day – look for the ones with silly pictures of people holding a fish!). Some were even sent just to say nothing more than hello or “I’m thinking of you” – an Edwardian version of the modern text message!
|An Edwardian April Fools!|
The last time we saw Daniel at the Vanves market, I had a nagging feeling we had not bought enough of his postcards. On a whim, my hubby Adam urged me to get his contact info. I did, and as soon as I got home I fired off a letter and the sixty Euros in cash we had brought home. Weeks went by. I began to worry.
|The Connection Comes Through!|
Yesterday, my faith was rewarded. In the mail was a bright and colorful “La Poste” priority envelope marked “Surprise!” (Yes, it’s a French word, actually.) And inside . . .
We’ll have some of these sweet cards and other ephemera at the Harvest Market this week, Thursday-Sunday, November 10-13. I hope we see you there!
