I don’t really collect anything. Not with any passion or particular devotion, but if I had to pick one item I borderline collect, it would be old postcards.
My interest is not so much in any motif or period, though I have a disproportionate number of cat postcards, but in what is written at the back of the cards. In other words, I collect postcards with unusual, whimsical, clever or absurd writings at the back. A simple “Merry Christmas! Aunt X and Uncle Y” is not quite it. Sadly, cards with uncommon messages are hard to find, so I have a number of plain ones too.
And lastly, this absurd cat postcard where one cat seems to have half of her body missing.
