Where can I find cheap old postcards?

Postby zeropoint » Fri Nov 29, 2013 4:27 pm

For art projects, I need to get a lot of old postcards with various images. I need this to be cost-effective--I know I've seen tons at antique shops in other cities but not sure if there are any here or not. Any ideas?

Google: Madison, Wi antique stores. There are a few. Then give them a call and see if they carry old postcards and ask the price.

The antique mall at Market Square (over on Odana Road). Assuming they are still around.

This may not turn out to be as cheap as you hope, because there's a pretty active market in neat old postcards with collectors specializing in particular genres, such as tourism-related cards, pictures of particular cities, or natural wonders. Look on Ebay for some examples.
