The next project: Wandawega Postal Center

I’ve sort of been obsessed with collecting vintage postcards of the Elkhorn area. After years of amassing a proper collection, we found a great printer to recreate them all on vintage linen stock, just like the old-school originals.

Then we scored an original United States Postal Service stamp dispenser (ebay) to accompany a box of New Old Stock “sanitary stamp sleeves” with old advertisements. To complete the installation, we scored a 1950s postcard rack on etsy.

Finally, my OCD postcard-station-wall will come true. Next post will be the finished product. Stay tuned & don’t forget to write home!
