Vintage Postcards for Your Preening

Preen is a great shop in Downtown Tucson. It's run by two Preeners/seamstress mavens Emilie and Erin. I love the way they create a shopping boutique that mixes funky with vintage and stirrs it all into very style-forward contemporay environment.

Preen just got in a wonderful treasure box full of old postcards. I'm partial to New York architecture and nature, and found a few interesting Metro NY cards. I also picked up a beauty circa 1940s from Los Angeles.

The store is full of little gems. The ladies also have a sewing station in back for alterations. The postcards can be repurposed and used in mixed media art, or in beautiful greeting cards...or just enjoyed for their fabulous colors and designs! You should check out Preen (272 East Congress) next time you're in Downtown Tucson.

Great idea. They look like some I have put away from the past. Do you have photos of more. Maybe you could find someone with a camera(D300) to take shots and you could post them.....

She doesn't need me and my D300. She takes her own with her D70 now.
Oh, what have I started?
