the postcards I bought(after I finally found some!) I got at a little old time shop (like the 1950s penny candy store) and they were 4 for $1.20. Usually not that expensive

maybe it's just me, but i was surprised at how hard it was to FIND postcards. it seems like i've seen them everywhere, but now that i NEED some, they're nowhere to be found...
i did find some at Meijer stores. In one store they were in the greeting card section, and in another they were at the end of the u-scan line (where you can't see them until you are already checking out--and even then, only if you are in the u-scan line!).

yeah I had the same problem the store I found them at, was actually a last resort!!! I even went to the rest station for tourists on the interstate, but they were OUT of them at the worst time possible lol.

I buy mine at Walgreens and Long's and they are usually about $.25 each. I have a bunch from Knott's Berry Farm in So Cali and I can't wait to send those ones out. If anyone here isn't on the master list, please PM me, I have a ton of cards and I can't wait to send them out to people.

I sent all the postcards out from the master list as well as the people who have talked to me personally through PM. You should all get them soon!! I have received two thus far, and can''t wait for more!!! I still have a bunch to send so, if anyone else would like to join, I know a lot of us still have bunches of them left and would be willing to include you in the swap! I hope to receive PM's from those of you who'd like to swap with me

When i got my postcards i got them for $.25 a piece. I had the same problem that alot of people had i was only able to find one store that carried postcards. I thought that was crazy.When you don't need them they are everywhere and when you do they are no where to be found.
