Nancy Drew Postcards

Posted Oct 22 2009 12:00am
I'm not even sure when I bought my first package of Nancy Drew postcards (although I can narrow it down to when I lived in Illinois). They are super thick, much thicker than your typical postcard, and attached in a flip-book style format where they are bound at the top with adhesive gum. There are (now were) 12 included.

The second set of Nancy Drew postcards came in a boxed set of 30 and are your typical style postcard. These postcards, as well as the thicker ones, are all reproductions of different Nancy Drew book covers.

I love Nancy Drew. I have the complete yellow matte collection. I had over half of them from when I was growing up and completed the rest thanks to ebay several years ago. I still want to be Nancy Drew when I grow up.

But this is about my postcards and what I did with them.

I purchased three ready-made frames from Wal-Mart.

Figuring out which ones I wanted to include was probably the hardest thing I did.

The pictures on identical titles changed over the decades, so some of the postcard pictures were a little more antiquated than others (think hairstyles and clothing).

I tried to be sort of consistent in the style I was picking, and they were the ones that would usually be found on the yellow matte covers like I have. Many of the older ones were from when the books had dust jackets.

It's hard to take a picture of something with a glass front and not get a glare!

They are hanging up in my personal scrapbooking/crafting area. Yes, which is still builder beige along with the rest of the house.

Maybe someday I'll have a little detective office up there, too!
