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!
