postcards from 1979.

today with my friend Salla we stopped by Kierratyskeskus. there are always so many peculiar and interesting things at the recycling centre: this time I have found two children's postcards from 1979.
aren't they beautiful?
little Reppi must had sent them as greetings to some special friends and they must have hanged them somewhere on their bedrooms wall - as there is a little hole on each of them.
I wonder if cards like these were common in Finland in late 70's: hopefully I can find some more in a flea market. I had never seen them before though: they have such a peculiar shape and they are much bigger than average postcards.
thank you little Reppi for writing these down many years ago!

  5. vintage finnish postcards and these even better hand made findings are so common in Helsinki flea markets that it makes you want to stop by each single small flea that you encounter.

    thanks for sharing :)
