Where to Screw Email

The Screw Email Blog lives! In my estate sale scavenging, I found two shoeboxes of letters and postcards for sale, postmarked and filled with abandoned story and sentiment. (I'm the only person at these sales who looks for non-blank cards.)
Now, I have over 100 cards, so I can keep the blog running for at least that many posts, and by then I figure it might actually catch on enough for people to be comfortable sending me things.
You are included in people.

As a result of my postcard shoebox purchases, I now also have a whole ton of blank vintage postcards, too. I figure I can sell five postcard grab-bags, but here's the question: do I sell them with all my other vintage finds on or do I put them on Off the Wall Greetings because they are cards and a bit off the wall?
Suggestions? Inklings? Comments?

Red Fish

I had an hour and a half to kill before an appointment in a town I never go to. I wandered into a resale shop. I'd taken public transportation, so I was limited to things I could home carry in my bag--probably a good thing or I would have ended up with giant cork lamps and random pieces of bric-a-brac to sink a boat.
One thing in particular could not be left behind:

Created with flickr slideshow.

I see it in a room with animal print and reflective surfaces, or against white walls and modern lines. It smells like an ashtray, alludes to being a soap dish, and would gladly keep a ceramic panther company on your mantle.

My listing on Etsy is mildly entertaining, too.

Hey, look at that! I have two shops! And each shop has somewhat of its own cohesive look! Nothing earth-shattering or perfect, but the gobbledygook plaguing my existence seems to be manageable, so voila!

Oh, the stories I could tell about the things already in and going to be put in my JillHannah vintage shop...
Don't worry, I will tell them. Just not tonight.
