Vintage Postcards and Compacts

Hi bloggers, today I wanted to share with you some beautiful postcards me and the mother picked up on Thursday on our visit to Spitalfields Antiques Market. We hadn't visited Spitalfields on a Thursday before and weren't quite sure what to expect but we were greeted to lots of stalls offering a whole array of antiques and all at affordable prices!

We are always using photocopies of old postcards throughout different projects and I was particularly on the look out for postcards we could use for special occasions, such as Christmas - which is fast approaching already! So have a look at some of the beautiful postcards we found and you can easily pick these up for about £2 per postcard.

This Christmas postcard is very cute and I can definitely see myself using this image on quite a few Christmas cards this year.

This Christmas postcard also creates a beautiful image of the festive season and could be transformed into a tag to use on a Christmas present.

Mum couldn't resist this image of these beautiful ladies in a can can line up. Images such as this are great for projects such as cushions or fabric hanging decorations.

Another Christmas postcard which actually reminds me of those Yellow Pages adverts from Christmas - maybe this is where they got their inspiration from!

This postcard would be perfect to adorn onto any Mother's Day project, so sweet!

This winter's scene would also be great to use on a Christmas card or Christmas project.

Another beautiful image of a vintage lady - lots of great projects this could be used on. Also these postcards have the stamp left on the front of the postcard which adds to the vintage effect of the postcard.

 A stunning vintage couple postcard which is perfect for any engagement or wedding projects you may have coming up.
Another portrait of a vintage lady.

Definitely one of my favourite postcards from the day - could be used for Christmas or New Year.

While we were browsing round the stalls we couldn't resist picking up a few extra compacts for our Compact Memories workshop coming up at the beginning of September. We only have 2 spaces left so if you would like to attend the workshop get in touch quick!
