It was just about ten years ago that I noticed shiny, glitter-filled postcards becoming more mainstream – and sold at a premium, of course. But although my daughter has got many such shiny postcards, I don’t think I’ve ever received one.
Until I got this postcard last week (my second of 2014):
This is a most welcome addition to the Collection to provide an important specimen for such a prominent and SHINY emerging genre. And so appropriate that it’s from Vegas the shiny, glitter capital of the World.
Here’s Vegas’ less-shiny side:
“Back in Vegas yet again! I hope of the glitter on these postcards make it to you! [It did – yeah!] I’m downtown at the Golden Nugget, then moving to MGM Saturday and Harrah’s On Monday. Cheerio.”
Ahh to have such ennui at a visit to Vegas. One could be here in Ontario where it has been around minus 20 Celsius (minus 30 with wind-chill factor) warmed only at the joy of receiving such fine new specimens!
