An antique postcard from my own collection, inquiring about the sale of a piano, from Maud to Hugo:
7/8 - 10
Dear Friand: You may stand a show of turning a few organs as a few spoke of it to me and possibly to sell a piano if you are still at the trade. You can see the country anyway.

Hello! to folks popping over from my post on The Etsy Blog today. It was super fun to put together. I need something bright in my house more now than ever – as I type, it's snowing in Minneapolis! For the record, it's May Day (what gives, Old Man Winter?)

This documentary looks amazing! Finding Vivian Maier started with a trunk full of negatives purchased at an auction for $380 dollars. No one knew nanny Vivian Maier was an accomplished photographer, let alone one with an exhaustive body of street photography chronicling 1950s and 60s Chicago and New York. Little was known about her personally, even her self described close friends were shocked at her secret passion. Vivian died in 2009, so she remains a woman of mystery.
