I'm in a bit of a listing rut with my shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/agnesofbohemia. My husband gave me an early xmas present of 800 vintage postcards. I now have around 3,000 vintage postcards to sell. I never know what to list next. It's like trying to order at a restaurant from the world's largest menu. I need help! I have postcards from most of the states, and some non-US postcards. The non-US postcards I have are mainly from France, Italy, Germany and Belgium. What U.S. State should I pick to list from? Or which one of those countries? I'll follow this post and list what is mentioned here next (unless it's from one of the few states I don't have, like Georgia).

Do you collect vintage postcards? If not, do you collect vintage anything? When did you start collecting? How many do you have? Do you buy them or are they/were they given to you? What's the oldest one you have?

What's your favorite look from this current fashion season? Favorite color from this season? Designer this season?

What state or country should I list my next card, be from? Any US state (except Georgia, don't have any cards) and the countries are France, Italy and Germany.

I haven't heard of some of those, will have to look them up! Thanks. Do you have a favorite color from this season?

I have cards of Baltimore, yay! So I'll list one right now. Thanks! I'm in a rut and having problems deciding what to list, so I'm hoping asking TQC will help.

I forgot, what are this season's colors? I was thinking red was, but someone told me that was last season? Now i'm confused.

I'm out of the loop, period. I'm trying to get 'in the loop', but so far it's not working, lol.

I have Washington and Oregon, which would you prefer? And I'll list it after the XMas card <3

Massachusetts, Cape Cod if possible. (I'm only saying this as I've recently been kinda-seeing someone from there heheh.)

You should probably post Wintery looking cards because it's nearing Christmas.

You're right. I do have some Christmas cards I haven't listed yet. So after I list a Baltimore and a Cape Cod card, I'll list a Christmas/New Years one. Besides that, any particular state?

Thank you!

eta: Any advice on when I should start listing Valentine's Day Cards? I started my shop April 2012, so I'm still new to selling postcards around the holidays, etc.

I promised a friend I'd dig up a vintage RI postcard for a project her daughter is working on. Can you message me if you happen to have one? It would be a lifesaver.

Oops, I meant RI. You did mean Rhode island, right?

Phew! lol. I actually might have a card of Rio, lol. I used to definitely have one, but I sold it to someone in Canada who was going to use it as one of her table markers for her wedding.
