Who would have thought it difficult to find a Mississippi postcard? I remember seeing them years ago at service stations, drug stores, souvenir shops, etc., so when Ed Silva from Connecticut asked for help with his grandsons school project, I thought it was an easy mission.

 

Turns out, not so much!MS Postcard

 

I visited a couple of service stations; they didn't sell them. Stopped at a local drug store; nope, not there. Several friends suggested Cracker Barrel Restaurant and Old Country Store, and that's where I found them.

 

Ed Silva said the postcard needed to share facts about Mississippi. A beautiful Antebellum home or lovely Magnolia blossom would have made an exquisite postcard, or a photo of the MS Gulf Coast sunset, instead I chose one that shared a list of facts.

 

Did you know that Mississippi has 26 miles of shoreline? Or that Elvis was born in Tupelo, MS? Our State flower is the Magnolia blossom, and the State tree is also the Magnolia.Magnolia Blossom by Pat Starnes

 

The Mississippi Delta is known as the birthplace of the Blues. The Mighty Mississippi River borders the entire state and flows into the Gulf of Mexico.

 

There is a lot to explore in Mississippi, Raphael. Good luck with your school project!

Good afternoon Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty - I too found it very difficult to find postcards.  I guess it is another thing of the past.

Hi Pat,
Glad you found a postcard for Ed's grandson.  Every state has their interesting factoids, don't they?  Thanks for sharing!

Pat Starnes-Front Gate Realty   I will look forward to getting the card, and I'm sure my Grandson will also be very appreciative.  It has been interesting in trying to locate a card.  There was a time when they were all over the place and I would have to say that modern technology has replaced the simple appreciation of a visual card.

Thanks for the help.

I'm glad you found one! I agree that it's tough to find any place that still has post cards. In order to send my NY state one, a store owner in a touristy section of Kingston NY had to go back into his storeroom and pull out a pack of post cards that they had been meaning to get rid of. He said no one bought them anymore.

I mailed it yesterday Ed Silva so Raphael should have it soon. It's a shame they are so hard to find. Postcards must be getting extinct. :( But it was a pleasure to do this for your grandson.

Kat Palmiotti - wow! It's crazy that postcards are so hard to find. I even searched Amazon but didn't have a need for 6 or 8...

Yes, they did prove to be difficult to find. I  searched several trips out and kept coming up short. I'm happy that other folks found Oregon and Washington postcards and sent them to Ed. I was going to order them online if all else failed. D

I need to post my two state postcards I sent also - I had no idea it would be that difficult to find one for two states either (NC&SC)!

LOVE your state tree & flower - one of my favorites.
