A Postcard from Sweden

5


5 per unit - - Posted Feb 07, 2018

Are you a postcard collector looking to add one from Stockholm? Are you a distant admirer of Stockholm, Sweden, or just Scandinavia in general? Do you have really boring walls that need some low-cost sprucing up? Do you just like getting random surprises in the mail? Whatever the reason, I can help you out! I love sending out postcards and would happily send you one. I have an ever evolving library of postcards to choose from, though right now I'm trying to make a dent in my back catalogue instead of buying new ones. This includes vintage SF book covers, Swedish vintage children's book illustrations, Japanese landscapes, art by Pamela Colman-Smith, and assorted turn of the century oil paintings.

If you don't have a preference, I'll just mail you something off the top of the stack. :)

Note that this isn't an offer on Postcrossing; this would be here, through Simbi. That said, I'm open to payment in a postcard swap as well as in Simbi.

Training & Qualifications


I live in Stockholm and have enough discretionary funds to purchase postcards and stamps. I already regularly exchange postcards with my friends so it's not a big deal to add another postcard to the pile!

Availability & Preferences


This can happen whenever.

Trading Preference: I’m flexible, just hit me up!

About Katherine Koba

Everything I enjoy comes down to words, details, and helping and educating others. In my work life, I'm a professional Swedish -> English translator. I work with corporate documents: everything fr...om annual and interim reports to internal memos to press releases. I was a freelance copyeditor and ESL tutor before that. Before that I spent two years teaching English at cram schools in South Korea, and before THAT I was a cave tour guide. In my fun life, I co-organize a local writing Meetup, translate semi-obscure Swedish women writers into English, and read a lot. I also work on my own writing projects, which tend to be character-driven SF/F and literary novels. I'm a bit of a language nerd, too; I study Russian and Korean in my spare time, and try to keep up my high school German and college French. I also like to surprise people with postcards and tea and other fun things in the mail!show more
