Mementos

I started collecting Postcards and Coasters years ago.  I got the idea to collect coasters from a Flight Attendant I was flying with.  I thought it was a great idea since I don't usually have much room for souvenirs in my roller bag.  It's been eighteen years since I bought my first coaster and my collection keeps growing.  


 I display my POSTCARDS in this old-fashioned style postcard carousel.  

I keep my COASTERS in a big basket.  
Friends enjoy learning about my travels to the country (coaster) they've chosen.
