With the movement to go green, many people are interested in decorating with materials that symbolize their local community. People are looking for ways to support the local community without breaking the bank. One of the least expensive ways to do that is with local postcards. Local postcards can be found at area museums, historic sites, parks and even gas stations and gift shops. They have a variety of subject matters and accommodate any personal style. One way to incorporate local postcards into personal style is to use them as a small print. This allows the local postcards to serve as a reminder of the community and a piece of home decor. Postcards tend to be sized in a manner similar to photos, with three by five and four by six postcards being easy to find. Find and place a beautiful postcard in an inexpensive mat and frame. The framed postcard can be hung on the wall or displayed on a flat surface like any other photo. Several of these framed local postcards grouped together make a lovely display on a mantle, shelf or wall, lending unique and personal looks to their display area while adding local flavor. Another way to incorporate local postcards into home decor as small prints is to simply arrange one or several of them underneath a glass top table. This protects them from spills and stains and will allow them to be changed according to the season, decor or even mood. Just make sure the postcards stay dry to ensure easy removal.
