sovietpostcards:

Hi everyone, today I’m introducing my etsy shop to the world, and I’m so excited about it! I’ve been collecting Soviet cards for years, and I’m now sitting on a massive amount of duplicates and cards that don’t fit into my collection. I finally decided to try and sell them. I know what I will buy with the money… more postcards! :D
Come check my shop, and add it to favourites. I also created a special coupon code just for you my tumblr followers: add TUMBLRFAN when checking out to get a sweet 5% off your order!
I do hope you guys help set off my little shop. I will be adding more postcards at every chance. By the way, I can do custom orders too. Message me if you’re looking for a specific card, and I will do my best to hunt it down for you!

Postcard from Tartu Toy Museum with Ded Moroz and Snegurotchka (Santa and Snowmaiden - in Russia they usually travel together to give gifts to children)
I love the sour faces of the toys - not very happy or just very dedicated, no time for smiles when so many children are waiting for their gifts!
The card tells these toys were produced in 1960-ies

New Year is srs bsns.

About:

All things Soviet (1922—1991): photography, objects, songs, movies, persons.

I'll collect Soviet memorabilia here that I like and that gives that special nostalgic feeling for the "good old times". I'm Russian and I was born in the USSR, so some of it carries a special meaning for me, they are things I remember, bits of my childhood. Earlier eras also fascinate me big time. I want to capture daily life of ordinary people in the big country rather than its political and military history. Life that is still remembered and missed by many.
