We've all had this happen: a postcard or two in your collection gets kind of mangled. Maybe it got stepped on, maybe something was spilled on it. Maybe it's bent. Or maybe a corner was torn off.

Whatever the reason, your postcard is now less than perfect. And may be you don't feel so good about sending it to someone, because you don't want them to think you don't care.

We're going to fix that with this swap.

Find a postcard that's seen better days. Address it to your partner, and write a short note about why it's damaged. It doesn't have to be a true note, maybe aliens borrowed it, or your non existent dog ripped the corner off.

Then send it off, knowing your postcard will have a good home elsewhere, and you don't have to feel guilty that it's not pristine.

4.85 or higher rating, newbies allowed. This is a simple swap folks, you should already have the postcard with you, so no flaking please. I will angel, I have a pile of damaged postcards.

I don't have a busted card to send at the moment but even though I won't be joining I want to put it out there that I love this idea!

I'll be doing these periodically, so if you do end up with a busted, bent, or otherwise mangled card, you'll have a chance.

I drove semi for a number of years, so I have a small pile of mangled cards. The one I scanned in for the picture is only one of many.

@Lilyluzkay Mangle/bust one..! :)

Yes, you could always mangle one, if you can bear to do so.

I ended up "lucky" in that my truck managed to help me mangle quite a few cards.

What a great idea. I have a pile of postcards that were given to me by a dear, elderly gentleman friend. They are a bit damaged but will be great for this swap.

THANK YOU! I have a great card that tore at the corner and my BF was just going to throw it away the other day. I was hoping for a swap like this!
