Post Collection: Hong Kong Postcards

April is a month of deadlines for me, but I am determined to update around here! For today, I want to introduce these Hong Kong themed postcards!

[Note: Image Credit for all pictures in this post belongs to Post Collection HK. I personally paid for all these postcards and scanned them to share on the Postcrossing project and this blog.]

As much as I love the online world, I’m really into postcards and snail mail, even more so when I was introduced to Postcrossing. Some time ago, I saw these illustrated Hong Kong themed postcards being shared on Postcrossing and I tried, but failed, to find out where to get them.

I forgot all about it until I was catching up over lunch with my friend in Mongkok and since she was also a Postcrosser, we started talking about it and she goes, “Hey, I need to show you these fun postcards, you’re going to love them!”

So after lunch, my friend took me to a shop inside CTMA Centre in Mongkok where I bought these (sorry, but I forgot to note down the name of the shop!). I think the girl at the shop was wondering why someone was so excited over postcards, of all things.

The good news is, apart from CTMA Centre, I found out that Post Collection opened a postcard cafe in Causeway Bay last year [*Update: the cafe has moved to Wan Chai, location details below], selling coffee, food and postcards!

I haven’t had the chance to visit the postcard cafe myself but I will when my current stash is all mailed out! Most of the cards I bought have already travelled to different locations around the world and I really like the idea of sharing bits of Hong Kong via postcards. :)

If you’re travelling to Hong Kong, I think these postcards might be a fun alternative to normal postcards or if you live here and like cafes, here’s a new one to check out maybe?

    Thanks for this post. I found it googling things to do for my trip to Hong Kong. I visited the Cafe today and loved it! I only knew about it thanks to your article.
