Stationery Collection and Hauls

Stationery Haul #11 – POSTCARDS from / Papemelroti / Carousell

Hello lovelies! I hope you’re having an amazing day so far. 🙂

Another late night shopping just happened 😜 and I bought postcards from 2 different shops. I also finally got the postcards from another seller in Carousell. The seller wasn’t shipping during quarantine, so I had to wait until she does. I mentioned in the last haul post that I want to expand my postcards collection and so here it comes!

I saw someone in the postcrossing group on Facebook buy these postcards. And I just fell in love. ❤️❤️❤️ These definitely didn’t disappoint! I will buy more from this shop in the future. Ms. Cynthia was very friendly and accommodating and shipping was fast, too!

Forest Fruits (Philippine Native Trees), Set of 30
– Php 500.00
– printed on 300 gsm fountain pen friendly acid-free FSC-certified card stock
– each postcard has a brief description at the back

I love a product with a good cause. And even more of very good quality. It’s definitely a steal for Php 16.67 per postcard. I have bought more expensive postcards with lower quality card stock so this is definitely worth buying.

This 30-piece postcard set features botanical paintings of some of the most interesting fruits of Philippine native trees. Through the #ForestFruitsPh postcard set, we hope to raise awareness for the protection and conservation of Philippine native trees, and inspire more people to plant them.

Limited edition postcard print of a watercolor painting showing a girl whiling some time away watercolor painting inside a coffee shop. Behind the wall some distance away, a guy is typing on his MacBook. Will they end up meeting in a fateful encounter or will they remain strangers to each other? Who knows. 🙂

Now you know I buy a lot of things from Papemelroti. And postcards are one of them. Aside from the postcards being made from recycled materials, it’s also 5.5″ x 5.5″ in size. Which means more space to write on! I sometimes find smaller/regular-sized postcards limiting especially after I’ve decorated it with washi tape and stickers. Moreover, postcard topics include Philippine culture related, Biblical quotes and other positive messages.

I bought quite a lot of postcards and will link each one by column (based on the photo) and from left to right. All of these cost Php 6.00 each, but they were on sale for Php 4.00 each when I ordered.

I inquired about these postcards way back April, about the same time I inquired about the postcards I featured in my Stationery Haul #8 post/video. The seller kept it on reserved status since. Luckily, the seller now allows shipping through Grab. These are old unused postcards, with some yellow stains and tears. These are not Philippine related, but I bought them because the prints are nice and so I have a variety of postcards that I can use.
