My Summer Vacation Art Giveaway

We're taking a brief break from our usual blog topics to ask our Readers about their Summer Vacation/Travel Plans in this installment of the Free Art Blog.  We'll discuss the 'Free Art' part in a moment, but first...



The Art of Travel.  

Vintage travel posters continue to be amongst some of the most sought after works of Art on the planet. 
Many enjoy reflecting on the Golden Age of Pleasure Travel.  New modes of transportation created during the late 19th and early 20th centuries made travel to faraway lands easy to do...and many did.  They boarded planes, ocean liners, trains, took to their cars, and explored worlds newly opened to them.  Artists were commissioned to entice visitors with their paintings reflecting the beauty of their countries.

Collectors frequently visit the Vintage Travel Art section of our shop, 
especially to collect the postcard-sized prints we carry.  
Postcards are a very affordable way for collectors to 
acquire a large selection of these vintage pieces.  

Consider browsing our shop to start your own collection. 
We also share proceeds from our art sales with local poverty charities, 
so buying Art would help those in need as well 
(details of our mission are at
