Got a cooooool new Snoopy card from my Snoopy-loving postcard-pal in Tokyo, Japan! Sent her back a cool Snoopy (& friends) card!
She tells me about that bunny-loaded card:
“This is a NEW series ‘Rabbits and Strawberry.’ I was getting it on the 1st day… There are nobody that have the card other than you in U.S.A.!! I also bought a mug that is limited to 100. 🙂 I arrived 30 minutes late at SnoopyTown. I think that I didn’t make it in time. Lucky me. ❤ “
Wow! Not having any Snoopy-themed stores here in the U.S. (unless you make the pilgrimage to the Charles M. Schulz Museum in remote Santa Rosa, CA, as I did to get the few cards I have), I have a hard time imagining the hoopla! I’ve often lamented that Peanuts postcards are not even produced here in the U.S. (outside the source I mentioned), so to have big release dates in Japan for such a thing–the mind boggles! Does it seem Snoopy & friends are more popular overseas than they are here in the U.S.?
I love that card. I remember the bunnies from a Peanuts Easter Sunday color strip I’ve seen reprinted in books. Make sure you look down below at the back of the card, at the super-cool Snoopy washi tape.
I grabbed one of my Peanuts cards, & sent it to her. It has Peanuts washi tape, & a special ink stamp, on the back–but that’ll be in the next post, as it was scanned along with the other SIX cards I mailed out yesterday. It was a free morning, and a very productive one!
