I’ve been up to my ears in holiday cards: sending, reordering (twice!), and of course receiving them. So what better time to shamelessly blog about my obsession with cards from Hong Kong?
On my last trip there, I bought a ton of cards with no intention of sending them out. Hoarders, take note! I found these at Goods of Desire in Stanley:
When we went back to the airport for our return trip, Tom was such a dear and stood by patiently while I shopped with the last of our Hong Kong dollars. These letterpressed postcards are scrumptious.

I also got these cards as gifts from dear friends in Hong Kong. This one is printed by Lion Rock Press:

I also had these fun Porigami cards from the now-defunct online store, Zengerine. But I saw the same line at Kapok on Sun Street in Wanchai. Here’s the Hong Kong skyline:

I’ll probably end up sending some of these, but until then they are tucked away in an old mooncake box. I kind of hoard those, too.
