Mine came from a local country style Buffet/Hotel/Giftshop. Not a great selection of subjects, but it stretched my creativity.

Mine was bought in a sportswear shop in Dundee. I didn't even know about the competition then and bought it as a general postcard, but it will be good for the competition.

EDIT: Actually correction, it was a mill shop. So jumpers, outdoor clothing (that's where I'm getting muddled with sportswear), woolly scarves etc. They had a few postcards on a birly thing outside the door, and that's where I found mine.

Well it looks like I'll have to visit the local antique and resale shops this week to search for my own selection.
