Swap Cards

Swap Cards were a passion (more like an obsession) I had as a child. There was only one problem, I never wanted to part with my cards. I remember swapping a couple of times & then going home in tears because I wanted my old cards back! I obviously wasn’t a born swapper.

We took them to school in great big bundles with rubber bands round them or some of us (like me) had them in posh swap card albums to keep them in pristine condition! There were kittens, puppies, horses, flowers, patterns, holly hobby, Snoopys, Butterflies & lots more. They even had a distinctive smell!

I found these images on the internet, I had all of these cards (below). Do you remember yours?

    How much did we love our swappies? My girlfriend still has hers and every time I visit I ask her to get them out & I go through them… LOL! There are quite a few for sale on ebay. I remember some girls had soooooo many they couldn’t go through them in just one hand! I loved the kitten set (I’m sure I had the whole set, even the purple one). Wonder what ever happened to mine?

    I still have all of these except the black flower girl!!! Everytime I look at them I have this deep deep nostalgia. They were our life!
