Vintage camellia kitsch

Camellia City: vintage kitsch

This vintage postcard came to me from a correspondent from The Fountain Pen Network.

Wow. Dig those dresses.


  1. almost looks like a place called cypress gardens or what used to be called cypress gardens in winter haven florida and it started in the 50"s for winter tourists . They would wear dresses like this . I m sure anyone who googles or wikepedias cypress gardens will see what I am talking about . This post card remind me of that place .

  2. Oh man, I'll have to look up where that is, because I didn't take a photo of the back of it - but I believe it's in Alabama or somewhere appropriately "Deep south."

    HOWEVER -- I did get a marvelous vintage postcard of Cypress Gardens in Florida, too! It will be blogged in order at a later date. Fun coincidence that you should mention it!
