HoofPrints owner Gina Keesling's note:
"Single blacksmith postcards sell for much more than this on ebay - this is a great deal for anyone crafty to frame these up, make collages, do scrapbooks, etc. All the cool stuff I was planning to do with them when I got time. I've finally decided to move on and let them go. You can get inexpensive black frames at the dollar store, frame these up and hang them as a group on the wall in your den. Stick a couple worn-out tools up there, an empty Hooflex can and some horseshoes... you'll be as quaint as Cracker Barrel!"
