I'm not sure if this is the size that you would like, but I'm giving it a try. A teacher supply that I purchase from has them. I found them my searching through "craft kits" on the home page.

www.teachersdiscovery.com

And, they are only $1 each!

moldyhotelsaregross (hahaha - I HATE using your screen name!!) that is a neat site. The cards are not quite the same as the ones I'm thinking of but they are pretty cool. There's lots of other great stuff on there too!

Yes, Moldy, those are so adorable! I want all of them to put on the top of my computer desk. Very appropriate since the screen is always on www.fodors.com anyway.

Taggie - If you know anyone learning a foreign language, it is a great site.

If you do some searching, you will find that my first post was about a disgusting hotel bathroom and the poor customer service that followed. I have received *Many* comments - most laughter!

I did read your first post, and I must confess at the time wondered if you were a troll.
I agree with the sentiment expressed in your name, but when I shortened it I didn't feel right calling you "moldy"... although I see dln got away with it!!

Hi Sandi, just a quick note to let you know that my MIL found the postcards that you wanted. I won't be home until late tonight so I'll email you tomorrow to see if you'd like any of them. Maureen

So everyone can visualize (and order too) here's a website that mvor gave me.

http://www.mirontaine.com/shop/card_models

The only one I'll be missing is the Eiffel Tower but you have to order 20e worth. Oh well, it'll give me yet another reason to go back to Paris...as if I need another reason!

Hi Sandi, you can get the Eiffel Tower for $1 on the site that moldy referenced above. The Tower is also included in the France 12-pack that they offer (Pompidou, Sacre Couer, Louvre, Opera, Monet, Notre Dame, Bastille, etc.). They don't list the publisher but they look to be the same. Not that I'd want to discourage you from taking another trip to Paris!

Moldy, thanks for the link! There's lots of great stuff on their for kids.

Maureen

mvor, I must be blind but I cannot find those on that website. What do I click on from the main page?

I found it but they are not the same. It says that the model, once complete is only 3x3. I know that the Notre Dame I put together was much bigger than that.

Sorry to hear that they're not the same. I'll send you the Eiffel Tower (the others are in the post already). I'm going back in July so I can replenish my stock then.

mvor,

the cards came today and I've already assembled the Arc de Triomphe. Thanks again for looking for them for me and mailing them. It was fun to see them and I can't wait to go back and add to the collection!

I know this thread is wayyyyy old but I have about 6 of these cards. Wondering what I should do with them? Ideas anyone? Or what they are worth now?
(C) 1986 J. M. Appert & (C) 1988 J. M. Appert & EDITIONS "CLAIR DE LUNE "
I have:
Normandie XIV
Bourgogne XVI
Artois XVII
Carousel 1900
And 2 others that I think are a Villa but they are all sealed and don't want to open them but the envelopes are covering what they are. Thanks for any help!
