This postcard was sent at Christmas-time so the colors (red, green and white) were chosen to match the season. Beneath their company logo their slogan read, “Uncommon Gifts and Home Accents.” The main section of the card promoted their Holiday Open House. They featured the dates of the open house prominently and placed an offer for the chance to win a custom centerpiece valued at $200 for those who bring the card in.
