Hello,
since Covid, all my local shops for buying cards were closed.
Any good suggestions for where to buy great postcards online?
I've been buying so many stamps from the USPS (they come with great delay but they come)

I just subscribed to fotofolio's monthly postcard subscription at fotofolioshop.com , they send 10 postcards a month - some old, some newer. It's actually been amazing but I need even more than that.
All suggestions welcome.
thanks!

Take a look at real-world auctions. You can usually buy substantial lots to keep you going for some time. Large quantities can often be had for very little money - unless your tastes turn to one of the more expensive collecting areas.

To add to above -

All of the these sites sell all kinds of vintage postcards, but what I've found particular areas of strength -
eBay - yes, lots of singles available, prices vary widely depending on vendor
Hippostcard - good for US vintage postcards
Delcampe - good for vintage European (and world) postcards
Etsy - good for vintage artistic/holiday postcards (my wife sells these kinds of cards, she has found they sell best on Etsy)
Auction lots - best way to buy in bulk, e.g. got 600 vintage German postcards recently for less than 25 cents/card
