When Do You Use Them? Marne wears her Penguins jersey to every game she attends or watches on TV. Her post cards are on display and she plans on framing them. The post cards also offer up some fun facts! On the back of the “Pittsburgh’s New Civic Auditorium” card, the civic arena is described as hosting “prize fights, circus, ice follies, wrestling…and home of the Pittsburgh Hornets (hockey) and the Pittsburgh Rens (basketball.)” !
Shopping Tip: Marne recommends visualizing what you’re looking for before you go out shopping. If you know you’re looking for a pair of vintage heels, you’re more likely to find them than someone who is shopping aimlessly!
