13.00

This oversized postcard has "FAIS DO-DO" hand printed letterpress on one side with a vintage font and ornamental border. "Go to Sleep" translation as in get the crying baby to sleep so I can get back to dancin'. The traditional stage at New Orleans Jazz Fest is called the Fais Do-Do stage. The back has space to write, address & stamp it. Your post office can let you know actual postage - but you can send this thru the mail.

Early Cajun musician Edwin Duhon of the Hackberry Ramblers has said, "She'd go to the cry room, give the baby a nipple and say, 'Fais do-do.' She'd want the baby to go to sleep fast, 'cause she's worried about her husband dancing with somebody else out there." - Wikipedia

Stick it up on your fridge or give as a gift, suitable for framing.
