Jane Austen's House Museum Postcard

I am a big fan of Jane Austen. When I visited Bath last 2005, I was able to visit another Jane Austen museum and was able to buy several Austen items. Unfortunately I wasn't able to visit the museum in Hampshire, even though I stayed at nearby Dorset.

If anyone want to trade Jane Austen postcards or items, please do leave a comment.

Jane Austen's House Museum Postcard

Jane Austen's House Museum is a small private museum in the village of Chawton near Alton in Hampshire. It occupies the 17th century house (informally known as Chawton Cottage) in which novelist Jane Austen spent the last eight years of her life and where she wrote Mansfield Park, Emma and Persuasion. The Museum's collection includes eight music books owned by Jane Austen.
