Looking for Vintage Valentine Cards and Ephemera


I can't believe it is that time of year already! Time to bring out hearts in pink and red. I'm still putting away Christmas! Seriously.

 
While this elusive thing called time is whizzing past me... I am taking a quick look at my shops to see what I already have in place for Valentine's Day.

I'm also looking for things to decorate a tablescape that I have started. Note the word, STARTED.

Oh yes. These will do nicely.
Already for sale in my ephemera
category. The great thing is, if they
don't sell, I get to use them!
A win/win!
 
 
This one is unique as it has a sweet "locket"
and a poem on the inside about it.
Vintage and still unused, in my shop here.
 
 
Now this one above.... this style is my favorite.
The three dimensional "Pop Up" card, available
here. But if it is still around to use...
it would make a great centerpiece or
part of a centerpiece display.
 
 
Mechanical Valentines are also cool!
 
 
 
If you'll notice here the eyes go from
the right side to the left
by swinging the arm a little.
 
Admit it.
The little kid in you wants to try it!
 
 
This one has such an
eye catching red...
What are those
little cupids up to?
 
 
AND it is was made in Germany.
 
You'll have to stop back again
next week to see how I
incorporated them into
my Valentine tablescape.

With vintage paper goods,
red candles leftover from
Christmas and some other
goodies, I'm all set!
Oh and make sure to eat
all of the green foil covered
Hershey kisses from Christmas,
 because then you'll be left
 with silver and red.
 
For now, enjoy the day!

Hi Jillian! Love (!) old Valentine's - they are so charming. I have a few, but I think I might need a few more. Jane

I sold my first valentine thing several weeks ago. Seems we just can't be early enough for some people :) These are great pieces of ephemera you've got...
