There is nothing I love quite as much as vintage and antique paper treasures. I get it from my grandma. Paper from the Victorian Era and up through more recent postcards and greeting cards. I love it all. When a postcard has been addressed and written on, it tells a story. When a greeting card has yet to be written on, it is ready to play a part in a new story! I love searching out vintage paper to use as part of special gifts for special people.
On today’s vintage travels, I discovered a whole bunch of old greeting cards. There were hundreds. If I were in a home of my own, I might have purchased them all. Since I am still staying with my parents and I don’t want to overload their house with my vintage treasures, I picked out a few of my favorites. (The space underneath my bed is full of vintage purses already – eek!) The cards were 20 cents each at a local garage sale – wha?! So cheap. All four of these cards are unused, but I will probably keep them in my personal collection because I love their artwork!
I found so many treasures this week. Flower pots, books, and tea cups. Out of all the hunting and treasures I purchased and didn’t purchase, these cards are my absolute favorite. There is just something about the psychedelic floral art that I can’t get enough of. I can’t choose a favorite! But that little pink-haired angel does remind my of my three-year-old who loves it when I put wash-out pink hair color gel in her hair. OK, maybe that one is my favorite!
If you are interested in shopping for some vintage greeting cards of your own, I suggest shopping on Etsy. The amazing vintage sellers on Etsy offer a dreamy selection of similar cards.
