Every once in a while, my four-year-old asks me to show her the jewelry in my jewelry box. This time, tucked in amongst the jewelry, we found vintage 1980s Valentines I got when I was in kindergarten. My mom saved these mementos from 1989 and recently gave them back to me. Thank goodness for moms and their tendency to save the important little things…
I love that these cards show some of the most important characters of my childhood. Mario, Minnie, Rescue Rangers, and Barbie! They were and are some of my personal faves. I especially love the outfits on Minnie Mouse and Barbie. That bow and those leg warmers!
I was going to show these to you on Valentine’s Day…but I couldn’t wait! They are just too good. If I’ve triggered some 1980s nostalgia and you want to buy some vintage Valentines, I’ve found some that are available on Etsy:
Are you a child of the 80s who remembers the characters on these Valentines? What are your favorite mementos from your childhood? Tell me about it in the comment section below!
