Happy Valentines Day

I thought I would share a few of my favourite vintage American Valentine cards. I recently bought a large quantity of these but picked a few out to keep myself. Most of them date from the 1920s and 30s and many have ingenious moveable parts. I think these are really sweet and I prefer them to some of the earlier more traditional hearts and flowers cards.




This cheeky chap has to be one of my favourites.
