Valentines






I have collected Valentines for many years. I have recent valentines, vintage valentines, post cards, and other things that relate to Valentine's Day or Love. The ones I am posting today are from Hallmark's Historical Collection. They are reproductions of cards printed in the late 1800s. I managed a Hallmark Store for 10 years and then I was a Hallmark Traveling Merchandiser for a number of years. Each time Hallmark came out with a reproduction of a vintage valentine, I purchased one for my collection. I have many more, but thought I would share some today as they are so beautiful and Valentine's Day is near.
I also worked for American Greetings for a number of years as a Merchandiser. I enjoyed these jobs very much as I have always liked greeting cards.
I will post more Valentine related things tomorrow.

No wonder you are so good at sending cards out!
And thank you for the DARLING Valentine! It made my day--believe me!
Beautiful cards---I love those old lithochrome cards and the detailed paper lace they used to put on.
Lovely, lovely!
