Private Stash: Be My Valentine

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone! Make sure to check out Austin’s Valentine’s posts from earlier this week. He shared a collection of early 1900’s up through the 1940’s Valentine Cards. So today I’m sharing my collection of early 1950’s Valentines. I only have a small group of vintage cards and I picked all ten cards up at a consignment store. They had all been consigned by the same individual and were sold as a group.

And here come the puppies to tug at your heart strings! IMG_0062 Most of my cards are considered flat cards, they don’t fold out and you would simply write your message on the back. IMG_0061 All of the cards were made in the U.S.A. The companies that produced them include Hallmark, Hall Brothers Inc., Carrington Co. and A-Meri-Card company.

This card is dated 1952. Cheryl was one lucky gal!

All these Valentine’s read, “To Cheryl”. I am so pleased to have this set that has been together for over sixty years.
