Remember this past summer, when we traveled to Dane and Candy's farm? We picked corn, rode horses, discovered kittens in the barn, built bon-fires, and my favorite - did lots of antiquing!
This is one of my greatest scores - several boxes of vintage valentines from the 1930s-1940s.
Ok, Jill. They're cute. But why are they considered such a score? Glad you asked! Let me explain - no. Too much. Let me sum up. These are super rare and unique because they are as original as you can possibly get them. These were found during a warehouse estate sale. The warehouse has been closed for nearly 70 years! The children of the owner who were conducting the sale didn't even know these valentines existed!
I bought several boxes of these. Inside each box are not only the uncut, unfolded valentines, but their envelopes as well. I'm guessing these boxes were supposed to be distributed to stores, but the warehouse closed before they made it out. Talk about unique!
I picked up sets of children and animals. There is also a large set of 3D valentines. When you fold them, they turn 3-dimensional and stand alone. I couldn't decide which was cutest, so I wound up buying a box of each. I know. I'm so weak!
So for my journaling, tagging, scrapbooking, junque journaling, ATCing, ACEOing friends, here are some delicious images for you!
I'm also selling little lots on my Etsy shop and on Ebay. Ebay has more of an assortment including the larger 3D valentines for those who may be interested in getting hold of some of these rarities! Of course, my Ebay seller name is: buckscountyfolkart.
