Ok, so I'm a day late, but Happy Valentine's Day!!
A couple of weeks ago while wandering around my neighbourhood, I visited one of my favourite vintage American zakka/material shops called Socks Ciao. I hadn't been in a while so it was really fun browsing their vintage fabrics, books and various zakka products. I then came across of vintage American valentine's day cards. I went through the whole box and chose about 8. I paid way too much for them but I just couldn't resist. The 40s and 50s definitely seemed like a much sweeter time. The cards are not only cute but also hilarious. I got a little choked up reading the original messages on the back. Love is good.
I gave Darin this one
a crafty one
how could I pass up this one?
And the last one is the oldest one of the bunch - 1945...
And there was a little message on the back....and yes I paid 500 yen (or nearly $5 for this card). The others were cheaper thank goodness and I didn't really mind because they were so cute!
