Vintage Valentines

So at one particular "old folks" thrift that I go to, the volunteers are the sweetest! They also have great deals - in fact I purchased my $2 Cuisinart food processor here. Score!

I spotted a bag of vintage cards for fifty cents recently and inside was this cute beaver valentine!

The bag had a bunch of pretty terrible Get Well cards and a sweet Easter one. Unfortunately, most of the batch were either written on inside or just plain dowdy looking. Haha, I can't complain for the price, but who donates used cards?!

This card is kind of hilarious although if you described to me the concept of a suicidal, love-struck beaver on a Valentine, I would probably look at you a little funny. =) I was just relieved to get one gem of a card within the junky pile.

Linking up to Thrift Share Monday!


  1. Someone I know just adds her signature to the used cards - the old ones have so much personality - love yours!

  2. The used cards could be used for scrapbooking - amazing graphics for scrapbooking!

    Love collecting old cards. I think I have 1000's.. haha.

  3. thanks for the comment on my blog, I rarely update which is why I just saw your comment a month later! Would you believe I found a lonely lid at VV that fit my pot perfectly!! I've since found a large le creuset terrine, and have no idea what to use it for, but it's so beautiful!

  4. hah! oh my goodness, i love the beaver card! they just don't make cards like they used to!

  5. Haha, the card probably isn't very politically correct for these days. Someone would probably complain, but how can you have a problem with those cute buck teeth!?
