Vintage Valentine Postcards and Illustrations for Collectors

I love the vintage and antique Valentine greeting cards and postcards. It's a small collection added to when I come across the postcards and art at antique shows and flea markets.

According to the postmarks, many of the postcards are from the early 1900s, the greeting cards are from a little bit later in the century, the 1930s through the early 50s.

These can be easily downloaded to be used in Valentine craft projects.

All scans are from my personal collection of vintage Valentines.

The postcards date from the early 1900s and the cards are from the late 1930s through early 1940s.
