Happy Sunday! Since reading Virginia Retro's post about vintage holiday cards I've been very envious of her collection. In fact I've read several posts about blogger's finding fab vintage holiday cards and I was feeling left out!
It's rare that I find any vintage greeting cards at the thrifts until now...
|Instant vintage card collection~ yay!!|
This Friday I was at the BFM and happened to wander through the books and cards sections when I spotted four mint box sets of cards each priced at a $1 each!! I couldn't believe it since I know antique markets charge a $1 plus per card. There are over 60 cards in total.
An almost complete set of holiday stationary from Hallmark.

The following two cards are Hi Brows which were made in the late 50s and were a division of America Greetings. I already have a couple of Hi Brows birthday and wedding cards.
I love the humor and graphics of these cards.
