What better way to celebrate love and friendship than by sharing century-old Valentine postcards, which in many cases, can be had for less than the price of a Hallmark card. In her most recent Postcard Ponderings column, Karen Knapstein examines this popular theme within the time-honored collecting interest.
According to legend, the first Valentine greeting was sent by St. Valentine himself. Vintage Valentines are popular with collectors, who enjoy visuals and whimsical themes. Displayed singly or framed in a montage, vintage Valentines add a touch of retro charm to any décor and are guaranteed to rekindle plenty of nostalgic memories.
