In Love With Vintage Cards

Lately I have been loving the vintage cards.  The thrift store that I frequent puts all cards in big bags and sells them by the lot.  It's strangely exciting to open them because you never know what will be in your $2 bag.  Will they be cool and old, or boring and new?  I've been getting both lately.  This last bundle I got was packed full of more than 50 cool and old cards which made this little chick was super excited!  The old graphics and fonts are just fantastic and the message are so sweet it almost makes your teeth hurt.

Check a few of them out:

The colors of this one make it my one of favorites.  Maybe those flowers should become my banner on the blog...
The message is pretty great too!  I'm thinking it will appeal to someone in our big golfing community.

The drawing of this one is so girly and most everyone loves kitties.  Here kitty kitty!  The blue gingham border is great.  The bundle had a few of these same kind but in different colors.

These little children are so sweet it hurts!  They remind me of my Grandmas Hummel Figurines.  This was one of the few thank you cards that was in the bundle and thankfully I was lucky enough to get a few so I can keep one and put the rest in my booth.

Does anyone else sell vintage cards in their booth?  If so, how do you price them and do they sell well?

And this one is my super favorite of the entire bunch, pretty much of all the cards I have found so far.  The flowers are so mod and the little girl with her striped stinking cute!  She and I even have the same haircut, it was meant to be!  I'm thinking this would be a cute one to scan and use for the blog.  I'm not sure how to do any of that (button making and all that) so if anyone has any advice, I'm all ears!

This isn't all of the card goodness for sure, I'm saving a few of the really good ones for REDnesday.

I'm going to head over to Smiling Sally for Blue Monday and then over to Southern Hospitality for her Thrifty Treasure linky party.  I could spend all day looking through this blog, it's great!
