Happy Valentines Jackpot!!!

Whoo Hoo, doing my Happy Friday Dance!  I have a busy weekend planned and can't wait to get on with it!  Such a fun time of year!

I have been teasing y'all for a couple of posts about the "Jackpot" that I hit at an estate sale the other weekend.    Well here it is!
Mega vintage Valentines!  I got an entire box, almost 100 valentines!  It wasn't priced and I approached the fellow with the pricing gun with concealed excitement and asked how much.  He took one look and said "Looks like a bunch of junk paper to me, how about $1.00?"  I said that works for me and was jumping up and down with joy!

I mean they really should belong to me... Here's why:
Look at the name on those adorable envelopes..LINDA.. see they were meant to be mine!
When did they quit making such cute valentines?

Look at this envelope!  A pixie on it! 

Here's one that wasn't used!

Love this one!

Paper doll valentines!  I've never seen these before..

So many!!!

Of course this one is my favorite.. A majorette..like me!

So many of them were signed like this... They just put numbers for letters of the alphabet and you figured out who they were from!  It must have been quite the trend as 1/2 of them were signed like this!

I almost got this little box of goodies for $1.00  I am a sucker for little boxes of goodies!

A Beatles trading card

Tiny little books and a JFK postcard
Some cute little plastic animals

And these 3 beautiful Christmas corsages! 

Right after Christmas I will be scanning the Valentines and uploading them to Flickr so that we can all use them for our Valentine crafting!!  I can't wait to get started!

Hope everyone has a wonderful weekend!

Blessings

Linda

Yippee for you! Yippee for me because you are willing to share for Valentine crafting! You are one lucky lucky lady. $1. That's awesome! How fun that they were held onto and you were able to rescue them. Happy Friday!

I have been enjoying my Aunt Jane's scrapbook full of 1940's valentines for years...isn't it fun to get a big bunch all at once? Thank you for sharing your "Christmas Coffee" memories with me...like you I could almost smell the coffee! It's one of my favorite scents...I don't drink it, but it reminds me of vacations and eating coffee shoppe breakfasts. Sigh!!!

Oh my gosh some of those valentines look very familiar! I think the older ones are so cute. I'm not impressed with the new ones at all. You sure got a lot of fun stuff.
