Anthropomorphic Vintage Valentines

An•thro•po•mor•phic
Adjective: 1) Relating to or characterized
by anthropomorphism
2) Having Human characteristics


Characteristics, or behavior to inanimate objects,
animals, or natural phenomena


I know there is a lot of Vintage Valentines
showing up this time of year, but these
are some of the most sought after.
And if you have one that is unused...
Well all the better.


Some of these can range from $30
to $6 depending on condition and the uniqueness
Keep your eyes out for these collectibles~

I have some of The scanned Images In My Shop

Happy Hunting,

Oh how I wish I could scan those and then pop them in little frames for a wall display. They are simply cute, cute, cute!

Thanks so much for letting us view them. They bring back such great childhood memories.

Some of my favorite, of course! I have a few that are similiar but meant for teachers. I think some sweet teacher kept them in a box and I was blessed to find them in an antique store. I also like to find policeman ... for my brother. Can't wait to see what pretty valentines you come up with!

Morning!

Yes, I love the anthropomorphic characters. They're so cute and innocent. I think the icecream was one of my favorites. : )

I wish they'd start making Valentines like these again. They had so much more personality than Valentines today, which are mostly just TV characters.

Your collection is so cute!! Xoxo,Jenn

If I ever go on 'Who Wants to be a Millionaire', I'll have this valuable information tucked away. :-D
But seriously, these are just precious. : )

I've been "Pinning" vintage Valentines lately and I get a kick out of some of the sayings on them and always think to myself, gee they wouldn't get away with that today, "someone" would be offended and raise a stink! Thanks for sharing, Nan
