Die-cut Valentine Postcard May Happiness Be Thine Hearts Girl Fence

By: N/A

Price: $9.95

Publisher: Unknown:

Seller ID: 0134

Condition: Fine


What a beautiful card this is -- more greeting card than postcard, as there is a poem on the back and no stamp box. Beautiful die-cut edges give it a lacy look and the edges of the design, including the hearts, are embossed. There's no date and no evidence of origin, but it's a beauty and was clearly treasured. The poem reads "I send this word to you my love, It will always hold true, As long as you love me, my love, I surely will love you." Could be a Valentine, but could also be a romantic missive any time of year. The message on the front is "May Happiness Be Thine" View more info

Six Blue Vintage Valentines, One is a Stand-up

By: N/A

Price: $14.00

Publisher: circa early 1900's

Seller ID: 0172

Condition: Very good


A cute little clutch of blue Valentines, one of which stands up in great working order. There's a second stand-up one too -- the lacy one with the little girl holding a closed parasol in the lower row to the far right. She is in good condition as well and her mechanism is not torn, but it's lost its "give" and she no longer can stand alone. She measures 3"x5-1/2" while the big one measures 4"x5-1/4". The rest of the cards are printed on paper and open up to display small verses. These are clean and bright and have penciled names on the backs. Altogether a a pretty little set. View more info

This is TOO cute -- and I'm actually a cat person! But who could resist such an adorable puppy, especially one with fuzzy velvety black fur! He's die-cut with a stand at the back that has never been used and has no names or writing (see photo 2).His message says, "I'm Pup-posin' That You're Mine; I Love You. I never Growl or Snarl, It's True -- But I'd Snap at the Chance of Winning You!" At the highest point -- from heart to bottom edge -- the card measures 12" tall and is 9-1/2" wide at the bottom.

Publisher: Chicago, Sears & Roebuck: 1949

Seller ID: 0772

Condition: Very good


A Christmas novelty that has been nicely kept. The ribbon at the top was there when I bought it, but is not original to the toy. It came with nothing in the holes so that a long string can be inserted for Santa to move along on -- of course you can take the ribbon out and do that. The center section reminds me of the lath for plastering walls, only made of cardboard. Its the spaces between the slats which help Santa jump and dance when held by the top of his head. He also folds down to a reasonable size for shipping. Santa is 16" tall when fully extended and 10" across elbow to elbow. Pretty c... View more info

This one's not at all rare because it was too cute not to keep! It still charms collectors though and has even inspired modern look-alikes in the forms of magnets. This guy's the real deal though! He measures 2-1/2" across at the widest point, which is his feet, and 6" from the top of crown to the bottom of his feet. "King Pig" sits up and begs to be part of the "Rex Brand" line of meats packed by the Cudahy Company. Both front and back sides of the card are identical. Inside the text covers the celebrated Rex Brand sugar cured meats,pure leaf lard, Cudahy's sugar cured hams, breakfast bacon, ... View more info

Price: $35.00

Publisher: Dallas, Texas, Mary Kay cosmetics: 1976

Seller ID: 1925

Condition: Very good condition


I thought this 1976 recruitment advertising might be pretty common, but it appears to be just the opposite. It's clever, but in a way seems somewhat against the tide of the Women's Liberation Movement of the 70's. The paper dolls are strung together and folded accordion style. The covers asks "What Kind of Dolls are Choosing Mary Kay Cosmetics as a Career?" Inside (on both sides) it showcases 15 top consultants who collectively earned three-quarters of a million dollars selling make-up. The idea was to show the diversity of the consultants -- club woman, educator, artist, two minister's wives,... View more info

This is a charming paperdoll book with a Japanese flair. There's no date, but the pictures seem to suggest that it comes from the 1940's or 50s. Everything is die-cut, so no scissors necessary. Just pop out the dolls, the clothes, and the accessories and it's time to play. There are four pages filled with items -- I've photographed them all so you can see everything that comes with it. Book measures 7-1/2 x 10-1/2" in beautiful condition. View more info

This is a GREAT art exhibition catalog from its die-cut cover to its unique art. the cover divides down the middle and it opens like double doors. The only faults are a few tiny dots on the front cover, a sticker which covers a blacked out name on the title page, and a tiny discreetly repaired tear to top of spine. Otherwise its pristine and tightly bound. To explain what this concept of independent curator means I turned to the first essay by Sollins and Sundell who wrote, ".. we have chosen to focus on collaborations which are sustained by the existence of a collective persona that has bee...

Condition: Very good condition in good envelope


This is an interesting item, published for a contest which was advertised around the world. In the U.S. the kit was sent via the local newspapers, in this case the Detroit Times. Oddly, there is no year stated, so I did some research and found a 1932 Syracuse, New York newspaper story about the contest. Then envelope had many small tears, so I taped the edges to stabilize it. Inside here is a card about the contest itself, another one with intricate instructions and four large cards with many, many, many pieces to assemble. The sad part is, though not surprising, only boys were allowed to comp... View more info

Condition: Good condition


Joan Walsh Anglund was a huge hit in the 60's and 70's and still has a following today. I have sold several of her sweet little books and have a couple on here at this writing. This, however, is not a book. It's a paper doll with 12 outfits none of which have been cut. The dolls and her clothes are in great shape, the scissors is still there, and so is the stand. The only thing missing is a small tube of glue which would be dried out anyway if were there. The doll is 5" tall. The box itself measures 5-3/4" x 6". There's a few nicks here and there to the box, mostly at the edges, but not too ba... View more info

Tuck published other printings of this little this popular gift book, but this is the GOOD one with the die-cut edges and see-through "lace." It's clean and tightly bound and tied with a green cord with tassels. There is one small piece of the lace missing at the lower front corner of the cover (visible in the photo), a bit of darkening to the upper front corner and a sprinkling of light foxing to back. Pages are pristine throughout and are likewise die-cut. The booklet was given to Miss Clara Smith from Edith Butterworth. Pages are not numbered, but I counted 14 of which three are illustrated...
