I love my vintage Valentine postcard collection. Every year I try to find another way to display them.


Check out my blog post to see my sources (online and in real life) to buy these.

This year I displayed my favorite vintage postcards on the same antique frame that I used for my Advent calendar. Which one is your favorite?


I think I found the Bridge Bingo at a flea market.

And I bought these kiss cards through a dealer on Instagram. So I guess my collection is more than just the vintage Valentine postcards... it's more anything vintage Valentine related.

I also have a few postcards clothes-pinned to a string of crocheted yard for a garland on my mantle.

Here’s one of my favorites. Some years I display them as singles on vintage metal frogs. Don’t cha just love those fonts?

One year I used little red and pink clothespins to pin them to a string and hung them as a garland across the fireplace mantle. I've also thought about putting them into an album.


Thanks for reading about my vintage Valentine postcard collection. I'd love to hear if you're a collector, too. Share your display ideas with me... I'm always looking for new ways to share my collection.
