There is something so adorable about a classic vintage Valentine's Day card. They can be sentimental, sweet and sometimes silly. But times have changed. These days the store bought cards are more likely to have Dora the Explorer, Spiderman or Justin Bieber on them. Yes, they are sorely lacking the style and substance of the days of yore.
Vintage Valentines included humorous illustrations with popular motifs of cherub-faced children and cute animals with the occasional fork, egg, and mermaid thrown in. From their pitiful puns to their sweet sentiments, take a journey back in time with this collection of vintage Valentines.
