Welcome to the Vintage Valentine Museum brought to you by Eclectic Salvage! Come peruse our collection of VINTAGE VALENTINES, arranged by category for easy searching.
We've begun to add more information about our valentines and their subjects. What is written gets regularly updated as new information is found or older information is discovered to be incorrect or incomplete. So please recheck listings that are of special interest for any new card images and/or new details that may appear. I have opted to change the actual text rather than add this new information as a separate 'update' as the 'update' style can make the listing rather confusing with contradicting statements. If you have additional info about any of our cards, we really appreciate a comment added to that entry. So, please - let us know. We've created this space to share some of our favorites with you and to spread the LUV!
****We've found many of our images on Facebook, My Space pages, Vox and other blogs and social networking sites. We do appreciate the interest and don't mind but you MUST credit to the VintageValentineMueum.com any of our images you post. A link is a FAB way to do that and very much appreciated.
No commercial use of our photos or text is permitted. Be advised that many of these valentines are not actually old enough to be considered "in the public domain" yet and my photos of these cards are certainly not "in the public domain."
For your personal craft-type use of our images we of course don’t expect you to include credit on your items – please enjoy using them. However in re-blogging our text or images or otherwise re-publishing them on the web or in print, please do not use them if you are unwilling to credit this site for them. It takes a lot of time and effort in pursuing these cards, researching and writing about them, and in taking and preparing photos of them to post.
Please, I appeal to your sense of fair play, be respectful of that time, effort and money spent that the writing and images here represent. It only takes a second to give proper credit for what I have freely shared with you.****
