  1. I am pretty clueless as to how to use this site and have asked you to notify me!!! I have 3 Vintage die-cut Germany stand-up valentines in pretty good condition that I would like to sell! Want NOTHING to do with eBay for such a small quantity of them. Will gladly post pictures once you tell me how/where. Thanks, Suzanne

  2. Hello Suzanne,

    The comments here are heavily moderated because we get such an overwhelming amount of spam posted. It does make commenting here a bit convoluted, unfortunately. If you look up our facebook page ( you can post images of valentines for me to look at there. Best Regards, Jolene
