Witty Vintage Postcards That Will Win You a Valentine


Are you sick and tired of all the sappy and excruciatingly cheesy stuff pouring from all directions on this so-called day of hearts? I come bringing you none of that; instead, I have here some amusing vintage postcards that will win you a Valentine—if you can still manage to find any of them, that is!

If you’ve been following my posts about vintage postcards, you should already have—like I did when I wrote the first few articles—come to realize that they just don’t make postcards the way they used to. Before, the bad ones can be good, and even those made for occasions like Christmas and Halloween were keepers.

Since Valentine’s Day is just a few hours away, I thought of adding to my roster of featured postcards more of these interesting gems from the past, but none of the usual sappy ones. Instead, to make the occasion bearable, I bring you some witty and clever postcards that could still win you a Valentine—that is, if you can still get your grabby hands on one!
