Happy Valentines/Valentino Day

This is a wonderful Valentine's card from the 1920's. It depicts a girl with a tissue saying, "I don't want a Valentine, I want a Valentino!" This was a very smart marketing technique for the card company that produced these. These are fairly sought after and are not too commonly found. This is another great example of one of those random items that you simply have to have for the collection. Happy Valentine's Day!


  1. I would love to have this for Valentine's Day, which is coming up!

  2. I would as well! They still show up on eBay from time to time.
