Collecting Vintage Greeting Cards, Hallmark and other retro Cards for Birthdays, New Baby, and Holidays
Collecting Greeting Cards begins with fascination :)
I stumbled across a collection of baby boy greeting cards from the late 1950s and I was so fascinated by them, that I thought here at Squidoo might just be a good place to share them. Enjoy the pictures :)
If you are looking to buy some old greeting cards to add to your collection, or to make a scrapbook with, then I hope you will find some interesting ones on this page.
