A few more vintage finds in my Etsy shop

I've been continuing to list vintage items in my Etsy shop, A New Hampshire Attic, and thought I would share just a few more with my readers today.  The "Vintage Christmas" section is the largest section in my shop, with 78 items as of  this writing, and of course many Christmas items have previously sold.  Enjoy the tour of a few vintage treasures!

The card at top is a used card, from the 1940s, but isn't it lovely?

This unusual card is unused.  I believe it's from the 1920s.

Love the shades of green in this one.

I believe these kittens are a Marjorie Cooper design.  No one does kittens quite like she did!

The little scenes in this card are amazing.  I think they really deserve their own post.  I'll maybe do one in July.

These digest size Ideals magazines were a popular gift.

They even came with their own mailing envelopes.

Love this train card!

 Well, I guess that was more than a "few" items, wasn't it?  I'm starting to think about my Christmas in July posts, so this has been a good springboard for me.  Hope you all have enjoyed it, too!


  1. My favorite is the train quickly followed by all those sweet scenes of Christmas domesticity. Your tenacity with this project inspires me. I kid you not, I cleaned out piles of paper today...nothing that could be sold, but things that needed my attention and a decision about staying or going.

  2. I am dealing with reams of paper too -- not just all of these vintage items, which I still have bags and bags to go through-- but a particularly messy spot in my kitchen where I store recipes on cards and those I have printed from the internet. Those full size sheets of paper I tend to fold in half and stuff into the tin container where the recipe cards are. I finally decided to get a huge binder and move all of those full size papers into it. I've been working on it the past couple days and have made some pretty good progress.

  3. I so enjoyed your vintage cards, my favorite is the family scenes, but all are superb..
