Though not fresh off the easel, our passion for breathing new life into these vintage treasures is unwavering. Today, we're thrilled to unveil our latest creations, many tailored for the upcoming holidays of Halloween, Thanksgiving, and Christmas. For all you early birds who like to plan your card-sending ahead, these designs are primed and waiting!

Over the past year, we introduced our Letter Writing Sets with immense enthusiasm, and their resounding success reinforced the enduring charm of letter writing. Building on this, we're delighted to present our latest additions to the line: delightful fairies illustrated by Cicely Mary Barker and enchanting birds sourced from Victorian scraps. Whether you're an avid letter writer or looking to rekindle the joy of sending handwritten notes, these sets are a must-see!
Speaking of fairies, behold the enchanting arrival of new ones to our catalog! The convergence of Victorian fascination with fairies and the Golden Age of Illustration has gifted us with a profusion of enchanting portrayals to choose from. Within our already diverse collection, we've introduced two more exquisite additions, one by Erich Schutz and another by M. L. Kirk.
Erich Schutz envisioned this whimsical tableau featuring a charming fairy and her equally enchanting flower friends!
Now, let's plunge into the realm of mermaids, those mystical cousins of fairies! Within this captivating realm, you'll encounter a delightful blend of mermaids sourced from storybooks and an unexpectedly abundant selection from vintage magazines. Among these aquatic wonders, we proudly present our newest additions—a creation from the intricate imagination of Edmund Dulac and an intriguing mermaid featured in a 1930s swimsuit advertisement seen below!
This stylish lady from a 1930s swimsuit ad by the R. & W. H. Symington company proves that even mermaids need swimwear!
As spooky season approaches, we can't help but share our excitement! Halloween might not top the charts as a major card-sending holiday, but we're thrilled that many of our customers send these whimsical greetings to the kids in their lives. To ensure smiles all around, we've incorporated a range of super cute (not scary) cards into our Halloween Collection, because there's joy in every little Halloween treat we share!

For those who appreciate the wonderfully peculiar imagery found in Edwardian and Victorian postcards, our Thanksgiving Collection is a treasure trove waiting to be explored! During the late-19th and early-20th centuries, postcards were in vogue, with countless millions sent annually. Holidays were, naturally, a beloved subject, leading to an array of wonderfully weird images. Explore the antics of yesteryear's turkeys and prepare for a visual treat that's as fascinating as it is offbeat—perhaps you’ll be inspired to send Thanksgiving cards this year!

We're especially thrilled to introduce our fresh additions: the Dogs at Christmas and Cats at Christmas boxed sets. Drawing inspiration from the popularity of our pet images in previous years, we're thrilled to offer you even more heartwarming options to spread holiday cheer to all the animal lovers in your life!
