Vintage Ephemera Friday #004

Ephemera is defined as something that is not meant to last long– often paper goods. I find myself picking up matchbook covers, postcards, and old magazines at estate sales, flea markets, etc. I know that there are plenty others who dig this stuff too so I’ve decided to post a new piece every Friday as a series, “Vintage Ephemera Friday,” or #VEF on IG.
I encourage anyone else who reads this to also post cool old ephemeral goods (old papers, pins, magnets, pretty much all advertisement goods, whatever you like!) and post it with both “#VintageEphemeraFriday” and “#VEF” tags so in the future others can search through the collective finds.

For my fourth post, I have this small collection of vintage Wedding Shower cards. I don’t remember where I got these, I’m sure an estate sale. I just love all the graphics!

These are small cards like you see with bouquets and the bride saved them all! The bride illustration is my favorite.

The best part, she wrote down what the person gifted her on the back of the card! I know it’s common to keep a list when opening presents, but it’s neat to see a list from over 50 years ago.

Please feel free to join in and post your vintage ephemera finds here or on IG on Fridays! #vintageephemerafriday #vef
