These two sweet little vintage valentines from the early 1950s have those little fuzzy velvet-like flocked highlights. The little red haired boy's hair and the visible sides of his candy box are covered with it, and little girl’s comb and mantilla and the top edge of her fan are covered with it. And aren’t both of these children winsome, how could anyone resist being their valentine? Each comes with its little envelope, addressed in pencil and, since they are addressed to two different children and signed by only one, I assume that they were never delivered. Sort of sad. They are 4.5 inches high and 3 inches wide. Both are still bright and vibrant with no loss of fuzz. Perfect for the collector, or for scrapbooking or any sort of paper art.
Because I ship from the West Coast anything too heavy for first class has to be priced as a parcel, which means that it has to be priced for coast-to-coat. If you live closer than coast-to-coast actual shipping will be less. I do try to price shipping correctly although I sometimes overestimate the weight of a box. If you end up paying more than $1.00 over actual shipping I will credit your account for the difference as soon as put your package into the mail.
I will ship internationally. If you don't see your country listed, please convo me and will gladly provide a shipping quote for your location.
If an item comes back to me marked as unclaimed for any reason, The item will be relisted without refund unless you as a buyer contact me, asking for the item to be reshipped at your own expense.
I will ship worldwide - please see the shipping quotes in our listings, or contact me if your location is not listed.
International orders that weigh 4 pounds or less (when packaged) are shipped via USPS International First Class Mail (typically 6-21 days in transit).
Items that weigh more than 4 pounds will be packaged and shipped as economically as possible. If you would like Priority Shipping (almost certainly more expensive unless the item is very heavy, but with 6-10 day delivery) please contact me and let me know.
PLEASE NOTE that any custom fees, duties (tariffs), or taxes that may be charged by your government are the sole responsibility of the buyer. Because every country has different fees, these charges are NOT included in the shipping charges in our listings. Please contact your local customs office to determine what these fees will be before making your purchase. You may also check http://www.dutycalculator.com/ to determine any additional fees. I comply with all laws when shipping merchandise and make the proper declarations. When merchandise reaches its destination it is subject to that locale's regulations.
Reserve Policy: I will usually be happy to reserve an item for you for up to two weeks.
For purchases sent to a California address I will collect and remit California Sales Tax.
Returns & exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Additional return information
If an item arrives at your home broken you must let me know within 2 days in order for me to file a claim with the shipper. I ask that you send me a photograph of the item and its box. I will refund your full purchase price and shipping if an item is broken in transit.
EU buyers have the right to return products (not food or custom made products) by contacting the seller within 14 days. This 14-day period will start the moment a customer receives a product, rather than at the time he or she purchases it. I am required to issue a refund within 14 days of receiving the returned item or evidence that the item has been shipped back. So if you must return an item please contact me immediately.
When I have shipped an item on time but there is a delay in USPS delivery I can neither foresee nor be responsible for their problems, consequently I can't issue a refund while the package is in the USPS system. When the USPS tells me that they will not deliver your package through some fault of theirs I will issue a refund.
If the USPS indicates that a package has been delivered to the address you provided at the time of your order, I can not issue a refund.
