Valentine’s Day

Any day of the year is a good day to let the ones you love know you love them. This should be a daily occurrence not just on Feb 14th. While some people believe the theory that Valentine’s was just made up by Hallmark to make some money, Valentine’s was around a lot longer than Hallmark. Hallmark started in 1910 in Kansas City. Valentine’s as we know it with little cards, flowers and sweets is more of a Victorian 1800’s creation to celebrate both love and the saint’s day of St Valentine.

Recently, a customer sent me a photo of a vintage wedding dress I had sold her back in 2009. She bought it for her sister’s wedding and it turned out beautifully. It is always interesting to see people in my vintage items. They add such life and style to the retro fashions.
