Vintage Valentines


 









I love old candy boxes.
I found these beauties last year at a local flea market.
They are so pretty and very special.  Both are dated 1909.
They are beautifully decorated on the outside with old millinery flowers but what's so special about them is what's on the inside.  They are hand decorated with crepe paper and 1909 Valentines.  What a wonderful find.

Have a wonderful day!

What an amazing find. I can't believe what good shape they are in. I have some vintage items also.

Been a very long time since I had a box of candy.

So much detail on the inside of the box. Someone spent a lot of time forming all those pleats -- what treasures! Happy Valentine's Day.
