Vintage Thingies Thursday - Smiley Faces



This postcard has an undivided back and was published by The Metropolitan News Co., Boston. The hearts may indicate that it is a Valentine, though I had it filed with my general comics.

vintage potholder faces

These potholders are ones I found online a few weeks ago. They represent a new direction for my potholder collection. I like thingies with faces, and I also want to collect some potholders with appliques or pieces of vintage print material. I was lucky to get three at a time, all of which are in like new condition.

  2. Your potholders are very unique. At least they should put a smile on your face if you use them.
