More Pairs of Vintage Dog Playing Cards

I've had so much fun with vintage dog playing cards this week!   These cards are among my favorite things to list.   Dogs and ephemera together -- a perfect combination!    Here are a few more pairs of vintage dog cards from Birdhouse Books.

Jack Russell Terrier dogs popping up from a crate labeled Special Handling:

West Highland Terrier dog and doghouse - 1930's to 1940's vintage, especially nice:

Dachshund dog - three views - really nice:

1960's vintage Terrier dog illustration - would look great framed!

Again, all these cards and many more are at Birdhouse Books on eBay.

Vintage Playing Cards in Pairs

Hi eBay friends!

I'm starting to list pairs of vintage playing cards.   These are sets of two cards that go together.   They look especially nice framed together ... I like them in a single frame.   Just wanted to share a few photos with you!   You will find more here:  pairs of vintage playing cards at Birdhouse Books.

Dalmatian dog puppies carrying flower pots:

Cute Terrier mix dog in a Tam O'Shanter hat:

Folk art of hot air balloons over a town:

Especially nice 1930's vintage cards of a romantic couple on a ship:

Vintage Ribbons from the County Fair

I'm playing favorites here - because these vintage ribbons awarded at county fairs and state fairs back in the 1960's and 1970's are my favorite listings from recent days!  They are so much fun, and remind me of my days in 4-H, and visits to the state fair.   I especially love the ones with pictures of animals, and the unusual ones, like the award for Best Udder.   I've just started with listing these ribbins and have MANY more to add to my store in the next week. You'll find them here:  vintage ribbons from the fair at Birdhouse Books.
