Silly Walks, Drive-Ins, and Woodrow

Greetings vintage fans. Today was a great day in the store, where fans found some interesting images. Here are just a few for your entertainment.

This image reminds me of the "Ministry of Silly Walks" in the Monty Python skits. John Cleese was a scream.  I found the dogs very endearing when Jack discovered this one in an obscure place. We'll show you many variations on this theme when we start posting our Christmas offerings. This week is when we start celebrating Christmas.

We have an amazing U.S. Presidents official portraits collection, and this was an especially beautiful painting a fan found:

We have only one or two drive-ins left in the state of South Carolina. It's really fun to watch a movie at one of them. Here's a postcard one of our fans found in our Americana section. This drive-in was located in Fargo, North Dakota.  

Just one more, and we'll say goodnight. This was especially interesting because of the gold-embossed lettering.

People love this card, and it allows you to completely personalize with your own names, times, messages. You can even change the image if you like. The back of the card is beautiful, too.




This is a very traditional Happy Thanksgiving card that has been a best seller for years. Beautiful!




This is an image that people buy posters and cards for constantly. They usually don't even buy one. They buy in bulk! It always surprises us how much they love it, but we loved it the first time we saw it:
