Post subject:  HOMAGE TO VALENTINE'S DAY AT THE FIVE & DIME, A'LA WOOLWORTH

There are 3 times of year when i miss the old Woolworth's--or any five and dime store for that matter--and those are at Christmas, Valentine's Day and Easter. You can see my recent homage to Woolworth's at Christmas and the National Christmas Center too at www.flickr.com/photos/22283683@N07/albu ... 4029748367

Here's my homage for valentine's Day https://www.flickr.com/photos/22283683@ ... 7784206478

The white tin hearts are vintage candy containers, old stock, from the late 70's; the heart shaped boxes with the nostalgic old greeting card motifs are new and just a few years old--they were less than a dollar fifty---the red ruby goblets are vintage AVON; they're filled with dollar store heart items--bubble wands--and pens. The heart shaped rings on both side of the shelf are dollar store finds as is the big red heart. The postcard is German WWI. The hanging red glass cones are vintage Christmas ornaments from the 50's.The black and white ads are xeroxed copies off my laser printer, the Woolworth sign is a reprint, the perfume bottles are vintage, as are the boy and girl die-cuts and costume jewelry. The cake is a vintage pilllbox
