FREE Vintage Ephemera Cards


Have you been hitting the flea markets, tag & garage sales over the summer? I haven’t been to as many as I’d hoped but I did find some sweet goods recently at a junk shop nearby. Here are some beautiful cards I’ve just added to my collection of vintage ephemera that I want to share with you- both antique trade cards and small playing cards.CatheHolden_Digital_Ephemera These images are free to use in any of your projects, personal or commercial.

    Cathe, These are perfect for some photos I planned on printing. But I can’t find the place to click to bring up the larger image on the second group. What am I doing wrong? I can pull up the first group.

      Hi Vicki,

      Click on the second image, it will take you to an enlarged version, you may be able to click again for an even larger version from there. Save the image however you typically save images from the internet, such as dragging into a file or “right-clicking” the image for a dialogue box, etc. Let me know if you’re still having issues.

    Whew! I almost lost you! I am referring to the endnote you wrote in the email newsletter for this image. The local workshop news was getting to be a bit much…
    I am glad you are getting back to what I first stumbled upon when I first signed up. Thank You. Blessings from Port Huron, Michigan.

    Thanks for the lovely “Vintage Ephemera” Cards. However, I could not get the “newsletter” bird and tag to print. I am a newsletter subscriber though. What did I do wrong?

    Hi Kathy, thankyou soooo much for these beautiful cards. I appreciate all of your hard work and wished I lived in the states so I could attend your workshops. You have given me so much inspiration and kept my occupied since the death of my beautiful mother who also loved your work. Stay safe and prosper..
