We have been cleaning out my Great Aunt's house and we came across alot of old greeting cards. (unused) Does anybody collect them? Are they of any value? Some look very old. My Aunt is 90 Yrs Old and she lived there with my Great Grandmother. The house never got cleaned out in over 50yrs.

If you are taking things to a thrift store or are doing a sale of any kind, I bet they would sell. My daughter and her friend buy old ones and use them now (they are both history geeks)!!

I buy the old ones at thrift stores. I think they have personality!

I love them. I especially love the ones that are written on.
During the holidays I display them and it's really nostalgic.

I don't collect them, but if I happen to find some that I like at a resale shop or yard sale, I'll buy them and use them.

Check out ebay and see what they are worth. I would scan them to my computer then print them onto fabric and put them into a quilt :idea:
