For many years I have sold Cigarette cards at Collectors Fairs around the country and on ebay. Over a long period of time I found the appeal of a much wider range of aged paper than just cigarette cards. Victorian 1830's-1914 Vintage 1915 -1960
In the late 1990's I started hoarding engraved receipts and billheads from before WW1.These can show the Firm's premises, Medals won or Products that they sell. Later I started keeping the lithographed "Grocer's Bills" from pads sold at nominal cost to drapers, ironmongers, the equivalent of today's Ttill Receipts.
Nowadays I look for decorative and colourful items, Christmas, New Year and Valentine cards, Die cut Scraps, Certificates and Reward cards about Temperance, Empire Days , Sunday,Schools etc I like Victorian Tourism souvenirs, Local Guides, luggage labels, Photos from before WW1, Bookmarks colourful A5 advertising inserts like Sunlight Soap posters and similar issued before WW1 . Any attractive or interesting paper
