Happy valentine's day from 1959!
I found this pretty heart shaped candy box at the flea market a couple of weeks ago.
Can you believe I had it in my hand and then set it back down!!!
I expected it would be costly and it has a faint stain in the upper right corner.
I walked away!
I walked past the booth again, still there, back again a third time (about 3 hours later) to tell the woman I would be driving in soon to pick up my other 2 items, I walked over to the heart and finally asked the price.
What ever was I thinking! I handed her a 5 dollar bill immediately.
She had a few more but this was the oldest and the prettiest.
I especially like that the original recipient wrote the date that she received it on the back, makes it even more special.
And now I don't even notice the faint stain!
Happy Valentine's Day!
