These three little dears seem to be trying to sneak a peak at Santa when he arrives.

During the early 20th century, postcards were a most popular method of communication, with just enough room to write a little note to a friend, family member, lover or neighbor - and they were less expensive to mail. Believe it or not, as late as the 1950s, there was a different postage price for postcards, cards or letters that were tucked rather than sealed and items with sealed envelopes!

Card such as this one were so popular that millions of cards crossed through the mails.

Reproduced from an original postcard, this delightful note card features three darling children with candles have just placed their stockings - "hung by the chimney with care, in hopes that St. Nicholas soon would be there."

The inside reads:

Happy holidays.

On the front, it reads:

Hearty Christmas Greetings

Such an old-timey message that is still appropriate for today.

On the back of the card is the reproduced image of the message on the original postcard (see our second photo). It was sent from New Haven, Connecticut in 1914 and is addressed to:

Miss Mabel Donnelly
New Haven

The message read:
Hello Mable
I wish you a
Merry Christmas
and a happy
New Year
Frank Irwin
This, to us, is great news...that you can still find vintage postcards like this for a bargain...just keep looking.

This modern reproduction greeting card measures 5 inches by 7 inches and arrives with an appropriate white envelope.
