Announcement   My greeting cards are reproductions from Victorian, Edwardian, and other vintage images. I also make prints, bookplates, stickers, fridge magnets, fabric blocks, bookmarks, and more!

The sources for my cards include old postcards, Victorian trade cards, antique books, vintage advertisements, and other ephemera. Our sister store, KatyDids Fabrics, is devoted to 100 percent cotton fabric blocks made from these same images. And we have a third store, KatyDids Vintage, where we sell original vintage items.

These are so cute! I have been a Kewpie collector for a long time and these will add a special touch to cards!

About

A Thing of Beauty is a Joy Forever...

I started my greeting card business in 2008 (although I've been an ephemera dealer on and off since 1998.) In my shop you'll find greeting cards, prints, bookplates, magnets, bookmarks, and stickers made from vintage images as well as from my own photographs.

The vintage source items I use were collected by my mother and me over the last 40 years. They include postcards, Victorian trade cards, children's books, and other ephemera. Mom always wanted to open a small greeting card store of her own one day, using the images from her antique items. Sadly, she passed away before the tech was good enough to do so.

But now it is, and I am making my mom's dream into a reality with KatyDids Cards (the title comes from her favorite book as a child, "What Katy-Did.")

I'm living my dream, (and my mom's) with this business, and hope you'll find our items and images unique and fun.

If there's anything in particular you'd like to see that you think I might have, Convo me and I'll dig through the boxes to see if I can find it!

And be sure to check out our sister store here on Etsy, KatyDids Fabrics, where you'll find fabric blocks made from the same vintage images I work with here: http://www.etsy.com/shop/KatyDidsFabrics

I also sell vintage items on Etsy here: https://www.etsy.com/shop/KatyDidsVintage

Our home is smoke-free and always has been, but as you can see, we do have pets (in case you have allergies.) Thanks for stopping by.

    I have a BFA in Photography, and have always loved art and books. I live on a farm in northern KY with my family, where we have horses, goats, dogs, cats, chickens, and bees. I love reading, the ocean, birding, old movies, and chocolate in all forms.

    Emotional Support

    J. is great at just being there when I need to take a break to pat a fluffy dog. He helps Z. with security too! No need for doorbells in this house.

  • Z.

    Security

    Z. is the head of the Security department here in our home office. As a fully-grown Great Dane, she keeps the little dogs in line, and checks all the shipments for safety before they leave.

  • M.

    Physical Plant And Landscaping

    M. keeps an eye on everything to do with the shop and environs at all times. He's just so helpful, especially with landscaping (as you can see from his green feet, he was helping Daddy mow.)

  • The Kittens

    Amusement

    The kittens came to us when a friend had a cat who slipped out and got pregnant. Now that they're growing, they provide us with a constant source of amusement. Such mayhem in such little packages!
