issue is devoted to the master purveyor of Valentines, Eugene Rimmel.
Welcome to the online home of the National Valentine Collectors Association. It will become a source for updated information and images, links to other pertinent websites, and a supplement to the Newsletter.
Now in its thirty-seventh year, the purpose of the organization has always been to preserve and communicate the history of this beautiful material, and enable collectors to meet people who share their passionate interest. We encourage the enjoyment of all forms of Valentines, from antique and vintage, to all modern varieties, through informative articles, quarterly mail auctions, occasional meetings, and related information.
In addition to the love and romance incorporated within this subject, it is a great resource for students of art and social history. We invite inquiries, and are happy to provide interviews, articles, exhibitions, and program speakers.
Dues are now $20 per year, and $25 outside the USA, payable by the end of February; PayPal is accepted.
