Vintage Stork Postcards

Wow! It's been a while since I've had a post. I've been getting ready for some upcoming shows in September, and the beginning of the Fall postcard show season! Be sure to stop by and see us at the Tuckerton NJ Antiques Show and the popular Garden State Postcard Show in Parsippany NJ (both in September).
I recently stumbled across a handful of postcards at the flea market and began to sort and sleeve them. While going through the lot I noticed a common theme. There were a bunch that all had storks on them!
I would imagine they were quite popular in the day, used to announce a new family arrival! Many have the traditional stork, delivering a baby in some way, shape or form. They range from artistic to comical. I've sold many in the past, often used to make a great vintage gift for the new mom, possibly framed for display in a babys room!
