Vintage School Posters and Cards

I was very lucky to be gifted a couple of boxes of vintage school supplies. These actually came from an estate sale that I attended a while back at the home of a school teacher. I purchased quite a bit at that sale (you can see what I got here) but certainly missed out on these beauties. Again, lucky for me a friend bought these and just recently gifted them to me. I am beyond excited! Here are a few things that were inside the boxes:

These are little booklets, they are dated 1959

Lots of these cards for Letters and Numbers

I think these two are my favorites!

Not sure if this a a border for a bulletin board or what but it is so cute!

These little cards are darling also! I love the doll in the bed!

These cards are just beautiful, loving the V for Violet!

This is a whole set of Alphabet Posters (they are a large size), they are in great condition and in the original box. 

This lady sure took care of her supplies and most have been a wonderful teacher. 
These vintage goodies just make me smile!
