Happy Halloween 2017

Hallowe’en Greetings

Ellen Hattie Clapsaddle (1865-1934) was a well known American illustrator and is remember today for her wonderful drawings featured on postcards. Her holiday sketches featuring children that appeared on both postcards and greeting cards are highly valued by collectors today. Because she was so prolific, many vintage cards are still very affordable (5.00-25.00 per card) for collectors.

I love her drawings – she was so talented.
