Comic Families Luggage Tags




I found this great card game of Comic Families. I don't know how old they are but they look circa 1940's.

The designs were crying out for luggage or bag tags and so that's what they became.

The tags are a print of the cards transferred to fabric and matched up with a retro print back. They have a loop at the top to hang from a bag or from a necklace and come on a small string loop. They also have a retro button accent on the back.

I love to find really cool bits of nostalgia and if it can become part of your art all the better.

I can't believe I'm admitting this, but I remember playing with cards like these when I was a little girl. Shhhh ... don't tell anyone! What delightful luggage tags they make - you are so creative.

Oh my I LOVE these Sharlene! Now Robyn I too remember cards like these and a book with similar characters at the local Co-op in Wauchope NSW in the 60's!

I'm really impressed with all of your hidden talents Sharlene - keep 'em coming!
