Old Gypsy Fortune Telling Cards

I found this deck of fortune telling cards the other day in one of my favorite antique shops.  From a little sleuthing they seem to be from 1940, made by Whitman Publishing Co. and printed in the U.S.A. They originally sold for just 19 cents! I paid twenty dollars at the antique shop, but I’m not complaining, I love them.

For an explanation of the meaning of the cards, Neosfortune  has all the interpretations.

As with many of the images on this blog, if you click on the image you will be directed to my Etsy shop where these cards (and more!) are for sale in a high resolution printable format. DIY  fortune telling cards!

About redbudart

I live in the beautiful Pacific Northwest, just outside of Portland, Oregon. My usual interests are cooking, wine, horticulture, art, and old books, but lately I've been obsessed with saving for a piece of land, so I can practice sustainability and learn to live as close to the land as possible, and then help others to do the same. To relax I listen to Dharma talks. Namaste!
