The two best-known classical pieces for weddings. I’ve seen some nice keepsake gifts made from old sheet music like this.

This vintage 1960s Tuco JFK puzzle is missing a few of its “tripl-thick” pieces, which seems to make it even more poignant. I think it’s just waiting for some artist to repurpose it.

I can picture this Decoware 1950s tin litho breadbox with the lid open, displaying a collection of folded 1950s tablecloths. What would you do with it?

This vintage early 1950s chalkware wedding cake topper floats in a cloud of tulle and silk flowers. It was made by Coast Novelty and would make an excellent “something old” for your wedding: on top of the cake or to decorate a table.

1918 patriotic sheet music, “Old Glory Goes Marching On.” The flag in the photo is actually made up of thousands of naval trainees.

Sheet music for “America, I Love You,” from the 1940 film “Tin Pan Alley.” Nice decoration for the Fourth of July! And it has some great clip art inside and on the back.
