Antiques on display outside @the_fab_pad store in Steveston Village.

During the Georgian and Victorian eras, love tokens became a popular way to express interest in a courtship for the first time.
Later giving way to Valentines many decades beyond, love tokens were often especially made out of fine materials, and would take many forms - this bookmark, for example, is made of incredibly delicate silk and hand embroidered. Other love tokens would include fine, three dimensional cards, paper wallets containing romantic notes and poetry, and mementos stitched into hats and scarves. More extravagant lovers would use coins, charms and medallions with engravings.
Being the sort of objects they are - unique and of personal importance - it's rare to find good examples on sale; this one has survived remarkably for its fragility and provides a wonderful glimpse into forgotten ages of romance.

Edwardian cigarette packet for "Waverley" Straight Cut Virginia Cigarettes by Lambert and Butler of London, C1918

At a time when the cigarette trade was first growing into Imperial Britain, premium cigarettes became a popular stand amongst trendy gentlemen who didn't wish for the more popular pipe or cigar (or, alternately, could not afford them!) Many early cigar packets were particularly handsome and this is by far my favourite that I've come across. Note the display of awards on the rear of the packet - these were a popular bargaining tool to convince a man to part with his cash!

At this time, inhaling a cigarette was yet to become a standard - they were purer, unacidic and stronger, and would have been quite difficult to take onto the lungs.
