When I think of love as something new……..

MARCH 2024

This delightful card was discovered at the Victoria & Albert Museum and epitomises the romance of gloves. A sentiment that ran through generations of Pinkhams and drove much of the passion for developing the business.

Who ever it was that wrote the lines on this card was certainly a romantic and wouldn't we like to know the outcome.

As far back as the 16th century gloves were a traditional Valentine’s Day gift for women and men would send women gloves. If the lady wore the gloves at Easter it was a sign that she favoured the gentleman’s romantic overtures. Those were the days!!
