Donate to a senior citizens center or a school.

I would suggest that you call your nearest preschool center and ask them if they could use your old greeting cards to make art projects.

This place is about 50 miles from you and the closest place I could find to Dayton to take donations for greeting cards if the other places don't want them. It is in Cincinnati. This time of year most places don't to deal with greeting cards. The need will pick up again in Sept/Oct or when kids and seniors (preschools, nursing homes etc.) are into craft mode.


I like to fill USPS one price boxes with them and sell them on eBay or Etsy. Depending on the volume--# of cards-- and the condition of the cards (if they are ripped, torn or stained, I recycle them but if they are clean--even if they are filled out with pen notes, they still sell. The older cards--30s and 40s or super fancy cards of any year, can fetch up to $100 a box-- especially if there are rarer cards in the lot and it is a large lot (like 100 or more cards).

The lowest I have sold them for is 1.99 plus the cost of shipping (which for a one price box I use the actual price and add a small amount for handling).

I like having the extra money from them and artists love to buy them. The titles I usually use are Paper Ephemera Greeting Card Lot for Scrapbook Collage (if I know the years of the cards, I will add that).


Best wishes for you to find them a good home!
