Welcome to Reusable Art!
Happy New Year!
After an unseasonably warm Christmas, much of America is welcoming the New Year with freezing temperatures. So, why not start the your visit to Reusable Art with a wonderful trade card from 1881 of two young children ice skating?
Now that Christmas is over and you start gathering your family photos together, be sure to visit our vintage images for Christmas to save those memories in your scrapbooks!
It won’t be long before Cupid arrives and thoughts turn to Valentine’s Day. We have Valentine’s Day images and romantic images that might help you convey your feelings to that special someone. Be sure to also check out the flowers, borders and fancy letter images to create your own special Valentine messages.
Free Vintage Images
Reusable Art has a collection of copyright free images chosen for crafters by a crafter. These free vintage drawings, paintings, and illustrations have been rescued from old print materials in the hopes that a new generation of artists and art lovers can enjoy them.
All of the images appearing on this site are copyright free and in the public domain in the United States, in countries that are part of the Berne Convention and any country that grants copyrights to artists up to 70 years after their death or 120 after publication when the artist is unknown. They can be used for anything you wish with no restrictions. (You can read more about this on our About Us page.)
Information is provided with each vintage image to research the copyright status in other countries as well as to honor the artists who created them.
