On Wednesday, Mickey and I went to an auction and got our hands on a TON of vintage linens! I was excited because they are just so hard to find anymore. Yesterday I washed, starched and pressed a total of 66 vintage hankies.....they are all available at my booth now ranging in price from .25 cents to $5 each. Here is a photo of them all piled up waiting to be laundered.....
These are all the colorful ones. I have two drying racks currently loaded with all the white and cream ones. Hoping to get them all ironed and ready to go tomorrow!
Today I worked on this stack of vintage cuties.....
I have them all sorted and priced and plan to drop them off at the mall tomorrow. In the meantime, I thought a little sneak peak might be nice!
A few of them are in mint condition and appear to have never been used. But many of them show their history and wear with stains and discolorations. The prices reflect their condition.
I'm on the fence about the poodle one......it's definitely funky, but maybe a little creepy too. I love the bones wrapped in bows, but those doggy eyes are just a little too intense!!
These last two are quite unique with their fun little images.....
The prices range anywhere from $2 up to $8 a piece. Again, I'll drop them off at the mall tomorrow, Booth C004
Aren't they fun? Vintage linens are an affordable way to add that little touch of vintage whimsy to your kitchen, bath, or laundry room. They are also a very fun thing to collect! Some of these make me want to start a new collection, but I think I'll stick with my collection obsession with vintage pillowcases!!
Any questions, send me a comment or email!
