Vintage linens for my collection.

One of the members at the Embroiderers Guild is an opshop volunteer, and keeps me informed of any nice linens that arrive in the shop. She left these at the Guild for me last week and I collected them on Tuesday while I was on duty. I won't disclose here how much I am paying for them, but I can assure you I was very happy to pay the price!


While I was at that end of town, I dropped into the nearby opshop and found this exquisite little suppercloth for $10!

Some more lovely pieces to add to your collection

Great finds for your collection. I think you probably need a separate house by now to store them all! ;-)

Great additions to your collection

Oh Annie, if only you knew...I have this dream of winning a lottery and buying an empty warehouse somewhere, to store and display all my linens permanently. But it's only a dream and until then they are all in one smallish bedroom in our home. In cupboards, chest of drawers, boxes, bags...

Hi. Saw your blog at Damaria's blog, and now see these beautiful linens. They remind me so much of an aunt's collection and bring back memories.
