Retro Tuesday!

Whoops, this post is up a few minutes late! But I'm here with this week's Retro Tuesday. I thought I would share with you part of my collection of vintage linens!

Vintage linens are one of my favorite things to hunt for.  I can't resist them!  The colors and patterns are always so pretty.  In my experience, thrift stores have the best stock, and the most affordable.  Occasionally though,  I'll find some inexpensive sets in antique stores.
I plan on turning some of these into items for my Etsy shoppe, but some I simply can't part with.  Like the one with the red, blue, and yellow flower, towards the bottom...it's a tablecloth!  I love it too much.
Do you collect vintage linens?  Where's your favorite place to search for them?
xo, A.

I love vintage linens too. I am often hunting around charity shops and other such places for them as the patterns are so lovely :)

I love the middle one!

There is a shop here in London called The Shop where I love to hunt for all my vintage materials, they sell old curtains as well as laces and linens. Old tea towels and aprons too!

Cutting them up is so hard to do though, the fear of ruining them is too great!
