Pretty New Vintage Linens

Greetings Friends~ ~ ~

Went antiquing last Sunday and found some very nice pieces for very little money. I like to go to Shupps Grove. A lovely place in the woods where vendors set up tables to sell their wares from April till October. I could spend a whole day there. More about this in another post. Today I share my goodies! I made 2 purchases and spent $21 and came home an extremely happy girl!
The lavender and the blue prints are aprons. The blue one with the red flowers I will use for a pattern because I love the style. Never saw one like this before. Hope to get it sewn up this week on one of the rainy days we are expecting. The lavender one I may use for trim for other aprons. Both aprons have holes in them.

7 pretty lace pieces. A few are sort of ragged but thought I would use them for trim on aprons I am making. One long piece will look nice across the back of the sofa.
3 new Irish Linen napkins and 3 monogramed with a C.

A few dish towels.

Assorted other pieces like hankies and pretty yellow yardage that is very sheer.

2 amazing tablecloths, one is white and still had part of the tag glued on and the other is pale pink.
Guess I had a pretty good day. I know I really enjoyed myself. I just had to share because I know you gals just love a great deal. ~ ~Ahrisha~ ~

Good Morning,
I haven’t touched base in awhile, so I thought I’d see if your part of the world is rainy too? Getting ready for the Herb Festival at Landis Valley so I haven’t been visiting the blog world for weeks-feel so out of touch!
I used to go to Shupps pretty frequently with my mom, but as she is now 84 it is a bit much for her anymore. You got some fantastic buys! Have you ever been to any of the Extravaganzas? I have a friend who is a vendor. I have never yet been to one, but am putting it on my “to do” list for this year.
Aren’t you glad Spring is finally here!

Hi Arisha ~ I have a very soft spot for antique linens and fabric too, and just love using them around the house every day.
