I came across a real treasure some weeks ago when I wandered into an antique market in one European town. I met a lady who was selling her grandma's homespun linen.

The grandma spun it herself to sell and make some money for the family.

She saved a trunk full of the best bolts for her daughter's dowry. However, by the time her girl was old enough to get married, homespun linen wasn't in style. So, all of that was passed on to the granddaughter who only now decided to do something about it.

Her grandma spun linen from 1890 to 1930. So, the lady who sold it to me didn't know how old each bolt was. She was confident though that it was at least 80 years old.

After this lady sold me her linen, she mentioned to some of her neighbors in my interest in her linen. So, I am getting phone calls from time to time from some of them asking if I am interested in the linen they have in their hope chests. At times it is just 2-3 yards. Other times it is several bolts. So, I never know what linen will show up on my door steps and when :~). Kind of makes life interesting. Stay tuned for more!

Even though it is antique, it is very sturdy and is in great shape.

Linen in this bolt is about 18" wide and is 1 2\/3 yards long.


I LAUNDERED, LINE DRIED AND IRONED ALL THE FABRIC.

Happy shopping!!

Thanks for stopping by!

Please note: this item is with me in Europe and will be shipped from wherever I happen to be at the time of your purchase. I ship 24-48 hours after I receive your payment.


A word to the wise: it takes about 3-21 business days for my packages to reach their destination in US and Canada as well as other European countries. It takes a little bit longer for Asian countries, New Zealand and Australia. I wish I had control over the speed of package deliveries or the postage cost... but I don't. Thanks for your understanding!

If you require insurance, please be sure to mention this in the notes to seller and wait for a revised invoice from me. (This will add $3 to your shipping cost.) Please note that if you do not choose insurance, I can not be responsible for mail once it leaves my hands at the post office. Of course, I will always be happy to provide you with a scan of my shipping receipt as proof of shipment.

Enjoy!!

Thanks for stopping by!!!
