Welcome to my Etsy Shop

Here you will find vintage and antique linens, tablecloths, fabric, embroidery and crochet work, tapestries and woven pieces and all things old textile. Find some great linen tea towels for your kitchen, pillowcases for your bedroom, or doilies and runners for almost any room.

I have been a lover of antiques for as long as I can remember, and have been involved in selling antiques and collectibles for about 45 years. Of them all, linens and textiles have always been my particular passion.

I have always loved to do a variety of crafts and needlework, so I am in awe when I look at a fine piece of handmade lace or tapestry and think of the hours and hours of incredible work that went into it.

For many of the years while I was running antique stores and doing shows, I was stashing the best of my linens away, largely because I just wasn't in a hurry to part with them. I jokingly called this my "retirement fund". About 3 1/2 years ago I realized that the time had come to start paring down and parting with them, and so Emelias House of Linens began.

I have named my Etsy shop after my Finnish grandmother who died before I was born, but whose name I proudly carry as my middle name. I have always felt a special bond with her and wish so much I had been able to know her. Besides carrying her name, I discovered from family photos that there was a strong resemblance and so I feel that in more ways than one, I really am Emelia.

I live on the prairies of Southern Alberta most of the year, but in the winter months we head down to the HIll Country of Texas. Business goes on, but I carry a completely separate line of inventory in the winter months which I ship from Texas.

And yes, we do have a lot of fun with this!

Shop members

  • Terry


    I am a lover of antiques, photographer, artist, wife, mother, and so glad to be owned by two dogs.

  • Frodo

    The "REAL BOSS"

    Frodo has a very important role on the team. She inspects my work, encourages, entertains, cleans up any crumbs, tells me when it is time to take a break and go for a walk, and supervises the guard dog.

  • Gandalf

    Head Of Security

    Gandalf is also a very valued member of the team. Years ago, he used to lay on my feet to keep them warm when I was working, but he got too heavy for that, so he has been promoted to head of security. He fiercely guards me against all distractions.

  • Anon.

    Head Of Shipping And Packing

    He who cannot be named
