I specialize in beautiful linens for your table and kitchen. It's my goal that no one ever uses uninspired paper napkins or tablecloths in their homes--it's not only wasteful but so boring! When I come across other high-quality vintage treasures, I add them here, too, but the focus will always be on textiles!

The initials embroidered on this linen bag are my daughter-in-laws. Guess who will be receiving a very special personalized gift?

Thanks for wrapping these vintage linens so well! I am making the rest of the silverware storage bags to match the Tablespoon linen. The other linen bag has my daughter-in-law's initials, so guess who will receive a gift?!

About

Sharing What I Love With You!

My shop reflects my lifelong love of vintage treasures, especially linens. I'd like to give you an idea of how and why I offer my items to you!

I grew up on a farm and learned to embroider really early. I went to grad school in central Pennsylvania (Go State!) and was introduced to Amish auctions and flea markets, with tons of wonderful vintage items. The linen items really spoke to me, maybe because I knew how much time and love went into making them. And they were being sold for so little. I couldn't let them sit there, unloved.

So, for 35 years, I've been bringing linens home, cleaning them up and using them. When I retired from my work as a college professor and administrator and my husband and I prepared to move the contents of two houses into one, I came face-to-face with this vast linen collection!

Since I found Etsy, I've thought of my vintage role as a kind of Humane Society for vintage linens. I've been finding great homes for previously unwanted, under-appreciated treasures. It's heartening to see how many of you still recognize and value the quality and class of these items--it's just a matter of getting them into the right hands!

So, I spend my days immersed in activities that I enjoy--hunting treasures at garage sales, bringing sad and wrinkled linens back to their glory, experimenting in the kitchen. My senses are engaged--the feel of crisp linen, the heat of the iron, the beauty of hand embroidery. And I get to share it all with you! Thanks for taking the time to learn more about me and my shop!

    I've never met a craft or vintage item I didn't like! I've been dabbling all my life, working around my "day job" of college prof. I retired and now I haunt estate sales, I weave and make quilts, and I work in the jewelry studio. Kerry Can!

I live where it’s nice and cool now. If you live where it’s still nice and hot, I cannot guarantee that your product will not melt. This does not mean that it’s inedible—put the chocolate into the refrigerator to let it cool down and firm up.

Refunds will be given within a 7 day period from the date of delivery. Item must be returned to me before refund can be given. Please notify me if you will be requesting a refund before sending the item back. Shipping for returning the item is at the buyer's cost.

For candy items:
Due to the perishable nature of the product, exchanges are not allowed. I love this candy and want you to love it, too. If there’s a problem of any sort, please let me know immediately so I can try to find a fair and reasonable way to satisfy you.
Additional policies and FAQs
Regarding Vintage Items: I launder and press my vintage fabrics, if needed and appropriate to the fabric. If I have reason not to launder, it will be clearly stated in the listing. I will point out any flaws that I find, in the item descriptions. Please keep in mind, though, that these items are vintage and we love them, in part, because they show their age and have that patina. I feel that beauty is enhanced by the fact that they have been used and loved and they don't look brand new.

I welcome your questions and comments!
