Old-school 100% cotton percale flat sheet, exactly as described. Wonderful to use on the bed in warmer weather--breathes and keeps you cool, but doesn't wilt and go wrinkly like cheap-quality cotton. Seller shipped fast and packaged the item securely; very smooth transaction, thanks!

Ironing vintage linens tonight...the last step in restoring them to their original beauty

About

I LOVE the thrill of the hunt!

I love to rummage through estate sales, yard sales, garage sales & auctions...any kind of sale, really...hunting for fabulous vintage treasures to share with YOU! When my grandmother died, I was given a set of very old bed linens that I had never seen before. She kept them locked away in her chest, and had never EVER used them! What a shame! They were absolutely stunning with the detailed cut and drawn work, and I never knew such vintage beauty existed. So you could say, my passion for vintage started with linens and when I rediscovered vintage chenille bedspreads, I was in heaven. There's something so nostalgic with those...they are beautiful & the workmanship is nothing like you see today. And the hand-embroidered pillowcases, and tea towels, and the mid-century printed cotton tablecloths, and...well I could go on and on...I love them all. They all tell such a lovely story really of an era gone by.

So, while scouring auctions, estate sales and yard sales for linens, my interests gradually expanded to almost all things vintage. I can peruse a sale for hours and get totally lost in the experience.

So many of the treasures I find remind me of my childhood, my mother and my grandmother. They bring such a delight to me, and I hope I can offer something to you that gives you the same warm fuzzies.

My two sisters and one of my daughters have acquired my love for all things vintage. All four of us are often times together on our weekend hunts, which makes for some friendly family competition to acquire the prized vintage items. Please take a minute and visit their shops. I don't think you'll be disappointed!
