I love all things vintage and upcycling vintage linen is my way of perpetuating my own family history and keeping the history of handcrafting alive.

I started my shop after being laid off due to the 2020 Pandemic. It started as a sort of therapy for me, selecting lots of hankies and doilies online that I could clean and repair if needed and then resell online. I love the instant gratification I get when I clean a new batch of linen and turn gray and beige items snow white and fresh smelling again. I enjoy ironing the linens making them as crisp and perfect as I can as well as stretching the doilies with pins so that every single circle is perfect and every pointed edge pointy.

When I come across a design or unique item that I am particularly fond of I will trace the design and then make it into digital art that I can then add to my design portfolio and sometimes sell online as digital downloads in my other shop RachelLeistDesigns.

The handkerchiefs and doilies are so varied and so unique and I enjoy bringing them to life again as a linen for sale and as inspiration for drawings and other artwork.

Thank you for reading my story and supporting my shops and my artwork.
