Announcement   We spend as much time as we can in the Summer months out camping in the mountains so shipping might be delayed by a few days. It will always be shipped within the time estimated by Etsy.

New items added almost daily, check back often. We specialize in a wide variety of vintage and antique linens, needlework and textiles. Also listed are items from my personal stash of antiques, collectibles and jewelry that I have been collecting for the past 50 years and some vintage clothing, lingerie, and accessories. I have literally thousands of items to go through and will be listing them as quickly as possible, so please check back often.

All items are guaranteed to be as described or you may return for a full refund.

We are glad to ship the lighter weight items overseas, but anything heavy is just too expensive and too slow so I am limiting some items to North America only. If you do not see an overseas shipping price, that probably means it is too heavy to ship it to you in a timely and reasonable cost way. Convo me if you are unsure.

My combined shipping prices are estimates only. You will never pay more. If I find when I go to do the shipping that you have been overcharged, I will send a refund.

Any questions, please don't hesitate to ask.

About

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

    Owner

    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
