Antique Linens & Textiles
Discover the beauty of delicate antique lace and use it to trim tablecloths, clothing, and curtains. Vintage crochet collars and cuffs smartly finish a period costume or modern dress. Or place a Victorian-era doily on your table or mantel to provide a proper resting place for a treasured heirloom.
Adorn couch cushions or bedroom furniture with unique pillows made prior to 1930. Some feature intricate needlepoint, while others are quilted, embroidered, or made of available materials such as hemp grain sacks. Add a hand-stitched quilt, patiently crafted to create one-of-a-kind designs full of colour, charm, and even some history.
Vintage tapestries serve as wonderful wall decorations, table runners, or the basis for creating a new pillow or seat cushion. Enjoy antique French tapestry, Celtic designs, Gypsy patterns, and Swedish drapery. For windows, discover 19th-century lace curtains, velvet drapes, and cotton floral patterns.
When you are looking for a country decor charm for your home, vintage feed and flour sacks offer a wealth of possibilities. Fashion one into a throw pillow, frame another with weathered wood, create a table runner, or simply tack one on the wall for an instant tone setter and conversation starter. Similarly, samplers offer charm and often inspire or teach a lesson with pointed messages stitched within. Hang one on the wall or create an accessory for rustic appeal.
Additional linens and textiles from pre-1930 include handkerchiefs, a wide assortment of fabrics, fascinating clothing, yard, thread, and more. Enjoy discovering the possibilities of bringing a little bit of the past into your home.
