this is the question that has been going through my mind...........and heart for awhile.
Recently, I have found a couple of new antique stores. Among their many wonderful items, I was able to find boxes of beautiful linens............all worked in cut work.............
from the 1920's to the 1930's.
Each piece is so intricately embroidered and has never been used. The labels are still attached. If you cannot read this......it says 100% linen real hand embroidery made in Portugal.
I found place mats in the settings of 8 and some to 12. Each with a matching table runner.
All corners and sides wonderfully stitched with beautiful designs.
Many of the sets are duplicate in design, which led me to the idea that I could keep a few and sell the rest. I am planning on doing this. I know that Etsy will allow me to sell vintage items as this.........but I am not sure that I want to sell through there are make my own site for these. I know Etsy would probably be the easiest for myself and for my customers. I still have much research to do on the pieces and pricing.............
What do you think? Would you be able to part with such treasures?
How would you sell them if you decided to do so?
I will let you know what I have decided to do and where to locate these linens once I have it all figured out.
Also, I finally did it!! I taught myself to knit and
after purling, knitting, pulling it all out and all over again...............
I finished knitting a dish cloth!!
It's the red one above. The blue dish cloth is one I crocheted.
I love the difference in the look that knitted items have..........don't you?
How about you?
Do you love crochet over knit..........or the other way around?
I would love to hear.
