It's That Time of Year...

...the time of year when Carmen and Ginger can finally - FINALLY - start getting those vintage tablecloths cleaned, out on the line to dry, and into the shop for you!  It's been a long winter here in New England, and a very cold spring.  This can't keep up, however, and we are going to do our darndest to get these in the shop pronto!

Who does not love a great fruit print cloth? No one, that's who!  This one has a few minor spots from storage but is super bright and colorful and a fab print!

I cannot even find one like this in my vintage tablecloth reference books.  If you are a coffee lover, this is the vintage cloth for you!  Great bold design and terrific mid century graphics.

Got a "thing" for Vera?  We've got just the cloths to scratch that itch!  We'll start with this one, a circular linen beauty with these luscious coral roses in a classic Vera design with lots of movement and expression!

And for the hard-core collectors, take a look at this fabulous Lancaster Prints cloth with the original paper tag!  Yup, that's right folks, in the shop within the week.  (Oh, and peeking from behind, just a little old California Hand Prints cloth, that's all...)

Keep watching as we will iron and photograph these this week to have in the shop in a jiffy!


  1. Moving into a house with a clothesline!!! The house was built in 1900 +/- and has the original T-bar iron stands at either end of the garden. Can NOT wait to put things on the line!

  2. Fantastic! I need to keep watching the blog to see photos! This house is in the city so has a short line, my last house had a glorious long line. I used to hang my sheets out in the summer so they'd have that fresh air smell! Ahhhhh....
