Markets such as the ICA Shows are a great resource for vintage linens. Go ahead and pull them out and unfold them so you can really see the pattern and any wear and tear. Don’t let small stains discourage you from buying. Take them to your local cleaners for spot removal. If all else fails, get creative! That tablecloth could become a table runner.
Look out for Judith Greason in Tent 2 for vintage chenille coverlets at affordable prices.
