MORE FLEA MARKET






Here are pics of more of the 3 bags from the flea market. I have spent all week washing all of this and am glad that it is all done. I don't think I even have pics of all of it. The white work cloth is a beauty and came out clean after soaking. I am envious of all the work on it. It is done on a fabric that is almost a fine weave mesh type cloth that I am unfamiliar with. The tablecloth is a beauty but has one or two very tiny holes in it. The white cloth I have showed the corner of and then the whole cloth laid out on the table is gorgeous. these pieces are almost too good to cut up but then what would I do with them. At least they are not rotting in an old bin anymore. They are being lovingly handled.

The cloth at the top of this post is very similar to one I bought this week. I love the soft meuted shades of the threads. Lovely!

Very nice finds! Out of curiosity - you mentioned soaking them...what do you soak them in?

Wow, what a haul. It is amazing how you can get things like this clean if you use the right stuff. I've often had white work given to me with rust and other stains all over it, with the comment "You can't want this - you will never get those stains out!" I just smile and say "watch me"...
