15 yards/13 metres of 1950's curtain material, like brand new, laying in a charity shop!!
I have to say they did know it's worth, it wasn't cheap, but nevertheless I bought it and I'm going to sell it as I have nowhere right now to put it and honestly I don't need any more material in my stash. I bought it to sell it cos again as I said it wasn't cheap but I wanted someone to own it who would love it and use it, how often do you find mint condition 1950s curtain material. I nearly hyperventilated right there in the shop, I'm surprised an ambulance wasn't called he he! The colours are so vibrant it was like it was made yesterday! I know too many exclamation marks but come on, how good is this?
Here's another shot
Can you believe material survives with such vibrancy?
Anyway as I said I've put it on ebay straight away otherwise I WILL keep it, and it will sit in my stash for 10 years, like the other 2 sets of curtains I've finally made recently! So if you're interested, and let's face it who wouldn't be, click here. I really want this to go to a great home!
I also picked up some other vintage fabric but these were a steal!
First up 1950s Taffeta type material in lilac shot through with silver and 5.5 metres, honestly how I survived this place I do not know.
This didn't photograph so well but use your imagination!
And then this, amazing vintage subtle tropical pattern material, again loads of it!Oh my!
So I am one very amazed person who is now addicted to charity shops all over again ha ha!
