Ebay is your connection to linens, laces and textiles of yesteryear! The most amazing antique pieces such as tablecloths, bedding, laces and trims and other textile treasures are at your fingertips!
In a world where everything is disposable, stepping back time in by finding the perfect antique linen for your home~ a piece that is decades old~ a timeless treasure, is such a joy!
Many antique linens, laces and other textiles were hand made with love and pride, and were an integral part of a womans contribution to the home and family~ whether it was a quilt to provide warmth, or a sampler or tablecloth. Textiles of the 19th century and early 20th century were an important part of entertaining, showing warmth and "welcome" and a measure of class and status.
Today they are a wonderful and affordable way to bring a special warmth and charm to your home~ whether your decor is Victorian, French Cottage, Chic, Retro or Ecclectic!
Add an elegant old linen to the most mundane piece of furniture and it is transformed into a "show piece"! From boudior to bath~ dining room, kitchen or anywhere in your home, an antique linen is the perfect touch!
