Vintage Hankerchiefs




Hope everyone had a great weekend. I spent it with some friends and had such a wonderful time. Here's some unused vintage rose hankerchiefs that some lucky person owns. Where can I get my hands on some? I want to sew a whole lot of them together to make a curtain for my daughters bedroom. I guess I will have to rummage around some more garage sales and op shops this week. The things we have to do.........

  5. Those are very beautiful!
    I got a few vintage handkerchiefs on Ebay, I was actually looking for vintage Irish goods, and I was lucky enough to come across the handkerchiefs!
    Good luck with your quest!

  6. I saw beautiful doilies and things like this in a shop in Toowoomba when i was recently visiting. I bought some gorgeous doilies for my home..... Think it was called Canterbury Lace or something similar! Kellie

  7. These handkerchiefs are really sweet.I live in Japan and there's a shop here that sells similiar 'vintage' hankerchiefs except they're new and made in India. The cotton is really lovely and soft.They have an online shop but it would probably be much more expensive than buying actual vintage handkerchiefs. Have a look anyway if you like.

  10. hmmm, you are gonna have to rummage for sure, those boxes on the floor of the op shop's where you'll find em I think - I saw a curtain made from these in Real Living I think and also in one of Emily Chalmers books - looks good and great way to add vintage charm...
