Red Stripe Linens


Okay, I know I said I would start showing other rooms again but I just had to share my latest finds! I definitely had my treasure hunting fix satisfied today! I stopped at the local charity rummage sale that I always go to and when I first walked in I spotted this antique water bucket!!



 I was beyond excited and continued to make my way through the shop, I always go to specific areas first and the linens were next in my hunt. The linens are in big baskets and you have to pick through them. At first I didn't see anything good but then I spotted a red stripe....



and then I saw that it was this table runner, hand embroidered with red letters!!! I couldn't believe my eyes! I mean I have found some great things at this shop but never anything like this! And so I kept digging and I found another one with red stripes! I couldn't believe it!


I have been looking at red stripe linens on Etsy and Ebay a lot lately but just can't justify the expensive cost of them, not with all that we need to be saving for anyways. But I guess being good paid off because these were 25 cents a piece!


I found a couple more great linen pieces like the one in the bucket pictured below, 100% homespun antique linen, for  25 cents, it doesn't get any better than that for me!








Another thing I was excited to find was this wooden handled bread knife. I have never seen one like this and love its rustic look. I will be listing it along with a bread board in my Etsy shop today or tomorrow.


Earlier in the day I had thought I might take a ride to one of our local antique shops but with all I found at the rummage sale I had no need, I wasn't going to find anything better than I already had:)

    I'll bet that bread knife cuts a uniform slice each time? That's probably something I should invest in ~ lol

  10. Finding (and waiting for) such a great deal makes it worth all the sighs and passed on goods because of cost. :) I hope to have such luck this weekend!

  11. Nice sets you found there (and a great deal of price you just had). This is kinda a dream house that you need to go into detail and you have a good pair of eyes for that. Happy hunting!

  12. Lucky, lucky girl. Love the bucket but the red striped hand embroidered table runners are fabulous. If I were you I'd be doing a happy dance right there in the store.

  17. Hi Megan, I love all your beautiful white and it's always so much fun when you find a treasure at a thrift store. I'm just stopping by to say how delightful your blog is. Thanks so much for sharing. I have recently found your blog and am now following you, and will visit often. Please stop by my blog and perhaps you would like to follow me also. Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Chris

  18. Oh, to be in PA where you can still find things like that. I remember the days I would come home to PA for a visit and bring back a carload of antiques, hooked rugs, baskets, painted pieces! I can't wait to unpack them in my new home. The bread knife is really special, I have never seen one before. The wash bucket is very nice, I really like the price! You have such a good eye. Maybe I missed it when looking through all your posts, but have you featured a bathroom yet? I will definitely need ideas when I start doing my guest farmhouse! Have a wonderful weekend, hope you find my goodies!
