My Favourite Vintage Homewear Find
Last month I made my favourite ever homewear find - a pair of gorgeous 1950s barkcloth curtains. I spotted them in the vintage section of a charity shop in town, and knew immediately that they had to be mine. A bargain at £14.99.
They are in excellent condition, and after a wash to freshen them up, I put on a new curtain tape and let down the generous hem to make them the right length to use as floor-to-ceiling curtains in the bedroom.
Here's a close up of the pattern:
I would have loved to have used them in the living room but sadly they were a bit narrow. There's no maker or pattern name on them which is a shame, as I love to find out more about the things I buy. Nevertheless, I am utterly delighted with my find.
Have you made any good finds recently?
