Vintage Tea Towels


A couple of weeks ago, hubby and I took a drive to Henrietta, NY to check out some of the thrift stores out that way.  I really like AmVets and Savers, since we don’t have those in the Syracuse area.

For some reason, the vintage linens I have in our booth at the Port City Co-op haven’t sold very well for me.  I thought that my prices were reasonable, but maybe table clothes and napkins just aren’t a popular seller in my area. For that reason, I haven’t really been looking at linens at thrift stores and estate sales, but since we were a long way from home, I figured I should look at everything, because you just never know what you might find.

At Savers, I found three brand new tea towels that ranged in price from $.79 – $.99 each.  They were so colorful and fun, I just had to buy them.  I’ve marked them for the shop, but honestly, I really want to keep them as the colors go well with the color scheme of my kitchen and dining area.  I guess if they don’t sell, I’ll just bring them home and enjoy them.


I believe this towel is Austrian and has the sweetest little bouquet of flowers in one color.  I’m going to try and sell it for $3.


I really love the colors and styling of this Pennsylvania Dutch linen tea towel.  Prices range wildly on eBay from $1 up to $15.  I am going to ask $6 for it since it is brand new.


Just look at those sweet faces!  Aren’t they cute?


This final linen tea towel was made in Poland.  I just love the avocado green color and the vibrant colors of the vegetables.  And the fabric is so silky smooth.
