Beautiful linens at the textile fair.

Last Thursday I was at a fair especially for textiles.
I'd been to the first one in 2011 and loved it so decided this year to take a stand myself.

Part of my stand showing beautiful embroidered sheets.

Since we've been living in France I've been collecting beautiful French linens especially embroidered sheets and pillowcases.

Gradually the collection has grown and also gradually its getting more and more difficult 
to find good pieces.

It really is quite difficult to part with some of these linens but the collection has got a bit too big now.
I was delighted to do well, but even more pleased to talk to others about the linens, the lace curtains etc 
which so many people love.

When I could I went and had a look around and of course wasn't able to resist buying a few things  
I'll show you some in my next post.

These teddies are made by a friend of mine.

This beautiful lace dress was admired by so many - it was lovely to see the smiles on faces, especially of young women who would have looked splendid in it.


  1. Beautiful! I would have loved to visit. There are so many fine linens--and other things--in France :-)

  2. Wow! What a treasure trove!!! My kind of fair!

  3. oh my God, this must have been so wonderful. I love all your treasures. I know how hard it is to part with them. I have boxes and boxes, but can never resist something that catches my fancy.
    I think I would have had to really hang on to my wallet. I would have gone crazy there.
    We used to have vintage clothing and fabric
    sales here, but no longer.
    Bought some things at the fleamarket last Sunday though. I should be selling things, instead of buying, ha ha.
    I wish you a happy week. Hope you still have lots of sunshine!
    It rains here most of the weeks lately. No gardening.
    Sending you hugs,

  4. Oh I would have loved to have been there...French linen sheets and idea of heaven!

    PS Do you ever get linen smocks /shifts?

    1. Hello to you Julie, I can sometimes see shifts/ smocks.
      Let me know what chest size you would want and I'll keep an eye out for you.
      Let me know if there's anything else that you're looking for and I can let you know what I have and how much it would be.
