Textiles and garage sales
I have enjoyed garage sales, flea markets, antique markets, boot sales for many years. There are many treasures to be found and being a weaver I have always looked at the textiles. My find last week was in the “free” box. A lovely linen Damask and Huck hand towel with painted flowers and hemstitching. There is one tiny hole which looks like a flaw and easily mended as well as a small rust stain probably from storage. It is in very good condition otherwise and is so crisp it seems barely used. I find it sad that someone would throw away a lovely piece like this for two small and easily fixed flaws.
