and came out with $7 worth of goodies. I found 2 really nice, heavy sweatshirts (been needing some sweatshirts for around home), 1 white, 1 grey and 2 tablecloths. 1 is white linen with a few yellowish stains and 1 is a card table sized with fall colors and flowers on it. Both are in pretty good shape but the small one is a bit faded but will look nice starched. I just lurve vintage linens. I really can't resist when I see a nice tablecloth for so cheap (1.49 ea.). Gonna do the Biz stain removal soak overnight in the washer on them to see if the stains will come out. Fingers crossed.

Lisa,

Do you do a combination of Biz and Oxyclean to remove stains? I've got a couple of vintage tableclothes that have some spots I'd love to try and remove. I've used Spray n Wash but that's it. I'm willing to try anything at this point so I can use them!

I lurve old tablecloths too. But, what do you do with them when they're the wrong size or shape for your table?
If they are the wrong size, as in smaller, you can put it at an angle so part of the table shows through. Does that make sense?

Or you can layer two tablecloths. Put one on normally and then angle the 2nd one on top.

I have a slight linen addiction. :wave: :whirly:

I can usually 'eyeball' pretty close to how they'll fit my table. Also I use them for wedding and baby showers so it's nice to have a variety of sizes and shapes on hand. You can also use them as a valance for a window or layers them on the table to make a nice table covering in a shabby chic style.

I ihave a few old linens laying around, I used one for a valance in the bathroom, we have privacy film over the windows. I am starting to think I need to change it, but I love using old linens in this fashion.
