…which is a good thing as all the linens I bought and blogged about at the beginning of January have now sold.
I try very hard to source linens that are in exceptionally good condition – I rarely buy pieces that have to be apologised for. To me, a linen sheet needs to be strong and sturdy so that it can be used for its intended purpose for a good few years. Much of what I sell will be used for curtains, upholstery or loose covers so it does really need to be “as new”. It is not easy to keep the standard up but I know that as long as I can, things will always sell fast.
The people I buy from have known me for many years and know what I’m looking for. I am very lucky that they keep pieces to one side for me and when I arrive in France emails fly back and forth as I plan my buying sorties. I’ve just had an email from one Madame which starts “j’ai un panier” (I have a basket) which is her way of telling me there’s a basket of linen waiting for me to sort through. I love it when her emails arrive and I’m sure I’ll never loose that little buzz of excitement as I imagine the possibilities that panier might hold!
So, what was the point of this blog? Oh yes, new monograms and new stock!
I now have on sheets: MG, AG, GL, MR, ML, GM x 3, SP, MC, NF, MR
Set of 12 damask napkins with LM monograms, pair of napkins with MM monos
Square pillowcases with EC or G, FL and LF
I’m still sorting through things and there’ll be more photos soon. I also have five striped tickings and a lovely pile of red striped linen tea towels.
But for now I have to get back to tiling the hallway floor!
