POINTS OF INTEREST:
I have traveled for many years to all parts of france.
My collection of antique & vintage textiles have become rather large.
I have recently made a tough desicion to now down size my collection & release space in my linen cupboard for my most used textiles.
many of these wonderful textiles: *Lace *Crochet * Toile *Ticking *Filet Panels *Tambour Lace
are in lovely cared for condition. Several Items stored for many years and others unused.
I will be listing such items over the coming months, in the hope of passing them on for a new life.
To be treasured and admired for many years to come.
.....Please do feel welcome to call back and view my wonderful antique & vintage textile collection.
