Let’s talk linens
The first thing that comes to mind when I think thrift store linens is, “Circle circle dot dot, now I need my cootie shot.”
Linens are not something I normally buy up when thrifting because of the ewww factor. My exception is drapes. I’ve found several sets of Pottery Barn ones at thrifty stores and I love them. A little Oxi Clean and they are good as new.
The other day I made a major thrifty linen haul. I found six beautiful fine linen/matelasse pillow covers, NEW with tags.
Wanna see? You know you do… 😉
Pardon the wrinkles!
I’m going to have these monogrammed and they’re gonna look like a million bucks!
Did you check out those price tags??? Had I paid retail (NEVER) for these six pillows, the total would have been $428 plus tax which is a bazillion percent here in Toronto.
I got them for 99 cents each with no tax for total of $5.94….a savings of $422.06. 🙂
I also picked up this bee-you-tee-ful upholstery fabric for 99 cents each piece. Probably from the same donator. I’ve got big plans for this stuff…
Here are the pillows with inserts…
So next time you are thrifting, before you turn your nose up at the linens section…you might want to just take a little look-see.
Thuh linens sec-shun is like a bawks of chawcletts…yuh nevah know what yuh gunna geyut.
Said in my best Forest Gump voice. 😉
