The Baltimore Junior League does a Treasures & Trinkets sale every so often, so I stopped by to see what they had. I had missed the preview party on Friday evening to have dinner with some friends in town, and Saturday’s unexpected snow storm kept me close to home most of the day. By the time I got there, late Sunday afternoon, most everything was picked over pretty well.
Except the linens. I love linens! Before I moved to the UK, I had a huge collection of damask napkins and tablecloths, which you could pick up for nothing at yard sales and thrift shops. Sadly, my collection was distributed to far corners, as it was impractical to take it with me. Clearly, the linens weren’t very popular with the shoppers – no one wants to iron or care for them anymore. Such a shame.
I sorted through the hundreds of napkins, huck towels, tablecloths, sheets and more, looking for pieces with my monogram on them. I wasn’t holding out hope for all three letters, but thought at least I’d find one with an M on it.
Some of the monograms were so interesting, I started taking pictures. Here are some of them.
The sale at the Junior League’s Wise Penny is on all week, and the linens are already 50% off!
