I am getting such an inventory of new old stock French linens that my friend Bea suggested I might change the name of the store to French Linens or something like that. We laughed at the time; however it is apparent it could be true now with all these wonderful un-used antique French linen pieces. I still have boxes to unpack. Since I spend some time with each box oohing and aahing as I unpack each wonderful item, it does take some time to get these items priced and displayed.
I will show you just some of the items:
Many items are also monogrammed such as the sheets to the right. For a trousseau for a wedding that never happened?
Most all these items came from Bea's wonderful collection she brought with her from France when she moved to the US.
Beautiful pristine usused linen, cotton, or metis gowns, as well as a few silk.
Christening gowns for babies:
Lingerie cases and boudoir cases where the ladies kept their personals, keepsakes, letters from their lover.
So many other items to come. This is all I had time to take pictures of today. Added the little handmade bag from the French Alps.
