I have been coming across vintage sheets all over the place recently! I love the older sheets, I think because they remind me of my childhood. The ones I love the best are the super soft 100% cotton sheets like this pink Springmaid full size flat sheet. It has a pretty pink rose border at the top, and the rest of the sheet is solid pastel pink. Unfortunately there is a stain on it, but they must be something someone can do with this beauty.
My Grandmother loved the designer Vera Neumann, and had several sets of sheets designed by her as well as table linens and scarves. One set of sheets she had I recently found at an estate sale – pretty green and white in a fern pattern. Its a very recognizable and common sheet set. I am keeping that set, but I also picked up another set in bright orange and white with a design that looks like cherry blossoms. It is not compatible with my colors, otherwise I would keep them too. What do you think? These are now sold – they went quick!
I also found a Dan River Tranquale luxury percale full fitted sheet and standard pillowcases still in the package. Peaceful blue, white and green floral design. It is funny to think about this sheet sitting in someone’s linen closet all these years and never opened up! They are from before UPC bar codes, so pre-1974. So someone has been storing an unused, new in the package sheet for over 40 years in their linen closet! Well I’m happy about it because that is the kind of stuff I love coming across at estate sales!
