Vintage Tablecloths

Today was my day for finding vintage tablecloths.  I have to get them while I can.  I don't always come across them.  But, today was the day!

I found 2 of them at a garage/estate sale in McHenry.  The one is grey and yellow and it was $3.  I can't ever pass up a $3 vintage tablecloth.  The other one has 4 napkins with the tablecloth that is red poppies.  It was $8.  The lady told me it only had 2 napkins, but when I got it home, it had 4.  Even better.

The other 2 came from an estate sale in Woodstock.  One is a California tablecloth ($10) and the other is a smaller pink floral one with 4 napkins which was $5.  They were all pretty good buys.  Only a few stains, but no holes.  I already soaked 2 of them in Oxyclean and they came out really nice.  Tomorrow I will work on the other 2.

The Grayslake Flea Market is this weekend.  Too bad I can't make it.  Soccer season is still in full swing.  The McHenry and Cary Libraries book sales are next weekend Oct 19-20.  Those are good sales.  The Algonquin Library book sale is Oct 31-Nov 3.  (Thursday is preview night with a $10 fee admission.)  Oct 24th is the Congregational Church rummage sale on Pierson Street in Crystal Lake.  One of my favorite sales.
