I have found over the years, that there are other collectors and folks who feel the same as me. Some collect them for nostalgic and sentimental reasons. Some use them as they were intended as dresser scarves and pillow cases even if just for display. Then others save them for craft projects and re-sale.
I am a Multi-Re-Purpose Collector!
My collection includes vintage linens and hanky's that were made by my Mother and Grandmothers. Lovely dresser scarves that have been gifts. Pieces that I have made and hopefully will be treasured by my descendants. Then there are those found at Junktique Shops, ones Thrifted and many simply saved from being trashed as having no further use.
No such thing as having no further use...not for this
Moving into Phase III of my 4R's Bucket List.
