Over 350 ish vintage Handkerchiefs dating from (at a guess) early 1900 to 1970s? Possibly a couple from the 80s. Mostly 40s/50s/60s and the plain cotton and linens which I'd guess are from the 1900s to around 1930s. They were used for my wedding and made the day a truly beautiful vintage affair, but it's time to clear out due to an attic conversion. I've washed, line dried and ironed all 357 of them!

There are roughly around 357. My last count was 354 hankies plus two doilies and a table cloth (tiny) so there's a lot of vintage fabric there. Most are in okay used condition, quite a lot are perfect but there's a fair amount with discolouration or staining. (This could be bleached out in some cases).

I'm sure the marks and staining would be fine if just using for bunting or crafting but not if you're planning for pristine condition use, like as a table decoration... PLEASE bear that in mind.

Not all are anywhere near perfect! If you're planning to use for embroidery, appliqué or any other craft then these are ideal as there's loads of gorgeous old patterns, embroidery and material types to work with. Some cotton, linen, silk, rayon, polyester... Loads of different types of fabrics. We've about 30 that have been stitched into triangles.

They were made into bunting with flowers on the day and I've saved them in case anyone wants to unpick them and use the fabric from them as well. Due to the sheer quantity they will be sent out in two separate boxes. Wouldn't wish that on anyone.
