I haven't shared any great reads for a while.
Here's a book I purchased for my overflowing bookshelf.
I'm cleaning out my craft bins and closets
to make room for great new items
such as this great resource featuring
vintage tablecloths by Schiffer Publishing.
Yvonne Barineau and Erin Henderson, the authors,
give readers four different tablecloth sections --
floral, fruit and veggies, conversational,
and the geometric and abstract.
The photographs of the tablecloths
by David DeHoyos are wonderful!
Although I thoroughly enjoyed the
tablecloth descriptions and pictures,
I especially loved the information provided
about cleaning and storing vintage tablecloths
given in Chapter 5.
The manufacturers' information in
Chapter 6 along with the photographs
of the manufacturers' tags are incredible.
My only disappointment was that the price guide
was limited to pristine and tagged tablecloths.
Thus, all suggested price listings
were on the higher estimated end.
The authors did give an explanation
for this in the introduction,
but the buyer of this book still be expecting
to find help for pricing their vintage
no longer tagged and probably not pristine tablecloths.
This is a GREAT book to own.
