Look what landed on my doorstep last week................The Travelling Linen Stash!
I sent the Travelling Linen Stash off on it's New Zealand Tour in October 2013. 1 year and 3 months later it has found it's way back.
Jam packed with all sorts of goodies - tea towels, table cloths, doilies, pillowcases, aprons, napkins tea cosies and even some pieces of retro and vintage fabrics.
The plan is to send it off to Australia next. I will be in touch with those who signed up to make sure your addresses are still correct (a lot can happen in 1 year and 3 months) and make sure you still wish to participate. To keep postage low I may look at sending off a couple of smaller packages - would be keen to know your thoughts on this or if you have an alternative idea.
I looking forward to having a good sort through. Some of the stash will make it's way into my linen stash (I love the tea cosies) and the rest will be wash, pressed and sent on it's merry way.
If you are in Australia and wish to sign up, drop me an email with your address details to:
alittlebitcountrynz (at) gmail (dot) com
Here are a few things to keep in mind:
*I will put my stash of linen that I am keen to swap into a travelling box and post it off to the first name on the list.
*For every item you remove from the box you will need to replace it with something.
*All items need to be clean. And of course stain and hole free. As with a lot of retro and vintage items there are sometimes age spots etc. Some people don't mind this. Just make sure you pin a note to your item so future swappers are aware.
*You need to be happy about paying the outgoing postage to the next person. I will compile the recipient list so the next person to receive the Stash is as near to you as possible.
If everyone is still happy to go ahead - The Travelling Linen Stash will once again be on it's way!
Thank you to all the lovely ladies who participated in this swap - I hope you found some great vintage and retro linen to treasure. xo
