A few weeks ago we went to the Long Beach Antique Market and discovered the business venture of Chris Brady and Dustin Rowser. They have been importing antiques and grain sacks, linens and all kinds of great stuff from Europe since they began Uber Chic Home in 2009. The have a small brick and mortar shop in Salt Lake City.
|Chris writing down the 411...I'm so glad we asked because I walked away with only two purchases. How did I let that happen? They just had a container sale that ended last weekend in Brentwood, CA. Their next container will be at High Point Market, April 21-26.|
|This is one of my purchases. Chris said the herringbone pattern means it is from Germany. I love the pink. He suggested using it as a runner and the size is perfect for my dining room table once I deconstruct it. It had a brownish stain down the middle of the pink strip, but said to launder it with Oxiclean...and it came out beautifully.|
|I saw this on Lisa Roy's blog. She did an internet search for free antique alphabets, made a pattern, traced it onto her linen and embroidered her initial. It's so pretty.|
