I have collected vintage (and newer) needlepoint pieces for years. I love the details and truly appreciate the hours of work that went into each piece. I have many pieces displayed throughout my home.
Last week I was shopping at my local antique store when I found these two beauties, a pair of gorgeous needlepoint rooster pillows. The colors were great and the decorative trim was such a nice detail. When I realized the price included both pillows, I immediately put them in my shopping cart. An added bonus was that everything was twenty percent off in that booth.
I kept looking around the booth and found a bench full of needlepoint pillows. They were all so pretty that I decided to purchases almost all of them. I will keep my favorites and sell some of the other ones.
Lots of beautiful florals.
And so many great chicken and rooster pillows.
I ended up with a shopping cart full of needlepoint pillows. That certainly doesn’t happen every day.
It will be nice to rotate these with some of the ones that I have had out for a while. I think I will head back to that store tomorrow and see what new (or old) things have been brought into that booth.
What are your antiquing plans for this weekend?
