Yesterday morning I thought to myself as I was driving down a street lined with blooming trees how good life really is. I didn't have to rush, I had my coffee, the weather was nice, and I was on my way to an estate sale. For us thrifters, does it get any better than this!?
The sale was run by my favorite estate company and so I knew I was in for fair pricing and good organization. I arrived to find a large selection of glassware, jewelry, along with a the usual furniture, clothing, and general vintage goodness...including Vera.
When us retrophiles hear the name Vera, we usually think of beautiful scarves with the cute little ladybug logo. While looking through the needle-point and linen items, I came across this:
They had the Vera name and logo on them but these were not scarves, they were vintage linen placemats!
The edging is a tangerine color (Pantone color of the year) and each features a cute vegetable print. There are eight total, 2 of each pattern.
To me, these are unique since I have never seen the Vera name attached to anything but scarves. I scooped them up and will put them in the etsy shop here.
