Vintage! Linen tea towels

I know you all must think that my tiny apartment is just bursting at the seams with all of my vintage stuff, and you would be right. So, I'm destashing some of my much beloved linens. There's a whole shelf in my linen closet stacked full of vintage linens, including about a dozen tablecloths. Here's the joke: I don't have a table! Ha!
Anyway, I started just listing a few of my super cool vintage linen kitchen and tea towels, to see if there's any interest.
This one is in perfect shape, from the fifties or sixties, with kitchen measurement equivalents and substitutions. Very cool pointing hands, too!
Unique, oversized koala Christmas towel, handprinted in Australia by Rodriguez. Neato.

Another kitchen motif one, with cups and kettles, silverware and flowers, and a sweet yellow ruffle along the bottom. It didn't dawn on me until just now, because I don't sew, but this would be very easy to turn into a darling apron.
All for sale in my etsy shop, possibly more to come!
