Vintage Runner

Doesn't seem like I've had too much to blog about lately, but here is a runner that I bought about five years ago. I got it off of ebay from one of those businesses who will sell your stuff FOR you if you're not computer savvy, or don't want to bother. Unfortunately that means that I don't know the history of it because I didn't get it from the maker. Believe it or not no one else bid on it so I paid a whopping $10 for it! And I drove one hour south to pick it up in person so I didn't even have to pay shipping! WooHoo! It measures 18" x 72" and I have it on the floor next to my bed. I've seen this same design in one of Deanne Fitzpatrick's books, but don't know if she's the designer or not.


I'm pretty sure all the wool is as-is - probably from recycled clothing.

What a great runner. You couldn't make it for $10.00. What a great deal!!

Gayle - Deb is right-you couldn't have made it yourself for $10, and the time factor makes it even a bigger bargain!! Love the look. Congratulations on finding such a great piece.
