I spotted it at a thrift store.
All the tell tale signs of a vintage chenille bedspread.
Heavy cotton. Perfect blue. Simple design.
A miraculous $5.99.
A shopper equally as awestruck as I helped me inspect it for holes. None.
It passed the test. Sold.
As pulled it out of the washing machine I spied a non-vintage clue.
The white chenille seemed a bit too pilly for a spread that would be old.
If it were truly vintage,
The white criss crossy chenille would have surely lost it's cottony fluff by now.
There was just too much fluffy pill stuck to it as I pulled it from the washer.
Once dry, I inspected the back stitching further. It looked good, old.
I went around the edges looking for a tag.
And there it was.
A brand spankin' new 'made in India' tag. Curses!
Perhaps it's a Laura Ashwell?
I'm not sure. Does anyone know what the brand it may be?
Oh well. No matter.
It still looks fab and the colors are good.
For six bucks, I'm not complaining.
(Well, maybe a little.)
