Great Vintage Finds – Embroidered Pillows

September 14, 2010

Queen Street Commons Café in downtown Kitchener is a small gathering place, with great Vegetarian food and a cute little gift shop.  I stopped in the other day to grab some lunch to go and I left with more than just my lunch.  In the little gift shop I found three beautiful and gentle used, vintage embroidered toss pillows.  I fell instantly for them and they were a great price, so they had to come home with me.

Each one has its own personality and they look great grouped together.

Vintage Indian embroidery with Indian silk – $17

Rare vintage Indian embroidery on Indian cotton – $15

Single thread Chinese embroidery with vintage velvet – $20

I have to say, $52 for three one of a kind pillows made me a very happy girl.  Right now they are adorning the bed in out guest room until I can find a better place to display them in our home.

Keep your eyes one when you are out wandering, you just never know what you will find!
