    Does any one know of a website or websites that would have Vintage Draperies from the mid 1800's? We are repainting and putting up new window treatments but want them to be vintiage. I have been looking for two days and have come up with nothing.

    I am actually interested, because our house is a weird 108 year old mish-mash, and the windows are odd sizes.

    Been down that road!! I found some of EBay. Google Cabbage Rose fabric , you will find actual vintage fabric (for sale of EBay) and reproductions at fabric stores across the country. There are two that come to mind, one is in Louisville, Kentucky and one is in Texas. I believe the one in Texas has Cabbage Rose in its name.
    I did not buy the vintage fabric because I "chickened out", the seller was from another country. [​IMG]
