Most of the grain sacks in my etsy shop have sold so I've decided to dig into the stash and get some more listed. A year ago my "stash" was huge...I had over 700 sacks at one point.
I haven't counted lately, but there are not that many left.
It seems that most buyers prefer the ones that are the closest to "perfect";
without too many stains, repairs or holes.
I'm afraid my heart beats at a different pace. While I can appreciate the "pretty" ones, what really gets my pulse racing are the gnarly survivors like this one.
It's been around the block and over the river more than once.
It shows honest wear from just going to work and doing it's job.
(At the risk of offending some by getting political for
a moment, I wish our Wisconsin Democratic Senators would do the same...)
I love the way the farmer or his wife patched this with a bit of blue/white ticking.
Charming, yes?I'm linking up with Capers of the Vintage Vixens for Bloggers' Bodega, (grain sacks are available in my etsy shop with more are being added today)
Faded Charm for White Wednesday.
