Images of Metis

What images will come to mind
when you think of
Metis Linens?

{19C French Republic enamel sign, vintage grain measures;
apple display less a dozen sold on Sunday}

Vintage linens are our specialty~
{vintage linen & hemp dish towels}

our goal is to provide you with a selection~
{linen dish towels from the Paris flea}

Our passion is authenticity
let's throw in a little crusty stuff~

{French copper-trimmed drum sticks}

Linens that blend perfectly with the old & the new~
old linens that can not be imitated~
{linen & hemp dishtowels with hand-sewn mono}

Smooth, rough, silky or soft~

in linen, cotton, hemp & various blends~
in a word~ delicious
{We would take every bit of it home, but we'd get in trouble}

we will have a new palette or theme each time we show~

{18C hand-forged key, 19C French Revolution book set & paperweight)

keep it fresh~
{fencing masks, grain measures, hat stands}

Organic & always natural displays~

{French linen twine, apple & lychees from the farmers market}

Nothing too fussy~
{crusty 19C key sets with satin ribbon}
you will wonder are we in the the U.S.?
{Laura's vintage PA ticking with French linen pillows}

or are we in France?
{vintage but unused napkin yardage, for table runners}

the sweet touches of Laura~

I can imagine the delight everyone felt as they stumbled into your well appointed booth. It looks beautiful. Bravo ladies.

The colours and textures are so gorgeous...Wish I could reach out and touch each item! The rusty keys and crisp linens with the worn and weathered bells. Beautiful!
Thanks for sharing! :o)

I've got a B.B. in my life, are those napkins still around. They are great. Why Oh Why, did I leave Pasadena? Contact me through my website, if they are still around. Who knew blogging was Christmas shopping?

Laura, Love your linens. Please let me know if ever come to High Point for market.

Liz, who commented above, please contact me {} there are two sets in hemp and one in linen, they are actually BR but the petit croix stitch makes it look like BB. Or one more stitch would definitely make it BB~
