I prefer the vintage kitchen towels because often the material is a better quality than you will find today and the price is right. I generally don’t go above five dollars a towel.
I find them at church sales, barn sales, garage sales, and so on. If they are stained or have holes I don’t bring them home, but you will often find these towels in miscellaneous linen piles. A lot of times they were purchased as souvenirs on trips or were hostess gifts which were never used.
They are fun and colorful!
