Estate sale: pina cloth

An AAUW friend moved to a nursing home earlier this year.  Bunny lived in a big, late 19th-century Italianate house on the north side of Waukegan for years.  She was a nurse who served in the Navy (Korean War, I think). She was also a pilot.  She had accumulated so much stuff that the estate sale was held for two weekends. 

Among the things I bought was this never-used hankie.  Tucked in side were these care instructions.  Pina cloth is made from pineapple fiber

The back of the instructions -- all the souvenirs a tourist would want!


  1. What a wonderful treasure to rescue from your friend's old home. It looks hand-embroidered, too.
