Online Find!

My New Discovery...Online Military Surplus Stores...

They have a great selection of Swiss, Czech, Italian, Bristish, US, military items.  Vintage - Used - Unused.  These are not your typical military items.  They have pillow cases, linen duvets, burlap sacks, linen garment bags and some great wool blankets.  They are also very inexpensive.  Much less than a new duvet, blanket and with much more character. 

In this month's issue of Better Homes and Garden's Magazine they show a Swiss Wool Blanket used to slipcover an ottoman.  It is beautiful!  A vintage blanket can be found in some catalogs/online for almost $300.  Today I found a reproduction version on a military surplus website for $21.99.
What a great find!
