By the way, Harry Rinker lives about 15 miles from me.

Maybe I've run into a local cult or maybe it's a trend... time will tell.
Over the past year, mostly at Antique Shows, we've been selling antique feed bags and seed sack material to young (high school age) girls. In addition they swoon over homespun linen pieces (well, so does my wife) and while they don't generally have the money on hand to buy it at the show they will ask for a business card. Many have contacted us at home or thru our ecrater store and purchased homespun and old woven ticking.
Their stories are varied but similar enought that I'm starting to believe... they are buying vintage clothing they like and reworking them to wear. Sometimes they are adding panels to skirts or dresses, sometimes they are making new linings for things and in a few cases they are outright sewing their own designed clothing. Who would have thought? One young lady, in particular, is learning to reupholster thrift store furniture with old feed bag material... and reselling it in a Craft/Antique mall in New Jersey. You go girl!
There does seem to be a common thread (pardon the pun) between them. They are all (that I've talked to) taking Home Economics in high school. I didn't even know they still taught that. However, they are not all going to the same school, nor do they live in the same state, they are coming from both sides of the Delaware River (PA - NJ).
So, I'm not sure what's going on with all this but I'm quite sure that the young people aren't ignorant of antiques but they do not look at them the same way as we baby boomers, and previous generations, have.
