Vintage Plastic Drapes

I snagged all 3 of these sets for a total of $4. How could I not?

3 packs of vintage 1950's curtains each 9 feet by 87 inches long.

Just about enough to cover all my huge, floor-to-ceiling living room windows.

But plastic? You ask?

My Dad used to buy all sorts of stuff to sell at the swap meet back in the day when swap meets still had cool stuff to sell and didn't become useless junk sales. (big yard sales held at Drive-In movies during the day on the weekends for you youngsters out there lol), and he had a whole lot of plastic table cloths from the same era. They were sturdier than you think, and I believe these will be too.

Not the colors I want, BUT my windows are so huge, and the sun beats down mercilessly on that side of the house in the summer, so I might try these as a liner between my actual curtains and the glass.

Hey they were $4, you think I could say no? lol....

If you haven't already, vote on a chat board for us here, yea or nay!
