I love finding vintage Martex linen towels because they have a real following among people who know a good towel. They are the easiest thing in the world to sell because so many people search them out. The fabric is quick drying, and the designs are always top notch.
Well, add me to the list of Martex fans. I recently found the one above, and another pictured below. I just fell in love with the sleek modern look of them. In a time when most cocktail linens were tacky and snickery – drunks leaning on lampposts, pink elephants in champagne glasses – the simple design must have appealed to those with modern sensibilities.

I shouldn’t even come to this blog! You make me want to find these things, too. LOVE the black towel. Want it. Need it. I love cocktail themed items. Cool finds, Lizzie!

Holly, it’s a good thing we are far enough away that we don’t go to the same sales and get into hair-pulling fights over the good stuff!!

I have always thought Martex towels to be pretty much unsurpassed in quality. Those are both super! I also love Startex towels.
