Absolutely gorgeous, vintage, Glen Court barkcloth fabric. I have been a fan of this barkcloth pattern for many years and in my opinion, there is none more beautiful. I have collected many different colors of this fabric and will be offering all that I have, as they have just been packed away for many years, so now is the time to pass them on for someone else to enjoy
The background is a soft, gray or silver nubby, cotton barkcloth fabric covered with a variety of gorgeous flowers including cabbage roses and fronds or leaves. It is shown folded in half in the second and third photos. More than likely, this large fabric piece was a double, drapery panel in its previous life, but the top has been cut off and now has an unfinished edge. It could easily be sewn to use as a drapery panel once again if you so choose or lots of beautiful barkcloth fabric to use for your crafts. This large piece measures approx. 88" wide with a professionally sewn seam down the center and selvage edges on both sides by 79" long with a 2" hem across the bottom.
I have looked this piece over carefully several times and found it to be in very good, clean condition for its age with the exception of two flaws, both located near the left side edge. There is a large, 4" X 3" hole, shown in the fourth photo and two areas of small, red colored freckles or spots, shown in the last photo. Not sure what they are and may come out if treated, but honestly they are barely noticeable. Even with these flaws, there is a lot of wonderful vintage barkcloth fabric to use in your crafting.
These vintage barkcloth fabrics are truly a treasure, especially if you are a fan of shabby chic. I have collected quite a few barkcloth pieces and have decided it is time to let them go to someone else to use and enjoy, rather than just have them packed away, so please see my other listings for more, if interested.
The posted shipping is for a large Priority Flat Rate box, which will probably be the most economical shipping method available, as it allows shipping this item anywhere in the U.S. for the same cost, but if the actual shipping cost to your zip code is less, then any overpayment of $1.00 or more will be refunded, as always.

I'm sure you would like to receive your items as soon as possible, I know I do, so I ship fast, usually the same day (if the post office is still open) or the next business day.
All packages are shipped with free delivery confirmation, but if you would like insurance, please let me know before purchasing the item and I will add the cost to the listing.
I accept Paypal or moneyorders as payment. I have been asked several times about offering a layaway plan and would be more than happy to do so. The terms are simple, 25% down and 60 days to pay in full. However, if payment is not made in full by the 60th day, all monies already paid will be forfeited by the buyer.
I don't mean to sound callous and do understand that unforseen problems do occur, but I also must protect myself and my little business. Please don't hesitate to contact me if you have any questions about my layaway policy.
Returns & exchanges
I don't accept returns, exchanges, or cancellations
But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
Additional return information
Most of the items I sell are vintage, so by definition have been used and loved for many years. In most cases, some wear is to be expected, but I do take a lot of time when listing and describing each item and am always honest with my descriptions.
I welcome any and all questions and will do my best to get back to you with an answer in a timely manner. All items are sold as is and all sales are final. As I said, I am very careful in describing each item that I sell, so I do not accept returns nor do I offer refunds. I cannot afford to sell items on approval, as I am not a big store, just an old, retired, lady trying to keep busy by selling some of the many treasures which I have collected over the years.
I have been selling on Etsy for several years and have always noted in each of my listings to please read my profile and policy pages before purchasing an item, so that you will know what my policies are. I am aware that I cannot force anyone to do so, but lately I have run into a few people who chose not to do so nor did they take the time to ask questions and then were unhappy when I declined their request to take an item back. After talking with several other sellers, I have decided to change my return policy in order to protect myself and my little business. As of now, any item can be returned if these three rules are followed: 1. The buyer must notify me of his/her intent to return the item within three days of receiving it and must return it in a timely manner. 2. The buyer will be responsible for the return shipping cost. 3. There will be a 25% restocking fee charged from the original payment before a refund is issued once the item is received back to me,
Of course, this does not apply if I have made a mistake or an item is misrepresented. After all, I am only human and definitely not perfect, so mistakes can happen, but I will always do the right thing, so if you do have a problem, please contact me immediately (within 3 days of receiving the item), so we can work it out to both of our satisfaction. I am adamant about treating people, as I wish to be treated, with dignity and respect.
