Listing is for one panel, with discounts for multiple panels. There are a total of four panels available.
These late 1960s/early 1970s J C Penney Penn Prest Fashion Manor Café Curtains will take your Granny Chic or “That 70s Show” decorating jam to “11!”
Saturate, vibrant color and a bold, expressive, large scale floral pattern add instant — and authentic — style, punch, and gravitas to your throwback space. Light comes through them in a warm, nostalgic, cozy way.
The bonus is that since they’re vintage, it’s way greener to re-use these than to buy cheap imitation retro curtains from the big box stores.
STYLE: The curtain style is pleat-top, café length.
FIBER: While there is a tag on one of the panels, it doesn’t include the fiber. I believe it’s an acetate coated cotton. The inside is coated in a blackout curtain poly.
SIZE: Each pleat top panel is 25″ wide at the top and 40″ wide at the bottom; 44″ long with a 3″ hem if you needed to lengthen at all. (Curtain hooks not included).
COLORS: On a white background are flowers and foliage in cranberry, mango, mustard, olive, sage, and black. Pics of the curtains in a window were taken at noon in full sun.
CONDITION: Very good for their roughly 50 years. Here and there are slight discolorations on the front but nothing that it super visible or that jumps out at you — just typical vintage. The back side has some more discoloration, again nothing serious, just from being on the window side when hung.
LISTING: $119.00 per panel. Four panels are available. The more you buy the more you save.
ALTERNATIVE USE: Plenty of fabric for other projects if you were interested in upcycling the fabric to new projects.
ADD ONS: Option for us to convert these to pole pocket at $75. PER PANEL. DM me if you’re interested in this option and we can set up a custom order and a longer ship time so the work can be performed.
SUSTAINABILITY: ALL my packaging except tape is 100% re-used. Your invoice is available digitally in your account. I source vintage items and resources either as they are, or to upcycle into new products, giving them a new life. This reduces demand on current resources, preserves history, and keeps valuable items out of the landfill, all of which asks just a little bit less out of our ever-giving Mother Earth. Etsy buys carbon offsets for all shipping, which is a win-win for the sustainability-minded shopper.
Everything from a smoke-free and pet-free studio.
