Why didnt we hold on to nanas tabletop oilcloth ?

Patterns such as these are all the rage these days. What used to cost nana $.35-$1.00 back in the day now costs anywhere between $22-$95 depending on your shopping skillz and patience.  

Many designs come from re-engraved rollers that originated back in 1930's Mexico.
*They are great for adding some vintage flair to your interior design! Great for your breakfast or dinner table, patio, parties, BBQ's or picnic tables.
*Many use oilcloth for baby play areas, sewing/ art projects, bags, totes, book covers, runners, place mats, gifts or scrapbooks. Oilcloth is durable - even when used with hot plates. Very easy to wipe clean.
*Oilcloth is easy to clean with a warm, soapy sponge. Machine washing is not recommended. Fabric is waterproof in addition to being stain and soil resistant. This oilcloth has been tested and passes the National Fire Protection Agency 701 classification for commercial and residential use. All fabric is printed on one side only. Fold marks (creases) relax and smooth out in a short time - faster in warm weather. Spare cloth should be stored rolled, clean, and in a dry, cool storage area.
