Fantastic Fifties fabric find!

I came across this amazing bolt of 1950's fabric a couple of weeks ago at a Church sale in Whitstable.

It is so amazing and has this fantastic brown tape that runs through it saying how many yards are left (there are 35 yards!) what a brilliant idea! I have been trying to find out a bit about it but apart from the info on the tape, that says printed by Bell Punch Company Ltd, London England there is nothing on the selvedge. I am thinking of selling some, but feel I really must find out more before I do. I am told it is quite rare to find this much vintage fabric together on one bolt.

Fingers crossed I find out some more info!

found your blog whilst over at mollycupcakes reading hers. I used to live in kent before taking the big leap across the water to france. We always holidayed in tankerton near whitstable so not only was it a great memory jogger to read mollycupcakes post but to then find yours as well. I will pop by again and catch up on all the news in Whitstable. Feel free to visit my blog and website to see what I am upto
