Time has finely come for us to purge all of our towels and washcloths from our college days and twenties.
A mish mosh I absolutely hate includes one red joe boxer washcloth, a few cartoon and superhero cloths, and a cute little coral cloth with red hibiscus I made for all my bridesmaids.
Lord knows I can't stand it when certain things in my home aren't exactly how I foresee them. However, this one project I could never justify the necessity to change. At least not until this year. We had moved so many times and a couple of those moves were cross country. We rarely had overnight guests in our apartment and we are young with no children. So really why spend those extra funds on nice towels when it was only John and I? Don't get me wrong, I have a four nice thick and textured neutral colored towel sets that I keep on reserve for special occasions. They only come out when we have dinner guests, party guests, etc.
But now that it is time I am finding it hard to determine where to get our new towels. I need help ecspecially when sticking to some criteria. 1. They need to be an investment. Once these are purchased they better live through all my expectations. I do not want to replace them for a minimum of ten years. They had better not fray from wash or use. 2. They need to be thick and cushy. We need comfort. 3. I want a full set that matches from wash cloths and facial clothes to extra large bath towels and hair towels. 4. I need a large set in an even number. I expect all my dishes to be on twelves for entertaining and on some occasions in eights. I do not expect anything less from my towels. 5. I'm not opposed to colors but my all time classic favorites are sands and whites. It needs to maintain the classic through the test of time. 6. Since it appears that I will be buying at between 32 and 48 linens I need to get them at a spectacular price point.
So where is the heck do I buy all these requirements rolled into one at a decent price? I'm willing to hunt in upscale department stores like Neiman Marcus down to mass warehouse stores like Costco. Just as long as each requirement is fulfilled.
So I ask for your advice on where to find these towels and your guidance on a good price.
