Why We Love This

Vintage four point Early's of Witney Point wool blanket. "These 'pointed blankets,' first produced in Witney, Oxfordshire, were hugely popular with the Native Americans. During the mid-1700s French weavers developed a 'point' system to indicate the final size of the blanket. These were traded in a range of one to four points, in increments of half points. While the number wasn’t intended to indicate how many beaver pelts a blanket was worth, that is what they came to represent."

With a passion for all things vintage, Genesee River Trading Co. founders Steve and Brenda Trainor have amassed a unique collection of quirky and unique items. Whether crawling through the rafters of a 150-year old western Pennsylvania barn or sloshing through the rain soaked-fields of some of America’s best antiques fairs, they do what it takes to find things they love.
