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.
