All to myself, today. I really like it here. I use the big machines to wash and finish big projects. This rag runner started 20' long, washed on permapress/warm cycle, $2.25. The floor tiles are 1ft squares, so I can measure the length after washing, and decide if it should go through a hot drier. The laundrette is clean, well lighted, and compulsively organized--qualities I long for in the rest of my day to day life.
The wall mural documents a washday in yesteryear, painted by a woman I once met. I've had a lot of time to study it here.
Your public laundromat is much, much cleaner than the one near me!
It is a tidy place, and I've had many unique experiences here, including an 11 p m mandolin concert
i have never seen a laundromat like that .... so clean so new ... wow !
& all the machine work ?
beautiful rugs .
beautiful rug and what an excellent way to measure them! and hey, a laundromat with a view
The runner is fabulous, Susan!
Wonderful rugs! I can see why you like going there as it's like stepping back in time.
I love the rug, the cleanliness of the laundromat, and the mural.
Thanks for sharing all 3!
Your rug is beautiful. The laundromat is such a special place. You've depicted your surroundings in such a lovely way.
I'm moving back home to the Midwest after living in Queens and Brooklyn for 28 years. You have reminded me that there is so much beauty in that part of the country. It makes me anxious to get back!
Lovely runner! Is it going to be installed on stairs?
The last time I used a laundromat I was 22 years ago, 36 weeks pregnant towing a toddler and a load of soaking wet clothes taken from a broken washer at home. It was not a happy place. But now it is a good memory!
This one has been here for many years. I used to come here with babies and buckets of soaking diapers! Talk about yesteryear!
i found a nifty laundromat in maine...but no mural! still. it's like stepping back for me. your cloth looks "to home" there.
Velma, This mural is a very detailed portrait of Purdy, a little valley town, and some people who lived there, inlcuding the artist as a little girl.
It's the main feature of this laundrette
what a lovely laundromat! and it was a great background for your beautiful rugs - I love the styling, like an article in an interior design magazine!
