These antique, vintage, and retro looking crochet projects are so beautiful, and they definitely give off a nostalgic feeling. So many of us have fond memories of our mothers/grandmothers crocheting these beautiful works of art and, for those of us lucky enough to still have one, they are precious family keepsakes. Check out some of our favorite, user-submitted photos, and share any vintage/antique crochet you might have!
I collect & sell these. I know some of mine are almost over 100 yrs old.

I didn’t know if it was vintage or not but I thought it was so pretty even though it was stained and thrown in a cardboard box at a thrift shop along with other stained and tattered items. I wasn’t sure I could get the stains out but it reminded me of a precious family friend named Pansy who died at the beginning of this year so I bought it for 25 cents and laundered it and now I treasure it and memories of the sweet lady it brings to my mind every time I see it.
This is the pineapple tablecloth I made for my son back in the 80’s. Also made the wedding ring and another one for my two daughters. I did a lot of crocheting of this sort.
