The Deal: Oilcloth International yearly warehouse sale sells cuteness by the yard in Highland Park

June 23, 2011 |  6:30 am

Ditty Bag (other prints available)
Oilcloth International's warehouse sale of seconds Saturday will include totes, lunch bags, bibs and aprons at wholesale prices. Owner Cardie Molina said the sale will include rolls of oldies -- discontinued or flawed prints -- as well as first-quality, 12-yard rolls of fabric for $60. Tablecloths will be sold for $2 a pound; at that price, Molina estimates that a 48-inch tablecloth would go for about $3.

For those unfamiliar with oilcloth, it's a durable laminated material that is a fun choice for summer entertaining. It's stain-resistant and can be wiped clean with a soft cloth. 

The sale runs from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Last year buyers arrived early and bought feverishly, leaving latecomers disappointed. So this time Molina said she will put merchandise out every hour, throughout the duration of the sale. All payments must be cash or check.

Oilcloth International is at 134 N. Avenue 61, Unit 101, in the Highland Park neighborhood of Los Angeles. Information:  (323) 344-3967.
