Vintage Marimekko on Ebay

Wednesday, March 23, 2011

With several undone furniture makeover projects waiting in the wings (or as I call it, the mud room) , I headed over to Ebay to look for something out of the ordinary.  A vintage fabric search led me to these bold, colorful and still relevant beauties from Finland's Marimekko.

Looks like Marimekko did a remix of this pattern for their feature print of Spring 2011.


AND -  they have a blog!

Oh, and I'm signing off for the week.  My girls are on spring break and we're headed to Atlanta to do some power prom dress shopping!  See you back here Monday!!

oooh--I love that blue fabric at the bottom!! Have a wonderful time in hot-lanta with the girls. Those were always such good memories with my mom! Makes me wish I had girls. Tuxedo shopping just doesn't ruffle my feathers. :-)

I am not a big ebay searcher but so many people have posted about finding great stuff on there. Maybe I need to change my mind!
These are gorgeous....I love all the bright colors.

Loving your finds! I think these would make amazing pillows, chair upholstery and or your clever idea of having them framed. Sparks are flying over here on this one!!! M.

My sister had Marimekko bedding when we were little- I should go check my mom's linen closet and see if any is left. Have a great weekend! -Ann

I was always a huge Marimekko fan in the day - so fun to see these designs again! I still have several dresses my mother made me with their fabric. I especially like the first and the b/w wavy stripes. Hope you have a wonderful break with your girls!!

I love these patterns and the colors are so happy. I remember Marimekko's cool stuff before it was considered "vintage". Looks like they are making a big comeback too with their new store in Manhattan!
