Vintage Fabric Finds on eBay & Etsy

Hello and oops! It’s been a while since my last post. The reason? SEARCH ENGINE OPTIMISATION.

I have a customer who is both a copy writer and SEO expert so we traded cushions for advice. It was such good advice that I’ve spent the last three weeks updating the layout and all the copy on my Fabulous Vintage website.

As I still have a lot to do, I’ll keep this one short and sweet.

There has been lack of good vintage fabric finds on eBay UK over the last few weeks. I suspect the reason is, the British are out there soaking up the last few rays of summer sun and not scouring the attic for things to sell.

eBay UK:

I’m afraid you won’t find this beautiful vintage bark cloth fabric on eBay now, as I’ve just bought it to add to my collection. It will be winging its way to Australia soon, so you’ll be able to find it on my website at the end of October. I was immediately attracted to the beautiful rainbow colours and as soon as I realised it was barkcloth I snapped it up. All four metres of it, yippee!

eBay Australia

I’m loving barkcloth at the moment and there is a beautiful piece on eBay Australia for sale by Vintage Linen Cupboard. I’m undecided whether or not to bid on this piece. I really love it and could imagine it made into a beautiful bedroom lampshade…decisions, decisions.

This gorgeous piece is located in Michigan so will be costly to shop to Australia, however it’s so pretty it might just be worth it. This lovely fabric would be fabulous made into kitchen bench seat or kitchen chair cushions with a pair of curtains or tablecloth to match.

I’ve just stumbled across a gorgeous vintage fabric shop on the ever wonderful Etsy. It’s called Fabbits and is located in Amsterdam, Netherlands. Here is a gorgeous piece, currently for sale in Olga’s shop.

That’s all from me today folks!

Until next time,

Fabulous Vintage In Situ – Castle Crag, Sydney

Cate & Simon have a beautiful waterside house in Castle Crag on Sydney’s Lower North Shore. The house is 1970s design with lots of light and is very well suited to vintage retro fabric. Cate makes beautiful quilts and and has lots of her gorgeous works displayed. In all the house has a very warm and eclectic feel, it’s really lovely.

We went for colours that complimented a red feature wall and the other neutral wall and carpet. After much deliberation we chose two Bevis fabrics in the same print ‘Tatton’ in two colourways, yellow and brown, this fabric is from the 1970s. The central piece is called ‘Contessa’ but as there is nothing else in the selvage I am unsure who the designer is. The ‘Contessa’ cushions finish the look.

Each piece is 80 cm wide by 90 cm tall.

As you can see the finished wall art is very striking. Cate & Simon love it and so do I!
