Lovely Linens

Many of the vintage linens you've seen on my blog have come from a company 
called Euro-Linens.

Although I've never been able to visit their shop, Patine, I've had the pleasure of meeting 
Eric and Daniela (Dani) several times. 
 This past weekend I visited The Rose Bowl Flea Market with my friend Jill
and I wanted to be sure and stop by their booth. I asked them if I could take some 
photos to share with you, and they graciously agreed. Thank you both so much!!!

As always, I was thrilled with the lovely selection of linens they had available.
Many of their items are monogrammed. They also sell fabric such as
vintage French Ticking.
Aren't they all so beautiful!!!
I picked up a few Euro Shams that I'll show you soon. These are a few of the linens I've
purchased from them in the past, that have appeared in previous posts.

Their booth is always busy with lots of shoppers, and Eric and Dani are very kind and helpful. 
It was a cold day in Pasadena, but we had a great time.
If you ever get a chance to visit Euro-Linen's store or booth,
you're in for a wonderful treat! I'm looking forward to my next visit :-)

Enjoy your weekend my friends. Don't forget to stop by and 
enter my CSN giveaway!

Hi Marcia, I wish we had a flea market in New Jersey like that! The linen's are gorgeous.


sissie said...

Oh Marcia, I want these pillows and linens! I would love to happen upon a flea market that sold these. So pretty.


Christine said...

They really are lovely linens!
It's easy to see why collecting them could become an addiction!
What a fun day out you had!
Best wishes

It is nice when you know the owners of a business and like them. It is even better when their product is fabulous. I love your choices and can just imagine that your newest additions are great as well.

I never went to the Rose Bowl flea sad. I have seen it on Rachel Ashwell's Shabby Chic tv show years ago, and thought it looked amazing!

I have been to Old Orange though.

I haven't been out to a flea market in ages. I will need to call my mom and take my girls and go have a girls day out!

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

I really love grain sacks. I love the colours and the nubbly texture...and the fact that they're already distressed so my children can't do too much damage!!


Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

I just love vintage linens....looks like you have a wonderful day :)


jAne said...

linen is my favorite material. :o)
this shop is beautiful and i'm thankful to know about it!

great finds at the flea market!

Tiff said...

Oh, I love all those linens! It's hard to find anything like them here locally.

PBKISSES said...

I have a soft spot for vintage ticking. I don't own much because it is so hard to find around here. I saw some pillows, very similar to the red striped ones you show here, in Victoria mag a few months back. They are so pretty! Thank you for sharing - it looks like you had a fun day! I can't wait to see your new shams. I love the way you put things together, such talent!

Marie said...

Hi Marcia - I've always loved those euro linens too! They're very charming. And I've been planning a trip to the Rose Bowl but still haven't had a chance. I've lived here in SoCal for so long but still haven't been there yet. Someday.

Happy weekend Marcia!

Hi Marcia,
I've purchased several items from Eric and Dani over the years when they were at the Rose Bowl, I am in love with their vintage night shirts!!
Your photos looks just gorgeous!
I hope you have a wonderful weekend.

Kelli said...

Marcia, I am such a sucker for vintage (or just vintage-looking) linens! I have a few tablecloths that were my grandmother's and they bring back such sweet memories for me! That looks like a DREAM market! :)

kerrie of sea cottage said...

Marcia...Oh yes, that was my favorite line in the movie too! Now that you reminded me I had to change my post title to it! I have looked at Patine's shop online and they do look like wonderful people.

Brandi said...

I purchased a body pillow from Dani and Eric during the summer. They were both SUCH a pleasure to work with.....not to mention I adore Dani's sweet accent! :) Their merchandise is exquisite and high quality. Well worth every penny!!!! :)

I live only 20 minutes from Pasadena and have never gone to the flea market. Your photos make me want to plan a trip.

My daughter and I were just talking about going up to the Rose Bowl flea market. My sister often goes up and makes a day of it. It's about 1 1/2 hours from us here in San Diego. I'm noting Euro-Linens and will definitely make a stop there. I'm doing my window bench and linen is my first choice. Thanks for the heads up!

Mimi Sue said...

I hear the Rose Bowl Flea Market is wonderful. I so love vintage linens. Their booth looks like a place I could do some serious damage to my bank account. Mimi

Cinnamon said...

What beautiful linens. Love them all!

We use to live in Montrose about 15 yrs ago. How funny to see familiar surroundings on your blog :-)

Greetings from Italy

Janet said...

Such pretty vintage pillows! Going to the Rose Bowl Flea Market has been on my list of places I want to go!

Julie Harward said...

They are beautiful aren't they, they remind me of the 50's era. :D

Rose @ Confessions of a Curbshopaholic said...

I'm stopping by from the air your laundry party..Lovely linens you showed and I was so surprised to see the photo with the Honey Bunch books, it brought me back to my childhood. I read every one of that series and loved it! Wonder whatever happened to those books?...hmmm

koralee said...

Wow...I would go crazy at that booth!!! You lucky girl you. Thanks for sharing. xoxoxo new week hugs to you.

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

I love your linens! How lucky that you have the chance to visit them in person and to see their wares first hand. Just beautiful!! There are some sellers at the Alameda Flea Market in No. Cal. who sell things like theirs. Have bought a few things and love them.

Becky said...

Okay, I was there that Sunday too! Wouldn't that have been fun to have met up? I wish I had known. The other thing is I love their pillows and their booth doesn't look familiar...where are they? Did I pass them up and not know? I will have to look for them next time. Hope you have a great week.

Shelia said...

Cindy (Applestone Cottage) said...

Cute pic of you Marcia!
And the pillows are quite lovely, what a great day you had!

freckled laundry said...

GORGEOUS linens! I had a chance to peak around their web site and I'm completely fascinated with the process they use to wash & soften those linens...a lot of worthwhile effort. Thank you for sharing with my party!
