eBay Fabric Searches

Last week, I posted about some fabric I found via eBay and I received a question from Alison asking how I go about conducting my searches. So I thought I would share...

I mainly search fabric manufacturers' names, unless there is a specific pattern name that I am trying to find. I also usually have more luck searching eBay Stores, so don't forget to search for your term in eBay Stores in addition to regular listings.

I search each term below one at a time. Type in the word "fabric" after each of these:

Schumacher
Greef
Lee Jofa
Kravet
Clarence House
Cowtan (for Cowtan & Tout, but you usually only need the Cowtan bit)
Thibaut
Duralee
Brunschwig (for Brunschwig & Fils)
Scalamandre
Osborne (for Osborne & Little)
Quadrille
Manuel Canovas
Robert Allen
P Kaufmann
Ikat

A sampling of what you might find:

Schumacher (I am TOTALLY in love with this print)



Lee Jofa



Thibaut



Kravet
