Reviewing my ebay saved searches this week, I discovered a seemingly new source of vintage New Old Stock wallpaper — multiple rolls of the patterns featured, so far — good prices (=/- $25 per roll, shipping factored into my number crunch) — and Buy It Now, so you don’t need to dally. I received permission to show some photos… and there seems like there will be lots more designs coming out of hiding soon. Lisa — owner of this wallpaper store in Elkhart, Indiana — told me, she “decided to go through these old storage rooms that contain thousands of rolls of wallpaper.” Be still my heart. Above: Ebay carousel (*affiliate link) with 10 of the papers currently for sale. THERE ARE MORE, and I see that Lisa seems to be listing more rolls daily. To see all the papers, click on any one of the papers in the carousel to get into that particular listing, then click on See Other Items to see everything that’s up. More –>
Here’s what owner Lisa told me when I asked permission to feature photos of these delights:
We own a wallpaper store in Elkhart Indiana. Frank’s Wallpaper and I have decided to go through these old storage rooms that contain thousands of rolls of wallpaper. Some of them are good and some not so great. So keep checking we will be listing them all on eBay. I have recently closed my internet store but we are considering re-opening that also as wallpaper is making a come back.
Above: I bought this paper for my mud room. As you will recall, I recently re-wallpaper my bathroom, which has encouraged me to wallpaper my mudroom. The Retro Decorating Gods delivered this delightful Americana-on-aqua just as I needed it!
Above: PERFECT for a kid’s room!
Above: Crazy geometrics.
Above: The piec de resistance, or however you spell it: A 5′ by 4′ wallpaper mural. UPDATE: It was Buy-It-Now and it sold within minutes of my Facebook alert.
UPDATE: More loveliness added, I see. Lisa knows she’s getting some good publicity, I bet, and is working it!:
