I had the treat of visiting my oldest friend and her family in Vermont this weekend and we made a trip to the Marimekko outlet in Manchester, Vermont. Both of our moms loved the bold and colorful fabrics of Marimekko and so we’ve always had a certain nostalgia for the Finnish brand. Actually, I think we may have both grown up with these seven flower Marimekko sheets on our beds–now a popular item on Etsy and Ebay.
Anyway, we took our daughters to the outlet as well–technically, now third generation Marimekko fans–and they promptly leapt (yikes!) on to the beautifully stylized bed in the middle of the store. We had a great time admiring the whole range of Marimekko-ness, including clothing, bedding, glassware, trays, placemats, towels, pillows, accessories, shoes and kids’ clothes. And thank you to the friendly store manager, Elisabeth Hazelton, for helping us find all of our treats!
