i'm looking for brightly colored floral flannel sheets,
which used to be easy to find. it seems that all the ones
available now and the past few years are in dusty or
somber colors, or solid colors, and rarely do they have flowers
except the antique looking sort.
does anyone know where to get them?
Garnet Hill - they have it all!
This is the wrong season to buy flannel sheets--you'll have
to wait until late summer or early fall for a good selection.
Two online/catalog stores that have good selections of nice
cotton flannel sheets are Garnet Hill
and The Company Store. We have sheets from both. Garnet
Hill's are nicer, but pricier.
Wish I hadn't waited 30 years to discover the joys of flannel
Well, this doesn't fulfill all of your request, but in case
it helps: Garnet Hill has several brightly colored floral
sheets, but they aren't flannel.
Try Company Store (companystore.com). They always have some
brightly colored florals. They have company kids
too-definitely you'll find some there.
I'd also swear that LL Bean has bright colors too, but I
could be wrong about that. Sierra Trading Post (.com)
sometimes has those things
We're moving our 2 1/2 year old from his crib to a twin sized bed
and I wanted to get him some fun sheets with trains on them. I'm
having a hard time finding good quality all cotton sheets with fun
designs. I've seen the ones online from Olive Kids but the reviews
of them indicate that they are really rough and scratchy. Does
anyone have recommendations for places to get sheets that are both
fun and nice quality/soft? Thanks
Pottery Barn Kids has some fun designs in prewashed (soft)
organic 100% cotton. Not trains, but lots of other vehicles,
boats, planes, construction trucks. Of course, they come at PB
prices, too. We have several sets of the Olive Kids sheets and
I don't think they're scratchy -- in fact, I'd say they're soft.
The ones we have are made out of cotton jersey, like a tee
shirt. They have lots of fun designs - vehicles, rescue heroes,
rockets, etc. FWIW, in my experience the kids care more about
fun designs than about feel, anyway. :)
I Wish Dino Sheets Came in King Size
I buy when it's on sale; good quality and no complaints from my
Oh, and same with Ikea
Mom of Two
The Company Store has high quality all cotton sheets with
trains, and lots of other designs too. I have no association
with the company, I just have their sheets.
I have always had good luck w/ Pottery Barn sheets for my kids.
I usually get sale sheets. They have fun designs and likely
will have one you like. Fun sheets are fun for kids, something
they will always remember cuddling up in!
When my kids were little, I had good luck with Company Kids, a
division of The Company Store. Go to
http://www.thecompanystore.com and click on the Company Kids
thingy at the top.
When our kids were young, we bought a lot of Ikea bedding...very
colorful, durable, and affordable!
We're about to re-decorate our 5-year old daughter's room,
and don't know where to shop for high-quality linens in
patterns for kid's, other than Pottery Barn Kids and
Goodnight Room. Any suggestions, in the East Bay near
Berkeley? Even out towards Walnut Creek, or San Francisco
would be fine. Thanks!
If you are open to catologues or web ordering - try Company Kids
http://www.thecompanystore.com/defaultkids2.asp or the Warm
Biscuit Company http://www.warmbiscuit.com/. Both have a great
selection. The Warm Biscuit Company is quite pricey, but the
things are really beautiful and one of a kind. Also Land of Nod
has a wonderful selection http://www.landofnod.com
Here are two Web sites with nice bedding:
Companykids.com (part of ''The Company Store'')and
Try Garnet Hill catalog. They've got a website, too.
Is that Laura Ashley store still in Broadway Plaza in Walnut
Creek? I think that's just what you're looking for!
My son is getting his first twin bed and I'm looking for some
fun sheets that do not contains commercial characters. Has
anybody seen any nice sheet that have fun stripes, zig zags,
patterns, objects, or anything like that?
I saw some cool sheets at Ikea with ants on them. Might sound
itchy, but they were cute, I thought, and a simple black and
white. They also have some bedding with a castle and knight
theme (blue and white portcullis design on sheets).
Try IKEA first - if you find something you like it would be very
reasonable. Also, Garnet Hill has some great things, also
Company Kids (both Catalogs)
Pottery Barn Kids has nice thing too - I saw some great sailboat
bedding, also checks
Try companykids.com. Sheet themes that boys might like include
trucks, dinosaurs, baseball, hockey, trucks, outer space and
I've seen some good ones in pottery barn. They often go on sale.
We found sheets and a quilt for our 2-year old boy at Target.
The sheets are jersey knit, with a colorful print of cars,
trucks, tractors, etc. The quilt is what sold me though, it's a
brightly colored affair, with 6 panels, each showing a different
car, plane, bus, etc. Target also sells matching accessories,
like pillows and rugs, but we didn't feel the need for these.
