Hello, I’m looking for vintage cabbage rose wallpaper. I’m not having much luck finding what I’m looking for. Making the Orchid into a shabby chic house. Best place to look?  Thank you.

This is not vintage but Itsy Bitsy had some beautiful rose floral papers. My favorite place to get them was from the following site. She no longer carries it but is selling what she has in stock. The number of sheets is listed. Scrool down past mini graphics.

I Googled "vintage cabbage rose dollhouse wallpaper" and came up with pages of images, if you wanted to print your own.  You could also try "dollhouse wallpaper patterns:  vintage cabbage rose" and see what pops up.

 I bought this paper for my orchid but changed my mind. It might work for you. The price is right! If the link doesn't work, go to the Hobby Lobby website, navigate to scrapbook papers and put Eloise Floral in the search.

The old standby - Roosevelt Rose: https://www.miniatures.com/Roosevelt-Rose-Wallpaper-P18695.aspx

And 

this one could probably be tiled and printed: https://i.pinimg.com/originals/21/43/e8/2143e86d20f822a512e02dbfaae9b60a.jpg

And this one is from itsy bitsy - #894:

and another itsybitsy #1555

I make my own using a free program with my laptop ( Microsoft Paint).   I find zillions of designs on Pinterest.   If you want instructions how to do it send me a PM.   I haven't bought wallpaper in years.    
For one inch scale I often use scrapbook paper.
For half scale I make my own and print out on cardstock.

Ya know...I emailed ItsyBitsy once and they said if I didn't see it, to send them the original number and an image of what I which pattern I was interested in and they could probably help me out. And I did and they did. So if you find one of their patterns you love and you see the number on it, but it isn't on their site-  it is worth emailing them to see if they can print it for you.

Thank you Holly.

Actually a list of good quality wallpaper makers would be good. I have looked at BradneX ?? Jacksons Miniatures but I feel there are probably loads out there I don't know

Les Chinoiseries has incredible paper. They're in Spain so shipping is higher, but the fine fine texture, oh, I love the paper. I just collect it without a specific purpose sometimes.

Yes, I agree, I did the same thing and she helped me and reprinted some older styles for me.
