Pat's Place, Marushka retailer in the 1980s

Pat's Place - Marushka store

From the Marysville Globe in Washington, December 1982:

If you're looking for some unique and colorful prints to hang in your home or office, you'll want to check with Pat Hazel at Pat's Place. Hazel specializes in the complete Marushka line of hand screened fabric prints and other accessories. She remarked her store was the only one she knew of that has a complete line. "If it's not in stock, it's on order," Hazel said. Hazel began selling the prints at her Marysville store, located at 1309 State Ave., Nov. 15. She used to work for the state in Michigan. After her husband retired, they moved to the Pacific Northwest. She had never been in retail before and thought she never would. But she loves the Marushka line and enjoys working with the prints and meeting people, so she decided to open her own store...Standard sizes begin at 8x10 and run up to 24x36 and are priced between $9-25. The textile graphics run from 24x48 to 48x60 and can be purchased for $35 up to $60. Marushka also features trapunto, which are stuffed prints ranging from $18-50. Pat's Place also carries the Marushka line of mugs, aprons, and potholders. She plans to carry glassware in the near future and will carry a new line expected out after the first of the year featuring sewn products made out of prints. Also available are remnants of irregular prints which are unframed.
