Here's to a happy and healthy new year!!
Can't wait to see you all in 2012! Stop by January 12th, 13th, and 14th for our first sale of 2012...
We are open this weekend!
December 15th, Thursday 10:00-5:00
December 16th, Friday 10:00-5:00
December 17th, Saturday 10:00-3:00
Stop by Maple and Magnolia's blog to see some pics of the shop! Thanks Susan!
We have had such a rush on mom's burlap runner's, she had to make a ton more for this week's sale. We are so pleased you are all as fond of them as we are. They are so versatile and so, so cute!
We still have a few bags of snowballs left at the shop. They look so cute in a bowl.
I know, you've seen this done a million times, but I couldn't resist. They are just so cute! The glass balls we used have a slight iridescence to them, and they are really quite pretty. As you can see, Boom Boom really likes them too.
I love wrapping gifts in brown paper and then personalizing it with fun things on top. We hope you do too. We have quite a few rolls ready to go, and tons of ideas for the top. How about a zinc letter tied on with red and white baker's twine? Or maybe green plaid ribbon with a glittered letter tag on top. You could even put a pretty ornament tied up on top.
We are open again this weekend. So come up and see us. 22029 N. Pepper Road, Unit 2, Lake Barrington, IL. Thursday 10-5, Friday 10-5, Saturday 10-3.
I hope you all had a very nice Thanksgiving! Anne and Mom and I, and the whole Tattered Tiques family, are so "thankful" to all you who follow us online, and for those who visit us each week at the shop! We enjoy so much seeing you all each month and making new friends. We have met the nicest people in the last 8 months, and have had such a blast doing it!
And now onto business....We hope you can make it out this week for a visit, but just in case you can't, I wanted to entice you with some pictures of the shop. We try to mix things up a bit each week, and always try to have new things out for each sale. So take a look.
Our burlap runners are always such a hit, so we thought we'd make some wintry ones. We have red burlap with plaid ruffles, and red burlap with green ruffles, and even all red. Take your pick, but get them quick. We often have to send poor mom home to replenish our runner supply.
This antique Queen chicken brooder would make a great kitchen island, or even a coffee table. Anne is in love with this piece. The front opens up to glass panels, where once you could see the little chicks through.
Consider this the "before" picture. We cleaned this piece up and waxed it, and then added crystal knobs. I guess you'll have to come up to the shop to see the "after" shot. I love old pine furniture like this. It shows so much history.
We think this is another one of those cabinets that would look great in a bathroom, however, it is such a nice size and could go about anywhere. We picked it up last week up north. Dad actually spied it first. He's getting good at "picking"!
Speaking of cherry. This Santa plaque would be adorable on the front of a wreath. I should know, I have one very similar that I put on my front door every year. I just love it!
The stockings are hung by the chicken coop with care, with hopes that you'll soon be there. While there, pick up one of Anne's banners. We have Noel, Believe, and even a glittery Christmas banner. This is one of those things that Anne is always having to make more of each week. We can't keep them in the store for very long.
Well, I hope I have peaked your interest enough to warrant another visit to Tattered Tiques this week. We will also be open next week if you can't make it out this Thursday, Friday, or Saturday. Have a great weekend!
Tattered Tiques is located at 22029 N. Pepper Road, Unit 2, Lake Barrington IL.

Our dad recently went on a picking trip up in the Northwoods and he found some pretty cool "guy stuff" as he likes to call it.
We have bunch of these old sleds in the shop. They are all decked out and ready for Christmas. I have one I lean on the wall outside my garage door. I throw an old pair of ice skates over it to make a cute little wintery vinette.
We still have some old chicken feeders left from our summer sales. We popped the handles off, added some peas and candles and now have a wonderful authentic centerpiece! We have some small ones and a really long one that would look so great down the center of a long table.
We still have plenty of Thanksgiving items out too. Stop by this weekend and grab some holiday cheer!
We have been very busy getting ready for the Holiday's at Tattered Tiques. We've been crafting and creating. I just had to share what's in the shop this week. Take a peak, and come see for yourself.
And pretty snowballs for winter.
A couple of vintage sleds....
Paper folded wreaths made out of vintage sheet music.....
There are Christmas banners and tons of Christmas tags and ribbon.
As you can see, we have been busy. There are some really cool new furniture pieces too. Anne and I were at an auction this weekend, and we brought lots back with us. So come out for a visit this week.
We are open this week Nov. 10th, 11th, and 12th, hours are Thursday 10-5, Friday 10-5, and Saturday 10-3. Next week we're open too, Nov. 16th, 17th, 18th. Come see us at 22029 N. Pepper Rd. Unit 2, Lake Barrington. Hope to see you soon!
