Big News for Tattered Tiques!

Tatttered Tiques has very exciting news!  We are renting space for the summer to hold our sales out of.  Yes, it's true, we are opening a shop!  It has been a few years since we had our last space in Crystal Lake, Il.  That space was a large garage unit, we have upgraded to a warehouse.  It is located in Lake Barrington, IL.  We have already started transforming the space.  After we get done with it, it will be fabulous.  I wanted to share some before pictures with you so you can see the progress as we go along.

Remember, it's a warehouse right now.  But will be transformed into a chic little shop!

There are also two offices attached to the warehouse.We will probably only use this front office.  It has a nice window to give our customers a sneak peak at what's to come in the upcoming sales.

As you can see, we already had a small room removed.  That gave us much more room in the warehouse area.

Here's mom and Anne just starting to paint that massive wall.  Let the games begin!

We are really excited.  So much to do to get ready for the grand opening.  We are thinking that the shop will be open twice a month, for Thursday, Friday, and Saturday of the chosen week. The Grand Opening will tentatively be on April 21st, 22nd, and 23rd.  We will also be doing the Garden Clubs of Illinois Convention on April 18th, and all the Elkhorn Antique Markets this summer and fall, and maybe a Grayslake here and there.  We will be very busy.  Let's not forget all the junking trips we will be taking in between.  We have been gone every weekend for the last month and a half in search of great antiques, shabby, vintage farm and industrial to pass along to you.  I hope you join us in the next chapter of Tattered Tiques!
