Open for Business!!

IMG_0921
We are officially open for business!!!  This is a picture of our sign...it hadn't been hung yet at the time of the picture, but if you come out, you'll see it proudly hanging over our door!  As always, it features our "tattered terrier."  Mom did the sign herself...how you ask? I have no idea, but she did an AMAZING job!

Here's a glimpse of the main area of the shop(warehouse).

Our favorite piece by far is the numbered cabinet in the back. It came from a farm in Iowa. It would look fabulous in someone's mud room or back hall. I wish I had a mud room or a back hall!

I love the colors in this corner of the room.  They play off the vintage classroom map on the wall. We picked up the map in Lake Geneva, the trunk in Eagle River, Wisconsin, and the pink pie safe in Maiden Rock, Minnesota....yes our wares come from everywhere!

This is a picture from our smaller room.  We picked up this old farm table in Kenosha.  Aren't the ruffled stools the cutest?  Yet another one of mom's ideas.  They are so fab.

There's Chanel...our dress form...she stands proudly in the center of the room under our fabulous lights. Yes, we named our dress forms, and no, she's not for sale.


 


Please try and come out and see us!  We've worked so hard to pull this off, and would love for our "pretend" shop to become real!  You can make it real!  


We will be open Thursday and Friday from 10-5 and on Saturday from 10-3.  Check our website for more info- www.tatteredtiques.com.  Hope to see you soon!
