Sunday At Elkhorn

Elkhorn was great on Sunday!  The weather was beautiful, the shoppers were plenty, and we out did our previous numbers in sales for a market.  So many thanks to all our customers on Sunday, as well as the many customers we have had in the shop over the last few months!  We saw lots of old friends at the market, and made many new ones as well.  Here are some pictures to share, in case you didn't make it out on Sunday.

A great old Ice Cream Sandwich sign. Perfect for Summer!  It came out of an old amusement park.

Does this little gal look familiar?  She graced the cover of Country Living Magazine years back.

Can you see her on the mantel?  The glare makes it a little difficult.  This is the inside of the vendors home back in 2007.  The vendor, Rick, was the nicest guy ever!  He was so informative, and gave us lots of tips we will be sure to use.  Check out his website

I love this sign.  It is fabulous.

This was also in Rick's booth.  Anne was in love with this old metal vent top.  I can't believe she didn't go home with it!  How perfect for summer is the basket of soft balls?  So cute.

Rick and his wife are from Missouri.  They run a General store which sells primitive antiques, as well as wonderful hand crafted bird houses.  Be sure to check them out!

Gracie's Cottage anyone?  They had an awesome booth, which was very patriotic! These gals have a great blog you should check out.  Go to to find out where you can find them next.

More from Gracie's cottage.  I couldn't pass up a picture of the clocks.  You know how we love clocks here at Tattered Tiques.

Talk about Patriotic.  A few booths down from Gracie's Cottage, on the same side, were two more sweet gals, from Alma and Rosa Collectibles.

A little red white and blue for your summer kitchen?  They had a ton to choose from.

ELKHORN 061 (800x600) 
More from Alma and Rosa Collectibles.  Don't you just love these colors together. 

Two other nice gals to visit at the markets, are the Iowa Junk Gypsies.  They always have such great vintage finds.  Julie didn't have her camera when she stopped by for a visit, but check them out online.  They have a fantastic blog!

These handcrafted tables were awesome.  They were from another vendor who also graced the pages of Country Living Magazine.  Mike from Treasures and Trash is a really nice guy who is also a vendor at Junk Bonanza and Junk Jubilee.  He and his family are very talented artists!

Remember this?  If you read Country Living Magazine, you might recognize this picture.  This is Mike Brown.  For more on Country Living Magazine, visit

And now a little Tattered Tiques.  This blue dresser sold to the nicest couple.

Yeah! The chicken coop sold.  We were thrilled to not haul it back home.

ELKHORN 005 (800x600) 
This is an over all shot of our space.  We brought tons of great stuff to this market.  We also sold the Antique Hoosier Cabinet to the funniest guy and his wife.  So glad, it was a great piece, but too big for us to hall back and forth. 

Tattered Tiques will be back at Elkhorn on August 14th.  We will also be open the weekend after the 4th of July.  July 7th, 8th, and 9th.  We hope to see you there!  Thanks again to all the shoppers at the market, and especially to all the devoted Tattered Tiques Shop shoppers!!  In the mean time, we will all be spending the week of the 4th up in Eagle River at the cabin.  Hopefully we will find tons of great treasures in the north woods to share with you at our next sale!  See you then.
