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.
