Shop Girl is One today!!

Our shop girl Mary Jane is One Year's Old today! 

She is the cutest Tattered Tique at the shop, and probably works harder than her Aunt GiGi! 
At the shop she.....
Checks customers out....more than Aunt GiGi....
She works her stations.....
She stocks shelves.....
She makes messes.....
She takes selfies......
And she melts hearts.
Happy Birthday Meem! We love you!

I Wheelie love this display idea!

Looking for a cute way to display some sweet valentines?  

I saw this idea on Pinterest and decided to try it with some old wheels we had at the shop.

I love the way it turned out! This would be so cute hanging from a door, or leaning up against a mirror on a mantel.

If you're looking for some vintage valentines, or a fun way to decorate for Valentines Day, stop by the shop next weekend.  We've got plenty of vintage love to fill your February 14th!

Beautiful Clutter

It's no secret that I am a hoarder......of magazines and books.  I have gobs and gobs of them kept for inspiration.  I can't imagine how much money a year I spend on them.  The problem is I never really find the time to set aside and do something with all that inspiration.
 This is what I'd call "beautiful clutter". They are, in the mean time, not inspiring me, but taking up space. Once I clean my desk off, I hope there is still room for them.  They really are eye candy if you ask me.  I should mention that......I'm not making any money on Etsy.  I stink at creative display, and decorating.  I'm certainly not a Junk genius.  I'm the least organized person I know, and most days I feel like my husband and I are the only things around here that have "patina".  I do however have the Savannah Blues, a Salvage Sister, and terrariums in need of "new" plants.  Hopefully once I'm all put back together, I'll have some time to dive into these beautiful books and put all that inspiration to good use!

What inspires you?  Do you spend hours digging in books and magazines?  Or are you a Pinterest junkie? 
I'm off to the shop now. Have a great weekend everybody.  We are off this weekend on another picking trip.  Fingers crossed.

Vintage Girl

Attention, Attention!! Calling all Vintage Girls!  We are super excited this week to finally have all our "Vintage Girl" items together. 
If I could broadcast it across the airwaves I would.  I am thrilled to finally have.......wait for it.....

I have wanted to offer Tattered Tiques t-shirts for a while years.  But my inner voice (Anne) told me no one would buy one.  So we played it safe and had Vintage Girl put on the shirts.  After all, most of us are either "vintage" or love vintage, right?  We also took a while and made sure we picked the perfect shirt to work with.  These are very comfy and are very forgiving.  If you're like us,  forgiving is very important when it comes to fit.

Since we are in love with, and hope to someday have, a vintage truck, we thought it only appropriate to have one as our new logo.

And to make shopping the markets easier, we thought you should have a cute tote on your shoulder.  These are a nice canvas and have a very sturdy black strap. 

For those of you who haven't been to the shop in the last few months, we even offer Vintage Girl candles. 

These candles come in a sweet little muslin bag.  Perfect for gift giving! We thought they were so cute when we came across them, and had some special made for us to say "Vintage Girl". 

And, we can't forget our favorite Vintage Girl accessory.

The Vintage Girl and Vintage Love necklaces, made by the very talented Beth Quinn.  These also make adorable gifts for a favorite friend who loves antiques and vintage.  

These come with either an old truck or vintage style trailer. 

Well, there you have it. Something to wear to the antique and vintage markets next time you go.  A little bling for around your neck, and the perfect little tote to hold your new finds.  When you get home after a long day of walking, and hauling junk, you can relax with your Vintage Girl candle.  Sounds like the perfect day!  Well, maybe a glass of vintage wine would top it off.
I also have our 2014' Tattered Tiques Antique and Vintage market calendars this week.  We want to make sure you don't miss any local markets this year!

Please let us know if you have any questions about anything.  We do ship if you're not close by.  T-shirts are $22 and come in grey, charcoal black, or brown, totes are $14, candles are $12, and necklaces are $44.  Have a great weekend. We are open, so stop by!
