April 6, 7, & 8 - Vintage Treasures (7th Anniversary!)

Seven. Lucky number seven. It's our seventh anniversary of doing this thing called the occasional sale. I'm not sure any of us would have thought that Re-Treat Design would become of a fixture on the calendar of so many of you and for seven years. We have had great fun bringing you "Vintage Treasures, artwork, and inspiration each and every month and we hope you continue to enjoy the ride along with us. And yes "Vintage Treasures" is our theme this month as at the foundation of every Re-Treat weekend are the interesting, sometimes quirky, but always changing vintage goods brought in by our vendors. Top those vintage finds with some great artwork and inspirational creations and you have Re-Treat Design! Thanks to all of you that have made our last seven years a tremendous adventure.

Hope you can come celebrate with us thisThursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm!

March 2, 3 & 4 - Create "Your" Look

If someone asked, how would you describe your home?  What is your look? We are all fortunate to be able to pull inspiration from the bottomless distraction that we call the internet. Pinterest, Houzz, Etsy, etc. and then combine that with creative magazines, retail catalogs, and your friend down the's always a challenge to know where to start on decorating your space. Fortunately in addition to this virtual world, we try at Re-Treat Design to bring you tangible inspiration that rotates each month and season. It's so much better to touch and feel, be part of your surroundings, and be able to bring that new find home. This month we challenge you to think about "your" look and if you are up to the challenge, tell us about by sharing through words and pictures on our facebook page. There's also preview pics on facebook to get you excited for this months opening!

Hope to see you Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-4pm.

November 3,4, & 5 - It's a Marshmallow World

Some of us can't wait for the snow to arrive and with it the excitement of the holiday season! Re-Treat this month has made it's annual slide into winter with our theme "It's a Marshmallow World". Yes, the joy of another change of seasons is upon us and Re-Treat is ready with snowmen, and trees, and more snowmen, as well as great gifts and the usual fun finds. We hope you have some time to stop by and help us usher in the holiday season! Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm. 

Now sing along with us and our favorite crooners: 

It's a marshmallow world in the winter
When the snow comes to cover the ground
It's the time for play, it's a whipped cream day
I wait for it the whole year round.

Those are marshmallow clouds being friendly
In the arms of the evergreen trees
And the sun is red like a pumpkin head
It's shining so your nose wont freeze.

The world is your snowball, see how it grows
That's how it goes whenever it snows
The world is your snowball just for a song
Get out and roll it along...

October 6, 7, & 8 - Double Toil and Trouble

'Doubledouble toil and trouble, fire burn and cauldron bubble' is one of the most famous lines in English literature. Do you know where it's from and who spoke it?  Yup, one of Shakespeare's most famous works. The words apply as we toiled to get the shop ready for this weekend and as usual we hope for you to find some trouble (make than fun) this weekend.  

Fall is pushing out the doors with autumn decor and pumpkins galore. Be sure to stop in Re-Treat and visit in between getting out to enjoy the quickly changing colors.

September 8, 9, & 10 - Autumn Blessings

Hello, Autumn. It's nice to see you again. While it has been a lovely, long summer, we always look forward to the colors of fall. Yes, there are hints of colors amongst the trees and the vibrant green of summer is giving way to what will be a beautiful vibrant explosion of color. At Re-Treat, we have boxed up the remnants of summer including the pink colors and flowery finds and have replaced them with shades of orange and pumpkins galore (a preview of things to come).

The change of season is a welcome reminder of our fortunate life in Michigan's Upper Peninsula.  Hope to see you for Re-Treat's "Autumn Blessings".  We will be open Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm.

Lots of preview pics are up on our Facebook page!
