Each month on Thursday we have a line of friends (customers) waiting to come in the door. It's exciting to see the smiles on your faces as you enter and explore the new vignettes seeking out fun things for yourself or for others. It really is a happy place of inspiration but also a place to recall memories as stories are shared around an old dresser that may remind you of your childhood. We love those stories. And since we flip the store each month, every opening you get to do discover all over again. We are grateful to be a part of your monthly calendar and we thank you for making Re-Treat a happy place.
Hope to see you Thursday 5-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm. Don't forget, we refresh and add new goods throughout the weekend!
And just like that, another month has gone by. Thanks to everyone that made it out in April for our anniversary celebration! It was great to see everyone and share in the excitement of six years of bringing you vintage finds, unique art, and inspiration. We are ready for our May Re-Treat Weekend and we hope you are too! So-many-unique-things-this-month.... Officially our theme is primitive paradise but there is definitely something for everyone. When you look up primitive in the dictionary you find this: relating to, denoting, or preserving the character of an early stage in the evolutionary or historical development of something. And a search for paradise yields: an ideal or idyllic place or state. So hope you can join us to seek out items with character in an idyllic place. See you Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and/or Saturday 10am-4pm. And here's a few preview pics just because....
It's time to give it another go...it's April Re-Treat Weekend. Not only that, it's also our 6th Anniversary! Yup, six years ago we decided to give this strange occasional idea a go and we still have folks lining up for thursday night's opening. That just warms our hearts. Thank you to all of our friends and customers for joining us on this fun adventure as we look forward to seeing each and everyone of you each month.
A small edit to our theme for April as apparently it will be April "Snow" Showers Bring May Flowers. Despite the snow outside we are bringing you spring and flowers and lots of new, fun things. Although it would have been entertaining to set up an entire winter display, just because :) We hope you can join us to celebrate our 6th anniversary of monthly vintage fun and inspiration. We will be announcing a few special events and giveaways over the weekend but you'll have to watch our facebook page to know what is in store for stopping in during our anniversary!
As usual: Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm. See you then!

It's that time of the year when a dose of winter is intermingled with the melting of snow. The weather could take a turn in either direction but even those that love winter start to feel the pull of spring with it's sunny skies and warm days. We are thinking of spring here at Re-Treat and welcome you in to explore all the new vignettes of soft colors, flowers, and fun finds. Hope you can join us! We are open Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm.
Yes, it's that time when Re-Treat returns from its annual but short lived hibernation. Every year we take January off to clean, patch, and paint the walls. After decorating for 12 events (multiple days) over the year, it's amazing the amount of holes in the walls that need some attention. The refresh is done, and the store is now all redecorated with lots of fun new finds for our February event "Welcome Home". We hope you can join us: Thursday 5-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm.
And while we are on the topic of the new year, be sure to mark your calendars for the rest of our 2016 events:

We are in the home stretch of 2015 with only two more Re-Treat weekends left! This weekend we have "All is Bright" and next weekend is our annual second December weekend "More Please". The holidays are always such a fun time at Re-Treat as we get to scatter glittery and shiny things throughout the store. Yes, we actually have a storage tote labeled glittery and shiny things and all those garlands, lights, etc. are helping to bring the "Bright". So many fun things this month including vintage, handmade, and repurposed, we are sure you won't see everything the first time through! And of course we will flip things around for one more go next weekend for "More Please" just in case you need a few more holiday gifts.
All is calm, all is bright .... See you Thursday 5-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and/or Saturday 10am-4pm!
And just like that, we are crossing the threshold of winter. The clocks have been turned back, the leaves have fallen from the trees, and now we begin our snow dance. Okay, maybe not everyone is doing a dance and looking forward to snow but it is coming, we know it is. So get ready, this month we bring you, "Jingle All The Way". We have lots of great holiday items and early holiday ideas at Re-Treat this month and of course the usual fun. Let the hunt for cozy gifts and decorative treasures begin!
And November goes,
with the last red berries
And the first white snows.
With night coming early,
And dawn coming late,
And ice in the bucket
And frost by the gate.
The fires burn
And the kettles sing,
And earth sinks to rest
Until next Spring."
~ Elizabeth Coatsworth
Yup! Tis' the Season! Come visit Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm. We refresh with new goods each and every day!
