December 1, 2, & 3 Yule Love This! AND December 8, 9, & 10 More Please!

Yes it is pretty much December and yes there is two weeks of Re-Treat this month! It's our annual holiday extravaganza with Re-Treat busting at the seems with fun things, great finds, and inspiration. Our vendors really knocked it out of the park for December so we know you will find something cool for you and maybe a gift or two to give.   Come visit Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm. We will be refreshing throughout the weekend and will be bringing you new things during week two for More Please! And with that a quote about snow, because well snow...we need it!  "Flakes, flurries, swirls, crystals, whatever form it comes in. I'll take it. We go back, snow and me. We have a beautiful history." ~Lorelei Gilmore

We hope you are able to enjoy a lot of time with friends and family during the holiday season. See you soon! (And don't forget that we are closed in January for our annual break and deep cleaning of the shop.)

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, witches...in 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. 

Open Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm.

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.

August 4, 5, & 6 - Re-Treat Flea

Re-Treat Flea! It's that time of the year when we mark down goodies that have been hanging around a little too long or we are just tired of seeing. It's also the weekend that we take the fun outside on Saturday by inviting our friends to set up their own booths. This weekend we will have our regular occasional sale on Thursday 5pm-8pm and Friday 10am-6pm, then on Saturday our outside market and shop will be open 10am-4pm.  Always a good time with fun people and fun finds. This is a can't miss event. Hope you can join us!

Here's a couple previews of this month's vignettes.

July 7, 8, & 9 - Star Spangled Summer

Yay summer! It always seems so far off as we are watching the world around us turn green in May then boom just like that it's 4th of July and we've already mowed the lawn four times.  I actually think we may have skipped June. On the plus side, sometime in the last few weeks we have flipped the shop and it is ready for our July Re-Treat opening.  This month we bring you lots of fun finds, some great new paintings, beautiful furniture, and original things.  As always, join us July 7th-9th (post 4th festivities) and explore what's new this month. Open Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm.

And a few sneak peeks...

Classy in white.  

Pretty in purple. 

Turquoise highlights. 

Kitchy goodness. 

More pics will be posted soon on Facebook.  Have a great 4th of July!

June 2, 3 & 4 - We Are Your Happy Place!

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!
