For the Love of Summer - June 4, 5, & 6

Lilacs are blooming and the mosquitos are out. Yes, it's early summer in the Keweenaw. The Re-Treat girls and our vendors have been out hunting down new finds for this month's opening.  While many people look forward to summer because of sun, flowers, beaches, etc., we actually look forward to summer because of rummage sale season.  It's not easy bringing you fun things each month, but it is much easier this time of the year as people are cleaning out their houses, garages, and barns!  What's the secret?  No secret, you just need an eye for the special pieces.

With all the great pieces we've been finding, we think the shop has come together rather nicely this month. If you are looking for great furniture there are some particularly funky pieces and vignetted among those pieces are lots of fun finds.  Be sure to shop early as one of a kinds are just that, one of a kinds. For the Love of Summer:  Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm,  and Saturday 10am-4pm.  

See you soon.

Hunt & Gather - May 7, 8 & 9

We are back again and with loads of fun things! We were a little worried after last month's anniversary sale that we wouldn't have enough stuff for May, well guess what...Our artists and vendors delivered and the shop is overflowing for Hunt & Gather Weekend. Yes, kind of sounds like a fall theme but it is our theme.  A big part of the fun in putting together the store each month is finding cool items (the hunt).  The second half of the equation is collecting (the gather) and putting them together for you to have a fun time shopping Re-Treat.  Vintage shopping at it's finest, hope you have some time to stop and take it in! 

Of course Thursday is always the best selection but we always hold some fun things back in order to refresh through out the weekend.  

Thursday 5pm - 8pm
Friday 10 am - 6 pm
Saturday 10 am - 4pm 

Here's a few preview pics!  As always there's more to see on Facebook




Hope to see you Thursday night!

Farmhouse Fun - April 9, 10 & 11

It's our Anniversary! For five years we've been bringing you vintage finds, artwork, and fun things all rolled up into sweet vignettes in hopes of inspiring you and your home decorating. Yes, five years already.   I think we've been successful as each month we have a line of excited customers waiting in anticipation of the Thursday night opening.  Each month our reward is seeing your excitement when you find that special treasure.  Re-Treat feels extra full for our 5 year anniversary, possibly due to a few more days of finding goodies and making fun things or just being extra inspired by the warmer days and sunshine.

Thursday night we'll have some sweets out for our customers to celebrate the anniversary and we will also be having a special drawing each day for those that stop by to check out Farmhouse Fun.  If you have friends that haven't yet been to Re-Treat, it would be a great month to bring them along and let them in on the fun.

See you soon! Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm.

Think Spring - March 5, 6 & 7

Think Spring! Yup we said it. There may be 5 feet of snow on the ground but inside Re-Treat there's flowers, bunnies and bright colors.  Seasons are why many of us love this part of the country.  In the summer we look forward to the colors of fall, in fall we wait for the falling snow and in the spring, we are ready for warmth and sunshine.  At Re-Treat we get to bring in the seasons a little early, kind of a reminder of what is soon to be.  Come join us as we think Spring this Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-4pm.  Lots of fun things and a preview of summer await!

Be Inspired - February 5, 6 & 7

"The way to stay inspired and motivated is by doing what you like, doing what you love."

It's the new year and we are back this week with "Be Inspired".  Yup,  we missed you and hopefully you missed your regular dose of Re-Treat. One thing we really enjoy each month is the excitement on our customers faces as they are inspired by something in the store.  It might be a simple idea or something they remember from their childhood, but it brings a spark of excitement and it makes what we do a lot of fun.  As an occasional store, we get to (actually love to) flip the store for each opening as it inspires us, inspires our customers and adds something unique that you will not find in a regular brick and mortar shop. We hope you can join us as we kick off your monthly inspiration for 2015!    

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

See you soon!

Deck the Halls - December 4, 5 & 6

Ho ho ho...it's the holiday season!  I'm not sure where November has gone but I think it disappeared under all that snow.  Fortunately we're ready with an escape from the cold and snow with two weekends of Re-Treat: Deck the Halls this weekend and More Please next weekend.  We've got lots of great home decor, stocking stuffers and more from our artists and vendors, new and returning.  It's always exciting to see the store come together and we think you'll enjoy doing laps and taking it in and snagging unique finds this month.  Stop in Thursday starting at 5pm for the best selection.  Open Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-4pm this weekend and next.  See you then!

Dashing Through the Snow - November 6, 7 & 8

Yes, yes...we know everyone is not ready for it, nor is everyone in love with it, but it is that time of year! Winter is almost here!  Dashing through the snow might be a little optimistic but we have had our first dusting of snow for the season.  Christine has been doing her snow dance since spring so if you want to blame anyone for what's to come....   

At Re-Treat we have morphed into full-on winter/Christmas mode with a few lingering vignettes of fall. Some time we will have to do a time lapse photo sequence of the transformation of the store from one month to the next to document the transition.  We wish it was as easy as leaves falling off and snow falling down.   That said, lot's of great things are waiting for you this month:  snowmen of all varieties, unique jewelry, handmade soap, local honey, all sizes of furniture, etc.  The shop is full and hopefully something fun is waiting for you.  Even if just for inspiration or an escape from the cold, come see us Thursday 5-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-4pm!
