December 9, 10 & 11 - "More Please"

We weren't sure how we'd pull it off but we are ready for weekend #2 of December, "More Please." You asked for it and I hope we delivered. There's lots of new items including birch bark and twig arrangements, adorable cedar deer, winter scene bark cloth pillows, new jewelry and of course our usual fresh finds. We've put some extra hours in turning the store over so it is once again new to you if you visited last weekend.

This Saturday we will also have Angela Carter from Alternative Chic giving a trunk show with more of her original recycled copper jewelry. It's a trunk show you don't want to miss plus she'll be taking custom orders if she doesn't have what you are looking for.

For more photos of this week's goods, jump on over to our Facebook Page.

Halloween then November

The days are shorter, the nights are cold and the leaves have left the trees. It's only a matter of time before winter snow blankets the ground...

You may not be ready for snow but we are already getting ready for November's traditions. Think dinner with family and friends...snowmen and santas...staying home by a warm fire.

Junk Heaven

If you haven't heard of Junk Bonanza, you have now. This once a year 3 day event, held in Shakopee, MN has changed our lives... Okay it hasn't changed our lives but we now know how we will spend part of our September in coming years. We were lucky enough to be asked to help work our friend Lori Miller's booth at the Bonanza. Lori is owner of Round Barn Potting Company in Andover, MN and if we need to pick one word to describe her (and her store), it would be "inspiring". We arrived on Wednesday to find a dozen birch trees, some two by fours and plywood turned into French shipping crates, 7 vintage dress forms, a couple gutted chairs, and many odds and ends transformed into a work of art. Some moss here, some beads there, and the space was beautiful! Here's a couple shots to give you a taste...

Throughout the show the three of us were able to rotate between working the booth and hunting for more goodies. We found lots of fun things and many new ideas amongst the 100+ booths. Here's a few random shots from the show...

And yes we brought back many goodies for Re-Treat's October there early so you don't miss out!

Thanks for a Great Weekend

We enjoyed all our visitors over the weekend. Thanks for the kind words and sharing your excitement while you explored the store. Also thanks for helping make some space by shopping Sunday's Flea Sale.

We'll once again be flipping the store around for September's "Autumn Splendor." Sorry but you'll have until the second weekend of the month as Labor Day Weekend is reserved for fun outdoors. Hope to see you then.

Opening Tomorrow @ 5pm (Thursday)

"It is easily overlooked that what is now called vintage was once brand new." What's great is that vintage finds are new to you.

We enjoyed everyone's excitement as they discovered the store for the first time or were returning guests. For those that don't know, we continue to restock treasures throughout the weekend so it's worth stopping back.
