"Winter Wishes" - November 29, 30 & December 1

“Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home.” ― Edith Sitwell

 Re-Treat is here, already, again and for two weekends this month! We will be open Thursday night 5-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-4pm and we'll do it all over again next week. It's a focus on home this month with holiday vignettes throughout the store. It's hard not to think about the holidays as the outside is blanketed with snow and the lake effect machine seems to have been turned on. Come on in from the cold to "Winter Wishes" and enjoy exploring our little wonderland at Re-Treat. Oh - and don't forget to do it all over again next week at "More Please"!

Wishing you and yours a happy and healthy holiday season. And just a reminder - Re-Treat closes up for the month of January. Yes, we know you'll miss us but we use January to clean, purge, paint and to get ready for a new year.

"Holly Daze" - November 1, 2 & 3

Every year, I think we all wish the warm fall days would last for ever. I'm afraid it 'tis the change of seasons. Yes snow is falling... You know what that means? Re-Treat Design is all decked out for winter. We've got a little bit of Thanksgiving and a whole lot of Christmas, complete with an all white room. Hope you can join us for our Holly Daze weekend. We have warm scarflettes, funky snowmen, winter candle scents, homemade dog biscuits, and much, much more so you can start checking friends and family off the holiday shopping list.
More preview pictures are available on facebook.

"Colors of Autumn" - September 6, 7 & 8

"Everyone must take time to sit and watch the leaves turn." ~Elizabeth Lawrence We don't know anyone that doesn't enjoy the changing landscape as it transitions from green to brown and everything in between. Orange, yellow, browns, reds...these are the colors of Autumn. We are excited to be in the approach to winter (yes winter)and to change Re-Treat over for the fall season. This month we are celebrating the end of summer with pumpkins, leaves, crows, scarecrows, oh my...and we hope you can join us. If you are wondering what is new this month, all you need to know is Christine has been hard at work on her wonderfully ghoulish fun fall creations. And of course we have the usual assortment of vintage finds and inspiration. Wander in and visit this weekend and enjoy Re-Treat Design's "Colors of Autumn".

"Primitive Pastimes" - July 5, 6 & 7

"I think the reason that people like primitive decorating is that it takes them back to a simpler time. That is one reason why antiques are so popular. I know they are collectible, too, but for the most part, the rustic country look is homey and comfortable." When we think about primitives, it conjures up a wide range of things from a well worn cabinet to a tattered teddy. What it is really about is items that have been loved. This month is "Primitive Pastimes" and is all about showing the love for simpler times and simpler things. We have many wonderful items and ideas this month at Re-Treat and we welcome you to come explore and make a few laps so you don't miss anything.

"Summertime Salute" - June 7, 8 & 9

'Tis yet another time of year that we love...blooming flowers, long days and sunshine...it is the beginning of summer. This month's theme is "Summertime Salute" as we feature many of the things that make us love summer. Bright colors, garden art and fun flea market finds are featured in and outside Re-Treat. We hope you can join us once again this month and enjoy our summer vignettes.

"Forever Cottage" - May 3, 4, & 5

"Cottage decorating is a mixture of light colors, comfortable fabrics and furniture and accessories that is easy on the eyes with a vintage appeal." It is one more way to decorate any type of home but provide the ambience of a 'cottage'. The word cottage conjures up a place where you desire to spend time with friends and family, doing whatever activity you love. This month Re-Treat is sharing our cottage-style finds with you. We have to say we are really full, so plan to spend some extra time doing an extra lap or two of the store to see everything.

"Long Live Vintage" - April 5, 6 & 7

"It is easily overlooked that what is now called vintage was once brand new."
~Tony Visconti

We believe that there are things that are just old and there are things that are timeless and deserving of the title "vintage". To call something vintage, just means it has a little more character, a little bit of charm and a little bit of history. Everything in Re-Treat each month has a story all its own. Sometimes we know the story, sometimes we don't but we do know the story will live on. Each time you take home a special item, you are continuing the story and sharing the love of vintage with your friends and family. Yes, we know...not everyone gets "it". That's okay, you can always join others that do each month at Re-Treat...Long Live Vintage!

"Re-Organize" - March 1, 2 & 3

Nothing makes you feel better than a well-organized home. Vintage goods are a great way to clean up that mud room, sort paperwork or get those coats under control. This month we have a wonderful assortment of wire baskets, primitive hook boards, organizers and a large armoire just waiting to go home with you. It's also that time when we start thinking about spring flowers...so despite the large piles of snow outside, there is a little spring love thrown in!

"Winter Comforts" - February 2, 3 & 4

Winter is the time for comfort, for good food and warmth, for the touch of a friendly hand and for a talk beside the fire: it is the time for home. ~Edith Sitwell

We enjoy the falling snowflakes, the brisk air and a newly groomed ski trail but we also enjoy cozying up with a good book, hot chocolate in hand, and enjoying the comforts of home. See you this weekend as we reopen for 2012....featuring candlelight, wool blankets, Valentine's goodies and winter comforts for you and your home.

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