Peace. Joy. Noel. - December 5, 6 & 7 and More Please - December 12, 13 & 14

December already?  We are not sure where the months have gone but we have reached the end of our 2013 openings.  It is our final stretch of the year, open two weekends this month with a whole lot of Christmas mixed with some great vintage finds and gifts for the holiday season.  Yes, we did say two weekends so if you don't get your fill during Peace. Joy. Noel., you can come on back for More Please next weekend. 

This month is a time for relaxing with family (Peace), taking in and celebrating the season (Joy) and of course gathering for the holiday (Noel).  We thank you for finding time to gather with us as part of your monthly ritual and bringing your enthusiasm each and every month.   Hope you enjoy our offerings for this holiday season and we look forward to continuing to be your Re-Treat from the ordinary and a source of inspiration as we move into another year.

Peace. Joy. Noel.

Sparkle and Shine - November 7, 8 & 9

We have reached the week that we suddenly lose an hour of light at the end of the day. Whose idea was that anyway?  It seems that this is one week that we find it hard to motivate. Have no fear, Re-Treat is here!  Despite the short days and downright miserable fall weather we are looking forward to the holidays with lots of sparkle and shine coming at you starting thursday (5-8pm).  I have to say the shop is looking spectacular thanks to one of us working hard while one of us was playing on their mountain bike in Utah.

We hope you can join us as we usher in the holiday season.  There's lots of artsy-craftsy events going on this weekend in addition to Re-Treat, so be sure to make the rounds.  See you Thursday 5-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-4pm.

All Hallows Eve - October 3, 4 & 5

October is
when night guzzles up
the orange sherbet sunset
and sends the day
to bed
before supper
October is when jack-o’-lanterns
grin in the darkness
strange company crunches
across the rumple of dry leaves
to ring a doorbell.
October is
when you can be ghost,
a witch,
a creature from outer space…
almost anything!
And the neighbors, fearing tricks,
give you treats.
~Bobby Katz
Join us for our October Re-Treat this Thursday.  Featuring: witches, pumpkins, scarecrows and fun things...oh my! 

Lots more to see on our facebook page!

Fall Fest - September 5, 6 & 7

Are you ready?  Ready for cool temperatures, fall colors and shorter days?  We have to admit that we love fall.  As much as we are sad to know the long summer days are behind us, we look forward to changing Re-Treat over to oranges, yellow, browns, pumpkins and fun halloween creations.  The store is overflowing with great furniture, fall decorations and vintage finds.  Join us September 5, 6 & 7 and see how we have transformed the store to fall.

Let the Sun Shine In - July 11, 12 & 13

Open the blinds and let the sun shine in...it's summer!  July in the U.P. and it actually feels like it. This is the time of the year to expand your decorating horizons to include your outdoor space.  Why shouldn't your deck, porch, etc. be an extension of your indoor space?  We love when you can open the sliding door and step into your own little oasis....correction:  your own little Re-Treat.    A collection of mismatched chairs, some carefully selected pieces of found items and a salvaged shipping crate potting bench can make your space.  Yes please!  We have lots of new pieces...come visit and see if we have the perfect one to complete your collection.

Weathered Charm - May 2, 3 & 4

What is the favorite piece of furniture in my newly remodeled house? It's an easy answer. My favorite piece of furniture is an old farm bench that is repurposed as my coffee table.  I found the piece when we were first hunting for Re-Treat goods at a random flea market in Minnesota for $40 and I knew right away it was coming home with me.  It's top is worn barn wood and the edges and legs are layered with white, turquoise and blue paint that time and wear has revealed.  Would I consider repainting it?  Not a chance! 

Do you have a favorite piece or is it waiting for you at Re-Treat? "Weathered Charm" is throughout the store this month with some great furniture pieces, yard art and more. In addition we consigned local artist Dominic Fredianelli to create some spring inspired original artwork including canvas paintings and graffiti art turned into pillows.  As always, one-of-kind items and artwork, come early and come back as we restock throughout the weekend.   

As always, more pictures can be found on facebook.

Re-Blooming - April 4,5 & 6

Last year we had yard art out for our April Re-Treat, this year piles of snow remain....  So much for our theme this month. That's okay, there is plenty of bright colors inside re-treat to make you think of Spring.  And I won't forget to mention we have have candles that smell like fresh cut grass for those of you that are really needing a pick me up.  Our vendors rocked it this month with lots of great fun things, big and small. 

Hope you can join us as we will be celebrating our 3rd Anniversay of bringing you a monthy Re-Treat from the everyday store.  We will have goodies out on Thursday night for all who can stop by.  Open Thursday 5-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-4pm.

At least that's what we are told.  See you this weekend......

"Longing for Spring" - March 7, 8 & 9

"Spring is when you feel like whistling even with a shoe full of slush." ~ Doug Larson

It's March and it's the time when everyone starts looking forward to and longing for spring. We've survived the cold, yet beautiful winter months enjoying the falling snow but now it's time for think about flowers, birds singing and bright colors. We've got lots of fun things this month to get your home looking and feeling like the upcoming spring. New bark cloth pillows, a great mint green table with floral chairs, a room of all white, Easter goodies and of course much much more. Have I mentioned we are longing for spring? Come and enjoy exploring Re-Treat's vision for Spring this weekend. Hope to see all our Re-Treat family old and new!
