June 1, 2 & 3 Weathered and Worn

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming "Wow! What a Ride!” ~Hunter S. Thompson

This is one of my favorite quotes and I think of it every time I come home with new bruises from an outdoor adventure. It seems that not only us but our homes should also tell a life story, weathered and worn has character and a history that bright and shiny does not. What is your favorite piece in your home? I bet it is not new but a family heirloom or a unique vintage piece that you discovered on a excursion with family or friends. Maybe a coffee table that was dragged back from a flea market in Minnesota with it's stained top from a life most likely in a workshop or barn and legs revealing shades of leftover blue, grey and white paint? If that coffee table could talk, it would also say what a ride....and now it is part of my story...   

See you this weekend for "Weathered and Worn".  Hoping you find that special piece that speaks to you, fits perfectly in your home, and comes with a great story. Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm.

April 6, 7, & 8 - Vintage Treasures (7th Anniversary!)

Seven. Lucky number seven. It's our seventh anniversary of doing this thing called the occasional sale. I'm not sure any of us would have thought that Re-Treat Design would become of a fixture on the calendar of so many of you and for seven years. We have had great fun bringing you "Vintage Treasures, artwork, and inspiration each and every month and we hope you continue to enjoy the ride along with us. And yes "Vintage Treasures" is our theme this month as at the foundation of every Re-Treat weekend are the interesting, sometimes quirky, but always changing vintage goods brought in by our vendors. Top those vintage finds with some great artwork and inspirational creations and you have Re-Treat Design! Thanks to all of you that have made our last seven years a tremendous adventure.

Hope you can come celebrate with us thisThursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm, and Saturday 10am-4pm!

March 2, 3 & 4 - Create "Your" Look

If someone asked, how would you describe your home?  What is your look? We are all fortunate to be able to pull inspiration from the bottomless distraction that we call the internet. Pinterest, Houzz, Etsy, etc. and then combine that with creative magazines, retail catalogs, and your friend down the road...it's always a challenge to know where to start on decorating your space. Fortunately in addition to this virtual world, we try at Re-Treat Design to bring you tangible inspiration that rotates each month and season. It's so much better to touch and feel, be part of your surroundings, and be able to bring that new find home. This month we challenge you to think about "your" look and if you are up to the challenge, tell us about by sharing through words and pictures on our facebook page. There's also preview pics on facebook to get you excited for this months opening!

Hope to see you Thursday 5pm-8pm, Friday 10am-6pm and Saturday 10am-4pm.
