Hello to all you "Vintage Girls" out there! We are so excited to be a part of this new series on Coastal Charm. Kudos to Linda for featuring small shops and vintage booths. We all work so hard, and any support we get is greatly appreciated! We were so honored that she picked us to be featured.
Tattered Tiques is located in Lake Barrington, Illinois. We are a mom and two daughters who love to travel and gather the perfect vintage finds to share with all the other vintage lovers out there.
We have been collecting and antiquing together for more than 10 years. We started our business by doing antique, flea and vintage markets. After a few years, we decided to look for a space to sell our wares out of.....three years later, we are still here. The shop is only open a couple weekends a month, as well as every Tuesday. On off weeks, we travel the Midwest in search of new finds for the shop.
Each weekend we are open, we try to have new inventory for our customers. And most antique pieces are one of a kind, or close to it. This antique column base for instance, had 2 others like it by its side. The all flew out the door first thing!
At Tattered Tiques, we have a nice mix of antique, shabby, vintage, farm and industrial, with a little bit of handmade mixed in too. We recently introduced our new "Vintage Girl" line, which we are really excited about.
We have super cute and comfy t-shirts and flea market totes. Perfect for a day of junking, picking, or flea marketing!
We even have adorable necklaces and candles, which make the perfect gift!
We like to change things up for holidays and seasons. Bringing a mix of antiques, handmade, and even a little bit of retail for the holidays.
We carry one of the most beautiful and inspiring magazine for antique lovers.....Jeanne d'Arc Living. It is filled with page after page of dreamy photographs. We sell Jeanne d'Arc at the shop, as well as online at our Etsy shop, which often has back issues for sale.
We keep our customers current on shop openings, current travels, and new finds on our website, TatteredTiques.com, our blog, Tatteredtiques.blogspot.com, and Facebook.
We even offer classes in hopes of getting our customers hooked on these amazing paints!
We hope you enjoyed taking a sneek peak inside Tattered Tiques! Hopefully you local gals get a chance to come for a visit and see what we're all about. Or, visit us online! Stop by our blog to see what's new at the shop, or visit us on Facebook to keep current on our weekend travels and new finds. If you love Vintage markets, come see us at the Urban Farmgirl's Main Street Market on May 10th in Rockford Il, or at the City Farmhouse Pop-up Show next October! Thanks again to Linda for including us in such a great venture!
