Once John and the kids were on their way to Grandma and Papa's house, I headed to Lake Barrington to visit Tattered Tiques. I had gotten a taste of their style when I saw them at the Na-Da Farm Barn Sale last month. Their shop is a little off the beaten path, tucked away in an industrial area, but inside, it's full of personality and inspiration.
I loved all the different styles that were represented because most of us don't stick to one style when decorating our homes. We like a little of this and a little of that. There were retro items and antiques combined with handmade pillows and linens.
While they don't have regular business hours, they are open a few weekends each month and also by appointment. Plus, you can find them at antique markets and sales in the area. They will be open next Thursday, June 14-Saturday, June 16 from 10:00 until 3:00.
For more information on Tattered Tiques you can visit their website, blog, or find them on Facebook.
