BIG SALE – EVEN BIGGER CHANGES COMING!

newsletter 004Dear Friends,
When I started on this Chic Antiques journey, I didn’t have any idea what I was in for. I had a real passion for the thrill of the hunt, and the love of making something out of what most people would consider garbage. I decorated my home this way. Then I lost my job as an insurance adjuster; my friends encouraged me to open a store. I had no idea what to expect. Chic Antiques has grown beyond my wildest dreams! It never ceases to amaze me that you actually put my creations in your home, and tell your friends about me. It absolutely blows my mind that we have made the top 5 of Channel 4′s Best of the Best multiple times, and that we were voted the number one Antique store by the Oakland Press readers!
I am truly humbled and very, very grateful.

As my journey goes on, I have looked back at where it has taken me. I have realized that I am no longer the one out there treasure hunting. I miss that old thrill of the hunt. I don’t get to be as truly creative as I would like. I don’t get to interact with my customers nearly as much I used to do.. Many of you have become so much more than customers, most of you I consider a friend, and I miss you. It takes a lot more than I ever realized to run a store front. The more we have grown, the more time consuming all of the little details have become. It’s really like trying to run two households.

So, after A LOT of prayer and thought, I have decided to go back to basics. Many of you have been with me since I started out of my home. My personal life has also taken many directions over the past 5 1/2 years. We are now Oxford residents, and live very close to the shop – almost across the street on 10 acres. I now have a heated garage, and a lot more room. Yes, I am going home again.

I feel I will be able to devote more time to the part of my business that I love the most! I am going to host once a month sales at my house starting the second weekend in May. We will offer the same great services with the same smiling faces. In true Chic Antiques fashion, I plan to make each event a party worth attending, complete with all the “Chic Chicks” (vendors) and plenty of great food.

Starting Saturday, March 1st, everything in the store will be 20% off, and the sale will run through March 31st. Make sure to come often, as I will be bringing in new items daily. My plan is to empty the store out so that I can spend April getting ready for the first event. My goal has always been to have a totally different look each time you come into the store. That will continue to be my plan each time you attend a sale – something totally new when you come back every month.

I will continue to take “custom orders” of course, hopefully, even more. I have been asked by so many of you to come to your home and help out with color choices and furniture placement. This is something that I really enjoy doing, and I will have more time to help you with all of your decorating needs. I will be able to paint many more kitchen cupboards too! I will be offering painting classes and other classes as well, so tell me what you want to learn. I am really looking forward to this new chapter, and anxious to see where else this journey will take us. I think it will continue to be better than ever!

Make sure you “Like” us on Facebook to see all of the new arrivals. Check out our website too, http://www.UniqueChicAntiques.com, for more info. I will actually have more time to keep these better updated too. I will also be sending out a newsletter in April with all the details for the first sale on Friday, May 9th and Satuday, May 10th. We will continue to have our events on the second Friday & Saturday of each month, at least through November.
Thank you so much to each and every one of you, and I look forward to reconnecting with you at our new location!
Lori Schultz Bryan

The best sale ever starts now!

20% off – no exceptions!

EVERYTHING IS ON SALE!

Join us Friday, January 24th from 5-8pm                                                                    for our annual Customer Appreciation Night!

Friendly faces, wine, hot and cold hors d’oeuvres and yes, everything really is on sale! It’s our way of saying thanks for being such awesome customers all year. Stop in early for the best selection, because with our already great prices we don’t have a storewide sale very often!

IMG_1273 IMG_1286We are really enjoying the new stuff coming in daily, and the camaraderie of our new Chic Chicks business formula. Starting next month, we will be featuring one of our creative ladies each month here, and in our newsletter. We look forward to you getting to know each and every one of our artisans a bit better. If you aren’t signed up for our newsletter notifications, you can do it here and now! We won’t bombard you, just a once per month ‘What’s New’ notice.

Stop in soon for a great selection of Valentine’s Day gifts, or just a little piece of Amore for your decor! Yikes, did I just say that?!IMG_1271 IMG_1308 IMG_1263

We have also decided to stay true to our ‘reduce, reuse and recycle’ fundamentals and are phasing out our signature purple bags. Some of our artisans and regular customers have brought in gift bags and interesting shopping bags for packaging and it sure has been fun to see where they all come from.

And lastly, we would love to know what you want to see in our store. More of something you love, less of something you don’t, or something we just plain haven’t thought of yet! Email us, call us, or better yet, stop in and give us your input. Don’t forget to sign up for our Birthday Discount Card while you are here and have your own special shopping day!

If you are interested in large pieces of furniture, we have just finished up working on some beautiful buffets. We have a few styles right now, but you’ll have to hurry to check out the gorgeous pieces because they won’t last long!

Besides having furniture, Chic Antiques features vendors who sell their items through the store. A popular seller is the few different lines of jewelry we carry. Another favorite is the delicious smelling candles with scents such as Orange Spice, Very Vanilla, and White Lavender.
