The Tattered House

I finally made it to The Tattered House last week on our way home from Lake Tahoe.

Now that I know what an easy detour, and charming town Roseville is, you can be sure I will check in with my girls Erika & Sandy every time I head up or come back from Lake Tahoe!

I used to have to wait for the 1st Sunday of every month to see them at The Alameda Pointe Antiques & Collectibles Fair.

 I've been trying for the longest time to come visit their Tattered House.


I finally made it and let me tell you, it was sooo worth the wait!

Sometimes things are even better than you imagine which was the case when I stepped inside this beautifully merchandised and edited shop full of curated treasures.
It is owned and run by Erika Friend and Sandy Bryan who have transformed this sweet little turquoise house in historic downtown Roseville into a destination for fabulous antiques and vintage goods.

What struck me immediately as I stepped inside The Tattered House was how inspired each room was.

I felt like I was in a high end boutique surrounded by one of a kind objects and treasures that were styled in ways that truly inspired me.

 I was immediately drawn into the space of their newest vendor, platanitis.

 I was awestruck by his eye and obvious talent and the way in which he styled his Vintage Home & Garden Goods.

The rest of the photos are taken of his room at The Tattered House.

Turned out he was selling at The Alameda Pointe yesterday! 

He's uber talented and beyond charming!

His name is Garret Platanitis, hence the name.

So if you can't make it to The Tattered House in Roseville anytime soon, you can always find these talented folks selling their treasures the 1st Sunday of the month at The Alameda Pointe Antiques & Collectibles Fair.

Be sure and check their websites for their locations and space #'s each month.

I will be back tomorrow with more eye candy from The Tattered House.  It's just too good to see all at once!

I can not get over how many fabulous finds are tucked into the Tattered House! I really love that old globe!

Just a plus that it's in a town named after the rose!

Terri there is nothing more fun in blogland than following you along on your journeys. I'll take two mustaches, the St. Germaine bottle and the slipper chair please. I cannot wait for more. Thank you, thank you for your very wonderful comment the other day. I would give anything to be able to spend some time with you. The good news, showings are picking up with the house, so fingers & toes crossed. I need to send you an email & soon.

Hugs to you my friend, xx

What an interesting shop! I have heard of The Tattered House but haven't been there. Sometime when we talk remind me to tell you of my connection to Roseville. I really must visit the town and this shop. Thanks, Terri for a fun tour!

I didn't even know about this shop and I live on the other side of the city from it!!! It takes a good 45mins-1hr for me to get to Roseville but thats not far! I will have to go. I love the tattered chair with torn black leather seat and all the sea urchans and starfish. Did you get anything?
