it's beginning to look alot like...

the holidays... i love thanksgiving and wish it were not so close to christmas. i always feel as though it gets overshadowed...

having said that, being a retailer, it is a very difficult decision to promote christmas early but we need to address it... the time goes by so quickly and people love to begin shopping early... so, we have made a real effort to purchase items under $40, under $100, and on up to our luxury items and vintage one of a kind pieces from europe... something for everyone.

we are extending a 10% discount for all custom orders on matteo bedding, libeco belgian linens, and abyss towels. please know we need all orders by dec 5th to ensure timely arrival before the holidays.

we are going to offer a special 10% on all beta plus interior lifestyle books for the month of december....we have received the new 2010 collection ... they are incredible.. once you buy one of these amazing books... you have to own the whole collection...

we also have lovely items to trim your tree, set your tables or gifts to take to a holiday party.

lets us know how we can help you make it easier... so you have more time to spend with your families this season...

tis the season...for thanksgiving!

thanksgiving is fast approaching and it is always now when i wish november could stand still. i think it is one of my favorite months. everyone seems to get into the spirit of the holiday season making plans to be with family and friends and anxiously await the meal we wait all year for...
(why is that? i could eat it once a month!)

well we are in the thanksgiving mode at red ticking and i just love how this vignette came together.. the browns are just fabulous together. very fall... very thankful...
have a lovely weekend...

a dear and very wise friend (yes, sarah its you) who completely has the best taste in the world told me at least 2 years ago... "you need to add jewelry to your collection... you will not believe how much you will sell...people love jewelry!"

well, she loves it, i love it, all of my friends love it... so.... i tip toed and added a little sold. then i tipped a bit further... sold more...and now, i have JUMPED.

anniversary party...

i have to pinch myself. when i began my business 6 years ago, i was scared to death.
i only signed a year lease and prayed i would make it ... would people come? would they like the concept? well, years later i feel so blessed.
red ticking is becoming a lifestyle brand and continues to be a wonderful way to connect with people.

most important, i love what i do and try to encourage others in corporate or dead end jobs to take a leap of faith and follow their dreams.

i wish you all could join us for our 6th year anniversary party this thursday november 12th from 5-8 p.m. 20% of all proceeds of the day's total will go to OSB. operation school bell to clothe children in need. any of you in seattle, please stop by... i would love to see you!

it will truly be a joyous evening and a night to remember... thank you for all of your encouragement and support.

sincerely, pam

bread anyone?

one of my favorite things to collect are breadboards... and they are sooooo rare that to find one is like finding a pearl in an oyster or gold in a mine... they are priceless.
these lovelies are on their way from europe and i just can't wait to receive them...
i promise not to keep them all and put a few in red ticking for sale...
