Summer Trunk Show Series continues at Patricia Shoppe
Our summer trunk show series continues with a one week show of Laura Tanner Jewelry. LTJ is a newer collection to the shop but has quickly become a customer favorite after last year’s trunk show with her so we wanted to give customers plenty of time to stop in and see the entire collection. Erin Bosman, owner at Patricia Shoppe, and Laura met at the one of a kind show in Chicago and Erin knew right away Laura’s jewelry was a perfect fit for the shop. “The quality of her work, her dedication to her community, and creating a line of jewelry that is classically beautiful yet trend driven and affordably priced really reflects what Patricia Shoppe is known for,” says Bosman.
After earning her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in art history, Laura Tanner realized that making things was more fun than writing about them. So she found her way back to making jewelry, while also exploring new techniques and designs. Laura is drawn to the meditative, tactile, and often unpredictable process of creating jewelry, as well as to the innate natural beauty and subtle imperfections found in gemstones and metals.
Located just outside Chicago in Evanston, Illinois, Laura Tanner Jewelry is dedicated to quality, artistry, green practices, community engagement, and keeping production based in the U.S.A. The LTJ look is marked by the combination of exquisite gemstone beads and pearls with precious metals to create sophisticated, versatile jewelry that is at once contemporary and timeless. The beauty of her jewelry is that you can mix, match or layer pieces together, and thus over time build a coordinated collection of LTJ that suits your own personal style.
Laura Tanner Jewelry trunk show will be at Patricia Shoppe July 28- Aug 4th. The trunk show special will be 10% off any sale over $100 of LTJ jewelry & with each trunk show purchase customers will be entered into a drawing for a free piece.
Trunk Show Series runs along with the Annual Summer Sale of 30%-50% summer apparel, shoes & hats. Next weekend watch for info about our Anna Beck Trunk Show!
One of our favorite events of the year is this Saturday July 22. There will be booths in our yard filled with vintage items, retro jewelry, bags, clothes… you name it you’ll find it- these ladies are amazing junking stylists. Also some of our local makers will be here. See MaryBeth Mead’s beautiful re-purposed vintage jewelry collection- Lotus Jewel. And also always a Door County favorite watercolor artist Kari Anderson will be here painting and selling her watercolors, cards, and yes maybe some of her treasure hunting finds too. So stop by, sip lemonade, enjoy our gardens, find a treasure and…….. Come inside for our HUGE SUMMER SALE!! We just flipped the store around and put all summer apparel & shoes 30% off. The rest of the shop is now filled with transitional merchandise (we just don’t want to say the word ‘fall’ yet). What a day to shop here with a fun outdoor event, summer sale and all new merchandise you are sure to find something you love! Happy summer, happy shopping!
The first of our summer trunk show series is July 8th & 9th with Permanent Baggage. Permanent Baggage is a Milwaukee based indie fashion accessory label featuring urban and edgy handmade leather bags, leather and metal jewelry with a bohemian flair. Designer and maker Kamryn Boelk of Milwaukee will showcase her handmade collection of leather handbags, accessories and jewelry in the shop all weekend. Meet the designer Saturday July 8th from 10am-2pm.
Permanent Baggage began in 2007 as a public art project while Kamryn was attending the Milwaukee Institute of Art and Design. It was, at it’s core, an eco advocacy venture and now more than five years later has developed into a full time career as an independent accessory designer. She has a Bachelor of Fine Art degree in Sculpture with a minor in Design. This exposure has led to her passion for creating work in a variety of media including textiles, metal, leather, and wood.
Kamryn works full-time from her studio located in Milwaukee, WI and employs the help of a couple amazing part-time assistants. Her work can be found at art fairs throughout the state, boutiques throughout the mid-west, online and now at Patricia Shoppe.
“Our customers have really responded to this line so I wanted to introduce my customers to Kamryn, it’s always nice to meet the designer of a piece you buy. Plus featuring Midwest, specifically Wisconsin, artists has always been a focus of my shop, this line was a perfect fit for my shop” –says owner Erin Bosman
Patricia Shoppe’s summer trunk show series will include several other Midwest designers, including an outdoor pop up shop July 22nd. Check out our calendar of events for more details. Permanent Baggage collection is available at Patricia Shoppe but will include an expended selection for the weekend along with specials, giveaways, and an artist meet and greet. We are open every day 10am-7pm.

Yay its May! While we have already been open a month this is the month that it is truly Door County season. This month we see the half marathon, mother’s day, the cherry blossoms, and of course our anniversary- a great month! Can you believe this pic, I was so young and had no idea what was ahead- I wouldn’t change a thing. Thanks again for a great ride and help us celebrate with this little coupon.
Well hello April, its SOOOOOO nice to see you. We are now open everyday from 10am-5pm! We have had a nice winter of trade shows, getting projects done, and enjoying some time off, but we are very ready to see our customers everyday, share what fun things we found for you this season and to say goodbye to snow.
The store is filling up very quickly with many new spring items from fun florals, to classic stripes, laid back casual and dressy- this season has it all. We are seeing the graphic tee trend continue, prints have calmed down (last year they were everywhere) a lot the store is full of solid color tops in uber lush fabrics and textures, button downs, and layering pieces. Tunics and leggings have now exited the trend category and become a staple in everyone’s basic wardrobe so we have a nice variety of colors and shapes for you & created a basics section. As always our dress collection is the best around for weddings, graduation, showers…. we are your best stop for dress shopping.
We have a few new jewelry lines coming this spring and we are mixing up the looks. Last year we saw a lot of delicate layered pieces with geometric shapes (the bar necklaces…) we are still seeing this but bringing in some chunky pieces & colorful things too. Also everyone needs the hottest item- the leather choker. We of course have a handmade by a local artist style that can be worn 6 ways and doesn’t look like you’re wearing a teenage trend- very classy & pretty- its my favorite new jewelry item (and I’m turning 40 this year)!
We have two new purse collections that we can’t wait to share with you. Mona B is made from old army tents and Anna Nova is the hottest handbag designer in Australia, now selling in the US!
We are bringing back a customer favorite from years ago Lollia Life bath & body and possibly some other apothecary lines- what do you think of this coconut oil trend? We love it! Also planning a little girl shelving unit filled with fun hair accessories and handmade children’s jewelry no doubt inspired by our little Rita who is already 3 years old and fashionable as ever.
We have been working hard on a few things that we hope to announce later this spring (new website- styleboxes hand picked and shipped to you?!) As you can see its been a quiet, yet busy winter of planning and continuing to grow the shop. Starting our 17th year in business I would like to say- WOW what a journey! 17 is my lucky number, lets make this year a great one, hope to see you all soon! – Erin & the P.Shoppe gals.
Couldn’t make it to the store last week for our party- no worries, we have a great online sale for you this week. We are busy little elves working hard on adding a ton of new items to our site all week. Shop Friday ONLY for half off everything online, including sale items. Plus enjoy FREE SHIPPING. We are sorry but it will not include our everyday basics like leggings, camis, and long sleeve tees. We don’t have a super high tech site so we have to make them unavailable for the day of the sale in order for the coupon to work on your whole cart. BUT if you want some basics, please call the shop and we will be happy to take a phone order for regular priced items. We will be processing all orders as they come in on Friday and the rest Saturday. We will ship everything USPS insured with delivery before Christmas. We have limited quantities of items (some only one ofs!) So shop fast ladies, this stuff flies! Happy Holiday & thanks so much for being such great customers!
Yep you read it right- HALF OFF EVERYTHING!! We also have 70% off clearance items. (there is a small section of locally made items that are not included) Word of mouth is the best advertising and we hear from our customers all year long about their waitress, innkeeper, hair stylist, etc…. that sent them to Patricia Shoppe. So we would like to say thanks to all the local ladies that send people in throughout the year with our annual ONE DAY ONLY sale and party on a Wednesday (because most of us in the service industry are working on weekends). Stop in to celebrate another Door County season in the books, for us to wish you a Happy Holiday season, and to get some great deals too!! Of course non local ladies who just like to shop are welcome too. Happy Shopping friends. This Sale is in store only- but watch for our annual online sale next week!
