Barrington, Illinois Steeplechase Antiques

66. Stop at Steeplechase Antiques

Home Newsroom 66. Stop at Steeplechase Antiques

There’s something curiously inviting about Barrington’s Steeplechase Antiques. It’s a small shop just west of Lageschulte right on Barrington’s Main Street and it has caught my eye a million times.

Barrington, Illinois Steeplechase AntiquesMaybe it’s the name. Before she moved to her Main Street location, owner Karrin DaBoll first ran her antiques business out of her Barrington Hills barn on Steeplechase Road. Maybe it’s the location.

Tucked away in a nondescript space on the way into Barrington Hills, Karrin’s shop is easy to miss, but so much fun to find.  She grew up in Barrington, loves that her business is so close to home and spends her days outside the “office” searching for treasures for her store.  Her inventory changes every week because she’s always on the hunt for new pieces. When Karrin hits the road, she travels with a 16-foot trailer to fit all her new finds.

She hits estate sales, auctions, wholesale dealers, antique shows and flea markets in Southern Wisconsin, Michigan, Indiana and throughout Illinois. She loves finding unique pieces of antique furniture, artwork, lighting, garden items and she has an eye for unique and eclectic home accessories.

You’ll find Steeplechase Antiques at 425 West Main Street in Barrington.  The shop is open Friday and Saturdays from 11-5PM and she’s open on some Thursdays, too.  If you are looking for anything in particular, you can call Karrin at the shop at 847-833-6946.  She’s very knowledgeable about antiques and would be happy to help.

  1. Hi Karrin

    I have an old kitchen table with chairs ( i think it is old) that I purchased from a flea market. I did refinish it and added some paint to the legs of the table and chairs. I would like to sell it but I am not sure if you are interested in it. Please let me know if you would like pictures or if you would like to come and take a look at it..I live in Rolling Meadows, by the Arlington Race Track. My home number is 847-342-8436..

    Thank you

    Sue Wenzel

Hi! 😁 Today's Word of the Day is 汉语 hàn yǔ -- literally "Han Language."

So, we're backtracking... or maybe just following the path of yesterday's post 😂. Either way, it might behoove you to know the context of this word.

The 汉 hàn in 汉语 refers to the Han ethnic group -- the largest of the 56 (government-proclaimed) Chinese ethnic groups. Some data have indicated that Han people comprise 90% or more of the population. So, it's unsurprising that this large group has gotten to name one of the most common terms for Mandarin. (Remember, Mandarin is what we learn at BHS and is the official language of China. There are other dialects/languages in existence.)

Anyhoo, the point is that if one is going to be referring to Mandarn Chinese as a language, it wouldn't hurt to know how to say it two ways! 🙃

普通话 and 汉语 can be used in most of the same contexts -- 汉语 might be a little less eloquent, but you won't get in trouble for using either. 🙂
