Home Newsroom 146. “Get Noticed” with Barrington’s Newest Boutique

The term “get noticed” has new meaning in Barrington with a brand new boutique that just opened its doors on Cook Street. The shop’s name is “Notice – Accessories for Living” and it’s full of fun and unique clothing, jewelry, handbags, scarves and other special details carefully selected to stand out when mixed with any wardrobe. Barrington is the third location for this 3-year-old family business owned by Mari Barnes and managed by her two daughters, Becky and Hannah. Since they’re a mother-daughter team, they decided Mother’s Day weekend would be the perfect time to roll out the red carpet and host the new store’s grand opening celebration.

The Barnes family developed a keen eye for art and unique pieces as the long-time owners of a custom frame shop, The Custom Framer, in downtown Highland Park. They expanded their scope when they opened their first Notice accessories boutique in Evanston three years ago. They opened another Notice shop on Main Street in Lake Geneva last year to follow with their latest store which opened in Barrington last month…

Mari says her main criteria in searching for an ideal third location was finding a thriving community with exciting things happening on and around Main Street. The shop offers the community a laid-back, walk-to shopping experience and a fun destination to meet a friend or splurge on a gift for yourself or someone you love. “I drove everywhere to find the ideal location and really liked the feel of this town. Our love of contemporary pieces will be a fun new addition to downtown Barrington.”

Mari, Becky and Hannah say they pride themselves on staying one step ahead of the trends. They’re constantly updating their inventory and have a simple philosophy when they shop for merchandise. Mari says, “We buy what we love.” Among their top sellers are leather wallets by Hobo International and My Walit.

And they say their colorful Mosey handbags, made of recycled plastic water bottles, are so popular, they literally fly out the door, finding homes on the arms of busy moms and beyond.

Here are some of the other top sellers with full lines featured at Notice:

“We have dresses that are $60 and dresses that are $260. There’s something for everyone. Even the babies!” A section of store features items just for children that Becky, who has an eight-month-old son of her own, says is a great place to find hip accessories for the little ones in your life.

And, if you need to grab a gift on the go, they also offer a selection of greeting cards for every occasion.

If you haven’t been to Notice yet, this is a great week to drop by. Their three day grand opening shopping event starts this Thursday and lasts through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. each day. They’re offering a “noticeably cool” free gift with purchase and will be hosting a Mother’s Day Toast and Celebration with sips and sweets on Saturday from 12 to 4 p.m. Plus, you can enter to win a $100 Notice shopping spree at their locations in Barrington, Evanston and Lake Geneva.

So, if you’re looking for a great gift for mom this Mother’s Day, you’ll find plenty of options at this one-stop-shop for all things fashionable. Notice’s new location is at 202 South Cook Street in Barrington. They’re open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Saturday and from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday. Their phone number is 224-655-2085. You’ll find them on Facebook by clicking HERE and you’ll find their website at Notice-This.com.

你好! Today we're taking a quick look at some common honorifics!

Okay, so what is an honorific? Basically, what we'd say in English would be "sir," "madam," "miss," etcetera. While Chinese also has titles for "teacher," "doctor," and their ilk, I'll focus on more general ones today.

先生 xiān shēng , literally "first born," is in practice an equivalent for "Mr.," or "sir." How do you use it? Place it /after/ the surname, so if you're talking to someone with the surname 王 wáng, you'd say 王先生.

So, there are more ways to address a woman than there are to commonly address a man. 小姐 xiǎo jiě is basically the equivalent of "miss." It's used for a young, unmarried girl. Some preliminary research indicates to me that it's a pretty close equivalent to that English -- for example, you might use it in a restaurant calling down a waitress as well as to a young woman.
太太 tài tai is literally "wife," in one translation, but for this purpose it's closer to "Mrs.," or "madam." Just to reiterate: You're referring to a married woman whose (married) last name is 张 zhāng. She's called 张太太. Oh, and by the way, you'd use 太太 in familial or personal contexts... you might want to go with 女士 (nǚ shì) for a more formal context.

Okay!

“Despite the rocky start, participating in group now gives me a sense of belonging. After the first two weeks, online therapy finally clicked and gave me insight into managing my anxiety. Once I found my voice and started sharing my story and my anxieties, fellow patients taught me coping skills that worked for them. Even the long-winded group members empowered me with calm and focus. I wrote down three things I was grateful for every morning. I practiced meditation (which needed a lot of practice). I tuned into a progressive muscle relaxation video to guide me to tense and relax one body part at a time. Doing these exercises over and over reset my fear-infected brain.”
