110. Growing Cents of Style Children’s Consigment Sale

 The scent of spring was in the air this week and, for the first time in months, the weather’s starting to feel a little more welcoming. Daylight savings is this Sunday, the sun is shining a little bit brighter and the temperature is starting to rise.  It occurred to me this week that now’s the time to start getting my kids’ warm weather wardrobe together. At 3 years, 2 years and 7-months-old, my kids need new sizes every season so there’s no way I’m missing the Growing Cents of Style consignment sale that’s going on this weekend, March 10th and 11th, in Barrington!

A Barrington mom named Jenny Welsh has been organizing two seasonal Growing Cents of Style consignment sales a year since the fall of 2006 and the event grows by leaps and bounds each year. “The event has grown from 43 consignors at our first sale to over 300 at our upcoming sale. I have consignors from all over the Chicago area and Wisconsin. We will have over 20,000 items for sale this weekend and will see over 1,000 shoppers this sale…”…

68. Spot the Scarecrow to Win a Sweet Prize

 It’s a beautiful fall day, it’s Friday to boot and I’m in the mood for a contest! Who feels like spotting scarecrows this weekend? Businesses throughout Barrington have decorated their storefronts with scarecrows for the Village’s annual community scarecrow design competition and I’ve been out on the streets snapping photos. Today we have a winner from last week’s first ever 365 Barrington Spot the Scarecrow contest and we have another mystery scarecrow for you to identify. Do you know where this artsy scarecrow is chillin’ this fall?

I’m told that the hot pink flower pot will be a dead giveaway, but we’ll see.  If you can tell us what business this straw painter belongs to, you could be our next winner and we have a great prize for this week. But first, let’s talk about last week’s winner and the fireman scarecrow we featured. We had some great guesses and we drew our winner’s name today. We’ll reveal the winner after we take a look at the man behind the scarecrow. He’s Brian Long, the owner of Long and Company Jewelers at 105 E. Main Street.  Brian says he’s pretty proud of the store’s straw man this year who has been decked out in fireman gear, a tribute to the heroes of September 11th.

You’ll find Brian and Long and Company Jewelers right in the center of town, on the southeast corner of Route 59 (Hough Street) and Lake Cook Road (Main Street). He sells gorgeous jewelry, offers jewelry and watch repair, cleaning and appraisal services plus, he’s the exclusive Waterford Crystal retailer in town. The winner who correctly identified the scarecrow outside of Brian’s storefront wins $30 dollars worth of in-store services. It’ll come in handy because they’ll fix or clean your jewelry or put a new battery in your watch while you wait. The store has a great laid-back vibe, too, and was beautifully refurbished by the Longs before they opened for business back in 2006. In fact, as you’ll see by her guess, this week’s winner is already a big fan and her name is……

Heinen's Store in Avon, Ohio

59. Heinen’s Fine Foods Store to Open in Barrington

 Staples office supply closed for business in Barrington this week but, as Alexander Graham Bell once said, “When one door closes, another opens.” Heinen’s Fine Foods, a Cleveland-based grocery business with 17 stores in Northeastern Ohio, announced today they’re opening their newest store in Barrington next summer. They’re moving into the space that Staples is leaving at the Shops at Flint Creek. Today I spoke with one of the two Heinan brothers who run the business to learn more about the store and their decision to choose Barrington.
The Barrington move is a bold step for the 82-year-old, family-owned company because it’s Heinen’s first venture outside Northeast Ohio. “It took us 82 years to get to 17 stores in Cleveland, so this is not about being big and fast. This is about being the best.” Jeff Heinen says their plan is that the Barrington location will be just the beginning of a multi-store expansion into Greater Chicagoland. “This will be a huge challenge for us and we’re not overconfident.”
The Heinens say they’ve been considering a move to Barrington for quite some time. Village planners first reached out to the business about a move here in 2007 and the brothers came to town to tour the space last summer.  They considered two other locations, one in Lake Forest and one in another state, before deciding on Barrington.…

11. Find Spring Treasures at Ice House Antique Show

 Somehow I’ve trained my two-year-old to say “It’s a happy day!” first thing when she wakes up. She shouts this out at the first signs of sunlight, even if it’s dark, stormy and I feel like crawling back into bed. But today, it really LOOKS like a happy day. The sun is shining (at least for now), the forecast calls 70 degrees and I feel like getting outside and planting something in the garden. But first, I’m heading over to the third annual Spring Antique and Garden Show at the Ice House Mall. It’s happening all day today and tomorrow and there are treasures to be found that are sure bring some sunshine into your own home or garden.

296. Find Ideas for Today’s Top Wedding Tablescapes

 When I go to a wedding, one of the things I most look forward to is seeing how the bride and groom set the mood with all the details, large and small. From the flowers, to the place cards to the way the tables are set, sometimes the little things are what I remember most. Our wedding was right before Valentine’s Day, so we chose red tablecloths and romantic lighting. To be honest, I should disclose that by “we”, I mean my mom and I. Bill was enthusiastically indifferent.
But the one thing I wish I had when planning our wedding, was expert help. Barrington special events planner, Christina Currie would have been perfect for the job.…
