About Us

When I announced , last November that Inside Out would be closing, I was heartbroken. I could see no way to keep this shop of my dreams open. So I took the plunge and made the decision  I didn’t want to make, believing it was the only think I could do. I can’t even begin to count the number of you who encouraged me, offered suggestions for the way to stay open, and stopped by to share your sadness at the loss of the place that truly has been THE PLACE TO BE. Along the way of the days since that message, my prayers were answered – the way of staying open found me. I am over the moon to tell you I have reinvented Inside Out, and with a few, new but very important changes, this shop of my dreams is staying open!!!

How? to begin with, a new look and new hours! We are closed Sunday through Wednesday and open Thursday from 10am to 7pm, Friday and Saturday from 10am to 5pm. Our line up of twice monthly special events will continue and on those evenings, we will stay open late. 

No Inside Out reinvention would be complete without a  whole new look, with even more seating! The Fixie Chicks are helping me to bring my vision to life. Just. Wait. I think you’re going to love it.

EVENTS! EVENTS! EVENTS! I wish I had started offering Inside Out as a venue for you to hold your private events long ago. By the end of 2015, it was clear that not only did many of you love having fundraisers, family reunions, business networking events, private wine tastings and all kinds of parties at Inside Out (no muss, no fuss, all fun!!!!)-they make good business sense. Going forward, the new Inside Out is focusing more on private events. We’ll schedule them when you want them. Seven days a week! To book your own private event, call (815.265.9905), email or message us in Facebook.

Another brand new piece to the way of staying open is a catering partnership with The Longbranch restaurant. Need I say more? If it is somehow possible that you’re not familiar with the Longbranch- take yourself to downtown L’erable for an  experience to love. You’ll find them on Facebook, if you want a virtual peek before you drive.

You asked for it – we’re bringing it! I am happy to announce the launch our Wine Club.

Shopping???? Especially for those of you who like to sip and shop, we will continue to have merchandise for sale, especially fabulous new wine and wine accessories, along with food items. What used to be our mainstay, merchandise in the form of home and garden decor, and women’s fashion accessories will now be featured from time to time as specialty boutique items. In the meantime, our inventory reduction pricing continues. Shop on!!!
