What's New At Timbalier!


Bloody Mary Saturday Sale!

Well, here we go again. For those of you who have been around for the old Bloody Mary Saturday Sale, it is becoming a distant memory at this point. We couldn’t have it last year but, we thought for sure, we could have it this year. Unfortunately, that’s not the case. We’re all masked up again, and we don’t want to be a spreader event, so once again we will have the sale over a three day period, to lessen the crowds, and we won’t be serving Bloody Marys. At the rate we are going, we’re just going to have to rename it the Put Your Mask On September Sale! Oh please, let’s hope not. So, put this event in your calendar!

This is our only sale of the season, so take advantage of it to do some early holiday shopping!

20% Off everything!! Three days only!! Don’t miss it!!

Speaking of the holidays, we will have extended hours starting on November 1st and going until Christmas. Our holiday hours will be:

Monday - Friday: 10:00 - 5:30
Saturday: 10:00 - 4:00
Sunday: 11:00 - 3:00

Thank you all for your continued support. We are doing just fine, thanks to all of you. We look forward to seeing you for the sale, if not before.

John Chapman & Spike Ritter

A jewel of a store called Timbalier is conveniently located amidst the shops and restaurants in Atlas Valley Center at 95th and Arapahoe in Lafayette. Created by owners John Chapman and Spike Ritter Chapman in the Spring of 2004, Timbalier is set apart not just by its own unique mix of products but also by how you will be treated. With each shopping visit you will become more like a friend than just a customer. While you shop you will be offered assistance if you need it and not if you don't, and if you're buying a gift it will be wrapped in one of our complimentary custom boxes. Welcoming, relaxing, and at Timbalier.

Of course, people always want to know where the name Timbalier comes from. Spike is from New Orleans originally and he and his parents frequently went fishing on Timbalier, a barrier island off the coast of Louisiana. On one trip, his mother caught an exceptionally large redfish, which presented a great photo-op. The resulting picture of his parents is his favorite one of them and provides lasting memories of his parents and a place called Timbalier.
