Primitive pieces take us to a time when skilled craftsmanship and dedication to quality were the standard of the day. Often crafted from what was on hand and serving multiple purposes, these utilitarian pieces, sometimes bruised and even broken, have found their way into our hearts and homes. Our customers love the "character" they add to our modern day living spaces. With each, comes a story waiting for us to add our own.
Unique, and often crafted from a mix of wood on hand, yesterday's cupboards are great finds for today's small spaces, nooks, and living areas.
We are open Thursday, 12:00 - 5:00, Friday and Saturday 10:00 -5:00, Mid April through Mid December and by appointment. Always good to check our site, Faccebook or call if you are coming a distance. We do close a few times each year for a buying trip or family adventure (usually one in the same).
Pantry staples of the past, they are often featured centerpieces for seasonal celebrations, set on a table or bench to offer a friendly welcome.
