Frog on a limb Primitives is a “unique store, with a unique promise,” or maybe we should say promises:
– Made in the U.S.A! In a time when hundreds of billions of dollars in retail sales are being funneled to China, how many can make that promise? We have a personal relationship with all our artisans hailing from places like Colorado, California, Tennessee, Virginia, West Virginia, Nova Scotia… Ok, that’s Canada, but we are not ashamed. In fact we are proud to deal in the early colonial crafts of one of our artisans living in the land of our brothers and sisters to the North.
– Recycled! A key trait of primitives is to make old new again; to add a little muse and whimsy and transform the worthless to valuable.
– Handmade! Our artisans love what they do and they do what they love. All of our products are cut, turned, sewed, sanded, painted, poured, hammered, nailed, fixed, fastened, mixed, matched, batched or baked by human hands.
– Preserving our Heritage! I grew up with the craft of my mother and father, and the rest of my family all around me. If we don’t endeavor to preserve our heritage, when our parents are gone, their skills will be lost for posterity.
