This spice cabinet is different than most of them in that it has 7 drawers, not 6 and not 8 as most spice cabinets have. It has a very good surface patina and is a unique cabinet for the price. A great primitive for anyone's collection. $115 Sold

Here is one of our "Feed Sack" chairs. Perfect to add a primitive look to any room. They are "sittable" and nice to ponder how they were used. These have been very popular for us and fit in any room. $150

Hardware Organizer. Very primitive.

This old Hardware Drawer cubby was probably a workman's organizer. Each drawer is adorned with something like a nail or staple which is probably what was contained in the drawer. We think this was a very creative way to organize one's fasteners. Come and take a closer look!!! $139

Mustard Bench

Look at this very primitive old bench. It has mustard paint and is very quite well worn. It is square nailed and a great example of early American primitive design. It has a great surface, with chipped paint and is very solid. $240

Here is an old pumpkin colored dry sink we found in eastern Iowa. It is probably from New England, but can't guarantee it. It is a shallow one, ( about 14" deep) by any standard and would work well when you don't have a wide area to put it in. It would work great in an entryway to show off bowls and florals for the holidays. Come and take a look. $595

Primitive Step back Cupboard

This is a great old Primitive Step back Cupboard. The doors are screen covered and this piece is ancient. While it is really primitive, it is an item which will work with more modern furniture. It can set the mood for the whole room. $490
