~ Positively Primitive ~
















First of all primitive is not my style, but it is very popular with those "other" type of people who don't seem to get the whole dreamy creamy thing...I say what the hay-different strokes for different folks. And because I am sooo obliging to my other dealer friends, I felt that they were being left out of the limelight. Primitives sell very, very well and what's more surprising is that there does not seem to be alot of work that needs to go into these pieces before they get sold. They usually sell as-is...That must be nice, but for some of us we work very hard to achieve that " worn " look that so many primitives already possess. The one thing that most primitives don't possess, in my opinion, is the cream coloring that I so love. So here's to the primitives in all their colored glory!!!!!......

  4. Great primitive space, I love all styles of decorating and my first store use to be more primitive.And I also love for myself antiques in their original condition. For my shop customers...lets paint it up though! Your right, they do sell very well and they do deserve your attention and thanks for sharing.

  5. I had to jump in here. I am both a primitive lover and a Dreamy Creamy Lover! My first booth was all Primitive and I would not say it sold well. Location is everything and I was simply in the wrong location.

    My home is primitive. The furniture is red, black and white. Some Chippy some isn't. Mostly the white is chippy.

    And you would be surprised , work does go into making primitive pieces. I spent hours staining , sanding, and rusting things.

  7. Love the suitcases! Primitive is not my cup of tea, but I still love to look at it. I took my girl friend Sarah, from Florida to see all the dreamy creamy booths in Lone Star. She loved your booth. They all looked so nice.
    Hope you have a wonderful weekend.
    Smiles,

  8. Hi Tiina,
    Well, you know that I'm not a primitive gal. I have a lot of family that is though. My sisters think most of my stuff is just junk. Of course it is, and that's why I love it.
    Hugs, June

  10. I know what you mean by the truly 80's primative but I do like it in cream and white. It gives it a lighter airy feel and not so dreary. Though in Fall and Christmas it's a nice look but what do you do the rest of the year???

  11. Glad to see your an equal opportunity blogger! Spent all day at LoneStar today...spent so much time decorating, forgot to price most of it. Looks like I will be back tomorrow!

  12. Have to confess...I can't resist any of it. I buy it if it pleases me and can fit it into the vignette! I see many items that I could pull from any of these booths and they would fit right into even a shabby white room. I love color and when you add an awesome, vintage piece to an all creamy area...it just pops! The first pic has oodles of awesome things.
    Adieu, Maureen

  13. Isn't it presumptuous to assume that those who choose the primitive style don't work as hard to achieve an appeal for the treasure hunter as those who prefer the shabby chic effects! Antiquing is a very exhausting and challenging past-time and I give applause to all who make the effort...regardless of their style preference! I know...I have been there!
