Welcome to Blue Ridge Mercantile!

I enjoy creating one of a kind, folk art and primitive crafts. I truly appreciate that old, worn, weathered look that is far from being perfect. Keeping that in mind, any dents, rust, scratches, uneven stitches, worn paint, chips or stains in my work are PURPOSELY DONE or already in the materials used to make them. So, if you are looking for handmade items that are "perfectly imperfect" come on in and have a look around.

I enjoy working with wood and fabric. I make an extra effort not to make any two items identical. If they are similar patterns, I change the embellishments, fabric or color, to create one of a kind crafts. I don't care for the mass produced, fresh off the assembly line look.

While looking around my shop, please keep in mind…

While looking around my shop, please keep in mind that my crafts are for decorative use. Although I do create a lot of "toy-like" crafts, they are not meant to be used as children's toys. They are made for the "big kid" in all of us. Hopefully, you will come across something that puts a smile on YOUR face!

I have started working on crafts that are suitable for children (with adult supervision) and those can be found in the SOFT SCULPTURE TOYS section of my shop. Some have buttons or small embellishments that could pose a problem with babies, so supervision is always advised.

I hope to be adding more items soon, so please stop by again. Thanks so much for visiting Blue Ridge Mercantile.
