Hello! Welcome to Yankee Primitives!

Here is a little bit about me and how this shop came to be:

I am originally from the US, (born in Texas) but married a Canadian Air Force pilot, and we currently live in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. (We have moved a million times, it seems!) I am a substitute teacher as well as a mom of 4 great children, ranging in age from 22 - 15.

I strive to create all of my items as if I were going to hang them in my own home. Each item is hand-cut from knotty pine (usually by me, but my husband helps out when he can), base-coated, lettered (NO vinyl), distressed, antiqued and varnished. It is a 10 step process that ensures that your purchase will last for years!

Have fun looking around and please contact me if you have any comments or questions!
