Southern girl hunting primitive and antique treasures.

Growing up in the south, it was common to see old tobacco barns, century-old farmhouses or plantation homes, acres and acres of tobacco, soybeans, or corn. I never gave it much thought until I began to notice the barns were falling down and the homes were neglected and empty. I realized I was drawn to those old buildings and the things they used to hold - farmhouse sideboards, pie safes, painted cabinets, handmade quilts, barn tobacco baskets, pickle crocks, and paint benches. I can't bring home the barns or the houses but I can search out their vintage and primitive furnishings. Some of the items you will see in my shop will be from my own personal collections. Others will be things I'd like to have but have run out of space! And still others will be unique pieces that I purchase with you, the vintage-lover-buyer in mind. My husband is my biggest supporter and faithful helper in searching out these treasures. We hope you find something in my shop that interests you. My goal is to list things honestly and fairly and to remain faithful to the Lord Jesus Christ in all my dealings with each of you. If you purchase an item and it is not as described, please contact me. I will do all I can - I love happy customers! :-)
