Easter Dinner Prep ~ Primitive Trade Show

Easter Dinner Prep ~ Primitive Trade Show

Busy week at Country Essentials. Easter Week and the warm weather have brought all our beloved Guests out of hiding! LOL Winter has FINALLY loosened it's grip up here in New England.
Every year, my Husband says: Oh, the snow will never be gone by Easter. It's always measured in his mind, by Easter, even tho it is always different. And I, just 'cos he says that ALWAYS SAY: Nope, it will be gone. It's become a rite of Spring for us, all good fun.
So this is a picture of one of my Cabinets filled with some of my favorite things. 
Johnson Brothers Village Dinnerware, and Pewter. 
My husband bought the whole set for me one Anniversary. I love it! Always have wanted it.  

My Sister and her family will be joining us from Massachusetts, and my three grown children will be heading home with boyfriend, girlfriend and Wife! 
Dinner and Family, Food and Fun! Looking forward to it.
 
Meanwhile, back at our Primitive Shop, it's time to go to Market AGAIN!
Poor Hubby says, "but we are loaded", it's true! :), but how can you pass up a show?
So he will be lifting and loading, while I am standing and POINTING! haha.

These shows have the BEST, handcrafts, Primitive Decor, and Country Home Decor. 
I suspect I will find some nice outdoor primitive garden. These are the original designers, and authentic paints and finishes. Only Professionals are at these shows. That is what makes Country Essentials different. We don't fool around with copy cat cheap imitations.
We travel and research to find top quality, and original designs. 
 

Wishing you a very Happy Easter, if you are so inclined, and or a Wonderful Week!
Stay tuned to see what we get at the show, and our OPEN HOUSE announcement!

NEW design for our Primitive Shoppe!

NEW design for our Primitive Shoppe!
Welcome to our NEW Website! We recently had it redesigned, to make it "feel" more like a Primitive Shoppe. A wonderful Prim Graphic Artist made a nice worn weathered look of wood as the background and other delightful touches. I hope you enjoy it as you browse around.
Come on in thru the "Screendoor" that says "Welcome", and enter our virtual
PRIMITIVE SHOP!  
Did you realize, that we are an actual, authentic operating Primitive Store in New England? When you make a purchase from us, it is not
a "big box" or "HOBBY" - u - know who store. Your are supporting
a family run, locally owned and operated shop, that puts our heart and soul into it. We love what we do and have a "Passion for Primitives".
We DON'T have it all, nor do we want to.~ We carefully select unique, special items. The latest styles, and trends, from the BEST Companies.
Our sources are the Amish, Artists, and Crafters, that we have now built relationships with after doing business with them for so many years. We are the area's trusted source for Primitive Country Home Decor & Gifts. 
Your Potpourri is hand blended and taken from one of our old cupboards,


 your Berry Swags and Garland come off an old farm ladder.

We do it the old fashioned way, not paying others to go to a massive warehouse. We focus on Hand made, Homespun and Heartfelt.

No matter where YOU live!

Snowman Candles ~ Fatty Taddy Cake Candles

Looking for a Country Snowman Candle? We have the BEST! These hand crafted Cake Candles come in many sizes and styles. Traditional wax, and Electric windowsill.
 
They make amazing additions to your country primitive displays, and you can leave them out all Winter!
No two are alike with their handcrafted nature. YES you CAN burn them. Simply make sure they burn long enough to reach within 1/4 to 1/2 of the edge of whatever size candle you are burning. then blow out. Each time you do this you are "building" a self contained candle holder. The Face will still show, but you can burn it this way. 
Give the edge a gentle "hug" while the wax is warm to insure the edge.
