We Are Packing For GETTYSBURG!!!!

Hello Folks,

Just a quick note to let you know that Primitiques decided (last minute) to attend the Gettysburg, PA Cash & Carry Show on Wednesday, September 2nd from 9am-3pm. It is through Heritage Markets. (See show info below).

As many of you know, Primitiques introduced our 200 under 20 Program in June and it was a HUGE hit. Since our starting this program, our items are also a HUGE HIT for you, our retailers! It seems that our buyers/shops cannot keep these little Primitiques' treasures in stock! We are busy trying to make as many 200 under 20 items for Gettysburg because we literally ran out of almost 500 of these treasures last week at the Columbus Cash & Carry! We are thrilled that our small Handmade, one-of-a-kind pieces are selling well for our shops. Especially since folks want to purchase handmade goods, but may not be able to stretch their budgets for a while. These little pieces are truly the niche you need as a shop owner to bring fresh and original works of functional art into your shops and to keep your buyers interested in your shop!

Remember, if you are a qualified buyer as not able to attend a show, please call or email Beth at Primitiques to purchase your "care package" of our 200 under 20 program items. This is a wonderful way to get a wonderful variety of smalls into your shop for the autumn season! Pair them with our wee little shoo flys, our NEW Rusty Wire Spring Candle Holders and you have a unique and perfectly Primitive Gathering!

Here is our new Ol' Dryin' Board
We'll have a few of these cuties for sale at Gettysburg on 9/2.

If you are planning to attend the Gettysburg Cash & Carry, be sure to get there early so you can get first pickens of these little treasures! Many of you have already seen and fallen in love with our new rusty shoo fly collection! We SOLD OUT of about 100 Small & Medium Rusty Shoo Fly Screens in the first hour of our Autumn Harvest Online Trade Show in June but now have a new batch (only about 40 left of small (4 inch and of the 7 inch). These shoo flys are as authentic as they come! hand stitched by me, Beth (for orders, and by chance at C&C shows). Of course, we have a nice sampling of BIG Primitiques available at the mill but will only be bringing a sampling of our larger pieces to this show. Please check out our invetory available online @ to see if there is anything you want to buy and have us deliver to the show at no charge. This site is password protected, so email or call Beth asap to receive the password (only qualified buyers please). OR 610.459.1776

Finally, if you are a qualified buyer, you can go to our online tradeshow website (currently between shows) to view some of the inventory Primitiques has to offer. If you see anything on the site, please call us right away, otherwise, we may not be bringing it to the Gettysburg Cash & Carry on September 2nd.

Here is the site of the Quill & Well's Online Trade Show:

You will need to be qualified as a buyer to receive your password to enter the site. The site will be closed the second week of September while the artisans (such as Primitiques) are busy setting up our booths with NEW goodies for the Jack Frost Online Trade Show on Monday, Septermber 28th (8-10:30 PM).

Thank you for taking the time to read our updates and we hope to see you at the Gettysburg Cash & Carry Trade Show Next week!!!
