Marlborough Mass. Cash & Carry Trade Show

Hello friends,

We wanted to remind everyone that Primitiques will be attending the Marlborough, Mass. Cash & Carry Trade Show (Market Square) this Sunday, October 4th. We are looking forward to visiting beautiful New England in autumn Please contact us if there is anything you would like to pre-purchase and have us deliver to the show for you. I am attaching some pictures of a sampling of the smaller goodies we will be bringing to the show. If we have a larger piece that you would like to buy, please call us because we are not planning on bringing many big pieces this weekend, just smalls and medium size pieces. So, if you have your heart set on anything, be safe & call to pre-purchase your goodies. Please email us at, anytime or you can call us at 610.459.1776. Please visit our website at to view our goodes. We have included a few pictures in this post.

Also, please note that the online trade show we participated in last night was a wonderful success. In fact, the site was "crashed" due to high volume, therefore, we decided to leave the site open (but, of course, password protected) so folks can shop on line, wholesale, at their leisure & comfort. We have 14 American artisans and craftspeople participating in the Jack Frost online trade show, so please, visit the site and email me your credentials so I can provide you with the password.

Also, Primitiques' booth at the website has pictured our CURRENT and available inventory , so you can use this as a regular opportunity to view our new furniture, smalls, and accessories and purchase from inventory for us to deliver to Marlborough or King of Prussia in October. As always, don't hesitate to call or email us, we are here to help make your holiday seasons a huge success!!!

Below are some photos for you to check and see what we are bringing to Marlborough this weekend. Remember, many of our goodes are one-of-a-kind at shows, such as our Vintage Feed Sack Upholstered Chairs and Sofas. Our Windsor Chair line is ALL HAND HEWN and harvested from our chair maker's land. No two are alike but ALL are equally as authentic looking. We will be bringing our 200 under 20 program to Massachusetts this weekend, too! Remember, first come, first sold.

Review of Primitiques' "200 under 20" Program

Primitiques developed a line of original smalls to sell at our booth during Cash & Carry Trade Shows... We will bring 200 or more small, woodenwares to the show that are all unique and under $20.00! Some pieces will have Rusty Wire, Rusty Repairs and Make-Do Patches, too! Some of our Old-n-Rusty Shoo Fly Screens will also be under $20.00. When you buy at Cash & Carry Shows, Primitiques' has NO MINIMUM, PLUS we offer some wonderful Show Pricing (see for current inventory and we will honor our Jack Frost Show Prices IF you pre-order between NOW and FRIDAY, October 2nd when we load up our trucks)... Some wooden pieces will even be as low as $4.00!!! ~ How's that for a primitive economic stimulus plan! As with all Cash & Carry shows, all items are sold on a first-come, first-sold basis.

200 under 20's come in so many different sizes and shapes, it's impossible to picture them all, but all just simply Primitiqued!!! Below are some pictures of only a SAMPLING of the 200/20 program items we're bringing to the Marlborough's Cash & Carry on August 4th!

If you are unable to attend this show but would love to benefit from carrying the 200 under 20 line, please call us so we can put together your "care package" for you :-) Thanks for taking the time to read our previews, we hope they are helpful. Looking forward to seeing everybody in beautiful New England on the 4th!

Kindest Regards,

Beth & Bill Merryfield
Primitiques, Ltd.

Country Living Show

The booth is set up and Beth and Bill have done an AWESOME job... as usual. I am going to update the site every day while the show is on to give you a fresh look at the booth every day. Plus a few other shots of the comings and goings of the show if there is time... HOPEFULLY NOT!!!

This is the bedroom under the first tent which was my tent. I bought the E-Z Up tent which Beth said "Ain't so easy".

Don't you just love this bed!!! Its great to work in a booth where you can literally hide under the bed to get away or nap when you get tired. LOL. Then move to the next room during lunch and sit in your own kitchen to eat after you get your meal out of the corner butt'ry. Plus you can move onto the sitting room and plop down on the couch, put your feet up, sip some wine and visit with friends or work on the computer. Its HOME AWAY FROM HOME!!!!
