"I don't know what I may seem to the world, but as to myself, I seem to have been only like a boy playing on the sea shore and diverting myself in now and then finding a smoother pebble or prettier shell than ordinary, whilst the great ocean of truth lay all undiscovered before me". Sir Isaac Newton
Primitiques' Primrose Days at the Mill is our Mid-Spring celebration Open House! Primitiques is open to the public as we are now our area's distributor of our goodes and have a wonderful selection of handmades in our showroom.
Primitiques & the many talented artists of the Heron Studios Gallery (aptly named after the HUGE heron that flies up and down this old mill's creek... and the same heron that sits on the peak of our garage and munches on our pond's fish!). The Heron Studios boasts artists of many different mediums, including oil painting, weaving, fiber arts and pottery, to name a few. They are a fun group of artisans and always gracious hosts! We sure hope you can join us! Please rsvp if you intend to come on Friday evening (preview cocktail night) so we can adequately plan our food and light fare menu. You can email Beth at firstname.lastname@example.org (NOTE THERE IS NO "s" on the end of our email address) or you can call us at the mill at 610.459.1776.
Our dear friends, Bruce & Ruthe Martz, had their home featured in Country Sampler's 2010 Home Tour Edition! We refinished the Martz' kitchen, built a lot of custom cabinets for them & upholstered the furniture featured in this edition. Wanted to share that with you all ;-)
We refinished the Martz' kitchen cabinets to be Primitiqued and built a custom plate cupboard that blends seamlessly with the kitchen remodel. We also created several upholstered make-do's and re-upholstered & repainted the legs of the Black Snowflake Loveseat shown in this magazine. We wish CS had mentioned that the Columbus Corner Cabinet was designed by me, Beth of Primitiques, Ltd. I custom designed that in collaboration with Ruthe Martz so it is truly a collaborative work of friendship and design. We hope you can pick up a copy of CS and see the many pages of unique Primitiques we have to offer you, too!!! Here are some pix of the Martz home that I took of my Columbus Corner Cupboard, kitchen remodel and some other pieces we made for the Martz home...
We (Bill & Beth of Primitiques) are so excited that we were asked by Country Business Magazine to be their May/June 2010 Vendor Profile! It was a whirl-wind week for us. We got a call last week from the editor of CB, Susan Wagner then, just a couple days later, we had a photo shoot at our mill! One picture is way too funny because the photographer wanted me holding the nail gun in our upholstery room! Look out!!!
We had our interview via telephone on Wednesday and believe the article about us will be in next month’s issue already. Please keep an eye out for it!!!

We are located at 739 Mount Road, A2, Aston, PA 19014. 610.459.1776 or email@example.com to rsvp for the friday evening cocktail & lite fare preview.
The photo below is of our new Mercantile Drysink Cupboard & what it looks like when converted into a Flat Screen TV Armoire! Just 1 of the many, many products we make here at our mill in Aston, PA!
At last, we've completed our 2010 catalog. we're up to 40 pages! Each year, we add so many new & unique items that it takes Beth forever to finalize the catalog! But, alas, it is done before 2011!!! There is one more item that we will add to this... Our Mercantile Drysink Flat Screen TV Cupboard!... Stay Tuned!
