Hi and Welcome to Green Acres Primitives!
My name is Melissa and I have been creating and crafting ever since
I was little. My love for antiques and primitives grew from sitting in my
Grandma's kitchen, which was beautifully decorated with "real" antiques that her family grew up using. She took me shopping to endless flea markets and craft festivals too. My grandpa had a woodshop in their basement and when I was a child I would spend my time collecting tiny bits of wood scraps to make my own crafty 'creations'.
I started stenciling when I was 10 (at Bible camp) and instantly loved painting!
I also taught myself to sew, and I would spend hours piecing together scraps
for doll clothes and curtains for my room. I even raided Grandma's closet and made myself "new" outfits from her vintage 50's dresses!
We have been selling our handmade crafts for over 15 years!
I was blessed with a dear husband who loves woodworking as much as grandpa did.
He makes all of the primitive furniture, benches, shelves, picture frames, dry sinks, farm tables, and any thing else 'wood' seen in our photos.
Our primitive candles and beeswax items are made from Vintage or Antique Molds.
We also make molds ourselves if we run across a unique "little treasure" that would make the perfect soap bar or beeswax ornie. Our candles are handmade and poured from our own fragrant and creamy wax blend. Multiple spice rubbings give our candles that old and early primitive look we all love!
All of my fabric Dolls and Folk Art goodies are handmade with care using both new and old textiles.
I use osnaburg, vintage fabrics and antique quilts for all of my folk art creations.
Please feel free to contact us if you ever have a question.
We love to do special orders too!
Thanks for visiting Green Acres Primitives!
Prim Blessings to you!
Melissa & the rest of the Green Acres bunch.
