Early Work Mercantile Grand Opening!

Early Work Mercantile is now open for business! Before I head on over to browse through all of the other talented artists’ goodies, I would like to introduce you to my two new offerings that are available now in the Old World Primitives Early Work Mercantile Shop. Both dolls were created using Netty LaCroix designs.

First is Hester – she is an extreme primitive folk art pioneer doll.

My second offering is a spooky extreme primitive black cat doll.

For more information about each of these dolls, please come and visit them over at Early Work Mercantile. I on my way over there myself right now!

Extreme Primitive Black Cat + EHAG Prize!

I was planning on making an Uncle Sam doll as my next creation, but I couldn’t resist squeezing in a primitive black Halloween cat first. This extreme primitive black cat doll is wearing a witch hat and was created using a Netty LaCroix design. He is available now in my Old World Primitives Etsy shop.

SOLD, thank you!

In keeping with today’s Halloween theme, I also received a wonderful package in the mail today. I was the lucky winner of a set of curious Halloween ornaments handmade by Iva Wilcox in EHAG’s Frightful FĂȘte 3rd Anniversary Giveaway. I was so surprised and happy that I won – and when my package arrived, I discovered that Iva had also tucked in a beautiful signed, limited edition ACEO Halloween print as an extra. Thank you so much, Iva, for brightening my day with these lovely goodies!

April will be my final month on WSOAPP, and starting May 1st you may find me on Early Work Mercantile (in addition to my Old World Primitives Etsy Shop). I will be closing down my retail store in approximately 2 months and transitioning that page over to a homepage for my handmade wares soon after.

Announcing Early Work Mercantile

Today I am excited to announce that I have joined Early Work Mercantile, a new online monthly selling site for artists who create early style folk art creations reminiscent of the 18th & 19th centuries. This lovely new mercantile was created by my friend Doreen of Vermont Harvest Folk Art.

Our Grand Opening will take place one month from today, on May 1st. Shops will be updated the 1st and 15th of each month.
