I added two more new primitive Halloween items to Old World Primitives today: Primitive Black Cat Candy Bowl and Happy Hollow Penny Rug.

Old World Primitives is also now sold out of the Bethany Lowe Hallow’s Eve Nesting Blocks for the season. Sadly we are unable to re-order any more of this item. We also have only two pieces left of Black Cat In a Party Hat by Johanna Parker left before that item is completely sold out.


I added three new Halloween folk art collectibles designed by Vickie Smyers to Old World Primitives today – I am very impressed with the quality of each piece and the originality of Vickie’s designs. I like these items so much that I am keeping one of each for my own collection! These are the new Vickie Smyers Halloween pieces:

Trick-or-Treat Moon Man

Spooky Pumpkin Treat Bucket

Crow Hollow Scarecrow Jack

I added a few more Bethany Lowe Halloween items to Old World Primitives yesterday:

Many more items soon to come!

New shipments of Bethany Lowe collectibles and primitive folk art for Halloween and Christmas have started arriving at Old World Primitives, with many more items due to arrive this week and in the coming months. We are very excited to be greatly expanding our inventory, and hope that everyone will enjoy the new goodies that we have to offer! Today we added these new items by Bethany Lowe Designs to our store:

Old World Primitives has added more Halloween primitive feather trees – there are two Halloween feather tree styles and one fall harvest / Thanksgiving feather tree.

Feather trees, which are so named because they are made using genuine goose feathers, were first produced more than 100 years ago. Original feather trees are now rare antiques, but fortunately folk art companies like Bethany Lowe are creating quality reproductions of these early artificial trees. Early feather trees were made in Germany and featured wide spaces between their branches. Tabletop sized feather trees are becoming popular again for all seasons of primitive and vintage style decorating as a perfect means for displaying feather tree ornaments.

Feather trees are produced by wrapping goose feathers around stiff wires to form the tree branches. The tree branches are then attached to long, thin wooden tree trunk. The tree trunk is stabilized with a base, which is often in the form of a spool or decorated box.

I like using feather trees as a means of maximizing my decorating space – the tabletop sized trees don’t take up much room, but can be filled with many primitive ornaments. I just added this new Feather Tree in Spring Green by Bethany Lowe to Old World Primitives today:

I am still working on building up my inventory for my primitive folk art store called Old World Primitives, so I have many new items arriving each week. This week I received a shipment of some new handcrafted primitive shaker boxes and pantry boxes that are just amazing! Some of them are going to be very hard to part with. My favorite item from the shipment is this primitive pantry box in pale yellow:
