Yesterday's Market Place Monday is today!!!

Usually The members of the great group OFG or Olde Farmhouse Gathering share the work of our talented friends in the group.
But yesterday a dear friend came over and we spent the whole day talking and sharing things about our families, animals, gardens, canning and more. It was a wonderful treat! We started chatting around 10 in the morning and realized at 3:30 that we each had errands to do. While she went to the feed mill for grain, I went to the post office to pick up and drop off packages. It was a wonderful day!

So today I will attempt to do "catch-up." The Etsy OFG member I would like to share with you is The Country Store.

1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name?

I chose The Country Store because I had a business that was called Quilted Critters & Things but evolved into other things and so The country
Store was born.

2. How long have you been on Etsy?

I have been on Etsy since February 1, 2010

3. What type of items do you offer?

I offer primitive items that are handmade by me. A lot of my items are stained for that primitive worn look.
4. How long have you been crafting?

I have been crafting for most of my life. In high school I started making hearts from a antique quilt and have been doing some kind of craft since then. I have my grandmother to thank for the crafty gene.

5. Who or What inspires you?

The primitive look in all forms inspires me. Especially the make do’s that were made when something broke or wore out and you make do with what you had.

6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why?

I love the wool owls that are made from vintage wool. I like to use vintage wool and fabrics.

7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog)

My blog is http://wwwthecountrystorepvks.blogspot.com/ my website is http://www.thecountrystorepvks.com and my Etsy is http://www.etsy.com/shop/Thecountrystore.
