Welcome To The Prim Merchant 

The Prim Merchant was born out of a love of antiques and all things primitive.  Each piece of folk art featured here has been handmade, taking great care in quality, design and workmanship, three characteristics we take very seriously.  And every piece is signed by the artist.  Our patterns have been tried and tested to assure ease of instructions and assembly in order that you can make your very own primitive.  So, grab a cup of tea, sit back and enjoy the journey as we strive to preserve the past for future generations.

About The Prim Merchant.... In a world where computers, ipods and cellphones have dominated our lives, the time-honored arts of our forebears has lost its way, or, in most cases, simply forgotten. The wonderful knowledge of sewing, painting, and creating has given way to technology. Through inspiration, encouragement and motivation, we strive to recreate and teach the lost or ’forgotten’ arts. Our goal is to preserve the past for future generations. Teaching naïve arts to children through 4-H groups and summer programming at recreation centers and camps, we feel our goal is being reached and beyond. 

We are a philanthropic group, gladly donating our time, efforts and a portion of our profits to benefit others. We have donated to purchase books for a local library and given of our time and inventory to the Lancaster Folk Art Society whose goal is to keep the naive arts alive and to the further betterment of our christian community through participation at The Barnful of Quilts held in Waxhaw, NC each October. 

Join with us as we provide a little bit of the past for the future through simplicity. But most of all remember: live, laugh, love and learn.
