Trindy Primitives Is My Latest Addiction

Last fall, a couple of talented women Lisa works with opened up a shop filled with gorgeous handcrafted home decor. The weekend of their grand opening I was swamped with work, but I scheduled in some time for us to visit Trindy Primitives. I'm glad I did.

I walked through their quaint little shop in awe. The pieces radiate a unique charm. A lot are made out of rustic oak wood and re purposed antique finds. I could have easily spent several hundred dollars. We left with this piece and it's hanging in our kitchen.

About a month ago I caught wind they needed a little help making an online presence. This is one of the many things I do for work. I didn't hesitate to assist. The two women who own this business are fantastic, hard working, talented and their sense of humor is out of this world.

Having a sense of humor goes a long way with me. 

What I admire the most is their work is from scratch. They don't go to Michael's, buy a pre-made, natural wood object, paint it, throw a few accessories on and call it a day. Their handcrafted goods start with rustic, reclaimed oak. They cut, measure, sand, put it together, and add their final touches. It's the real deal.

Lisa and I visited their shop a couple of weekends ago to snap some photos, take a tour and come up with a plan of action to get the word out. We left with this beautiful Welcome bench planter. It's one of the new additions to their spring and summer collection.

And, rumor has it they're going to make some pieces for the pet parents out there. I'm super excited about that and you can bet we'll be grabbing some of those.

Until then, we're adding is this to our collections shortly. Lisa has a tendency to throw the mail on the table or counter. The keys hang from a thumbtack on our dry erase cork board combo. This rustic gem will keep everything in one place.

Lisa and I support our local artisans. We'd much rather purchase handmade items from our talented locals than a big retailer. 

If you have a few minutes to spare, check out their Trindy Primitives Facebook page. They're located in Pomfret Center in Connecticut. A lot of their pieces can be custom made with your color of choice and various size options. It's worth taking a look!

I'll definitely keep you posted on the doggy themed stuff!
