About Primitives Past

Greetings and welcome! All my items are handmade and carefully designed in the spirit of Early American folk art.

My hope is that my creations will take you back to a simpler time reminiscent of the 19th century. Each piece is designed, handmade, and aged so that no two pieces are exactly alike.

Please come, browse, and enjoy my creations!

Follow me on Pinterest Pam Gill
Thanks!
