“Primitives at the Ridge”

I didn’t even have to beg! hahaha!

We were traveling through SC when we spotted this neat very neat store. I absolutely LOVE prims and I’ve only been in a few primitive shops. (I’ve never seen one in Florida) Hubby spotted the shop and pulled right in. He was going to check his phone for emails, etc but we didn’t even have cell service there.

So I dashed inside and RAN through the store. The sweet couple that own the store were friendly and nice and told me to take as many photos as I wanted. I took just a few because I was still ‘dashing’. When you’re traveling, you don’t really like to make many stops along the way.

It was a fun diversion and I hope I get to stop when we go back through. I loved everything.

I’ll show you some pretty Fall things in my condo and what I bought soon!

A super stop to make! I'd have leapt out of the car with you but wouldn't have left too soon as its just my kind of store! Everything looks amazing and the picket fence is perfectly prim too!
Thanks for sharing and I look forward to seeing what you bought soon!

Looks like a great primitive shop. We have a couple of primitive shops here and I'm doing a Fall show on September 26th at one of them. I just finished up making things to take with me to the show. Love the fence!!

Ana said...

I love little shops like this. When we go on road trips and happen to come across any we always stop. Sounds like you two had a great time.

Hugs and Kisses,

Oh what a fun store - I had to look at all the pretties several times. When we travel we never have a time table - we just jaunt along, stopping whenever we feel like it, for as long as we like. It is nice to be able to get out and see a few things, especially a neat shop like this one. We love to find thrift shops when we travel too. We've been known to turn around and go back when something catches our eye as we pass. I hope you get to go back.
