MIFFLINBURG - Amy Evers and Courtney Evers have taken on a new enterprise with the opening of Primitive Thymes, 216 N. Third St.
The shop features home decor done in primitive country motifs.
"I have always loved country crafts," said Amy, "and when friends would come to our house they would always take note of my country decorations and said I should open a shop. So, I did!"
Mother-and-daughter team Amy Evers, left, and Courtney Evers, recently opened Primitive Thymes, a country decor store in Mifflinburg. It is open Wednesdays through Saturdays.
It began with burlap snowmen in October and November last year. All of a sudden, she and Courtney were making 30 or 40 of them as people saw them, loved them and ordered them.
Other unique items are old milk cans that have designs cut into them and are filled with a variety of items from lights to berries to candles. Another popular item is an antique strawberry box that has had some minor primitive motif work done on it.
The mother-and-daughter team also buy furniture at sales and then redo the items in a primitive style.
"We are doing a lot of shows now," Amy said, "and 80 to 90 percent of our sales are from items that we make right here."
The shop also features handmade items from other Mifflinburg-area craftspeople.
The shop is open from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. Wednesdays through Saturdays.
