It's about time our wonderful shop had a blog!!! It's such a great place filled with so many terrific items made in the USA (and mostly in Ohio) that we want to get the word out to as many people as we can.
Here's a little bite about our shop and how it all started...
Once upon a time... there were three gals, Phyllis, Christy and Cindi. Phyllis owned a building not far from the main street of town that had once housed a shop she called 'Grandma's Apron Stings'. Phyllis and Christy both worked for Ashland University so Phyllis, who made all kind of primitive goodies, knew Christy and her good friend Cindi made and sold Raggedy Ann dolls. One day Phyllis asked Christy if she and her friend would be interested in starting another shop in her building. Christy took one look at the inside of the building and thought it was a wonderful place. She called Cindi - that's me - explained what Phyllis had mentioned and said the inside of the building was so neat I should come and see it for myself. I took a look at the building inside and outside, agreed with Christy, talked all kinds of things over with Phyllis and came up with a plan to try an open house.
The Open House turned out very very well and three months later 'BackDoor Primitives' opened.
By the way our name came about because when we first opened there was an accountants office in the front of the building so the only way to come into the shop was through the back door.
