Just a few months ago it was 90 degrees and now that late fall is upon us those days are just a memory. Now the shop is decorated for the season and Christmas season music flows thru the shop and on weekends, HOT Cider and homemade Cookies are served. I can’t list everything that we have for Christmas but we have Stacy Arnetts Santas and World of Sinterclaus Santas made right here in Oregon by Illa Lafever (she has been doing Santas for us for 33 years).Their are also Santas and snowmen gourds from Pennsylvania. When you visit we guarantee it will be snowing! You will also find holiday garlands, wreaths, candle rings that will make your table sparkle and a great selection of holiday lights, some electric, solar and battery and the bulbs are extra tiny and really make your display glow. Come into American At Heart and feel and smell the spirit of the Country. Always buying primitives. Free parking in the rear of the building.
It’s starting to look like fall, the shop is too! Come in and see the collection of antique granite ware that just arrived and antique stoneware pudding mold…..some real great ones!Also fall folk art, hops on a stem to decorate your cupboards or mantles, these look real.If you put the twinkle lights on the mantle and add the hops…you will love it. I decorate around my twinkle lights each season…it adds so much to the great room. Please remember we have a new schedule…..open thursdays thru sunday, same hours 11 to 4:30 thursday thru saturday and 12 to 4 on sunday. Mark your calendars for our next to events,FALL OPEN HOUSE: September 14 & 15, CHRISTMAS OPEN HOUSE November 3 & 4. We all look forward to seeing you!

It is my pleasure to seek out the finest items for the shop…it is what I live for! We look forward to seeing you soon.
This is the beginning of our 32nd year….what a wonderful ride it has been. Harold has sent us 2 of his handmade houses, these two with dormers and wide front porches, we also have some of his cottages.
Roger Mason of Virginia made two Colonial candle stands. These are perfect for the primitive or colonial home. We only get a few each year.
Bruce from Indiana sent a selection of his RAG lampshades, these are also great for the country home. You just can’t find anything as nice as these anywhere. We have about 1500 shades in stock all the time.
In the rug room is a nice assortment of RAG rugs in assorted sizes….plus more braided rugs from Donna in North Carolina.
If you have always wanted to try CHALK PAINT, we have the recipe to make it yourself using OLDE CENTURY COlOURS paint. It is so inexpensive! And we have the paint in 32 colors.
I just brought in a three legged candle stand, circa late 1800’s. Antiques have been selling well since I only buy what fits with Colonial, Primitive or Country.
I can’t list all the items I bring in, but items come in each week.
Many customers have been asking for bee skeps and after searching high and low, I found some. They come in 3 sizes, are natural straw and in limited supply. We love the way they look in the garden. Coming May 1st, our annual sale. Everything in the store will be on sale up to 15%. Also in the replacement lids with pumps for soap jars. You can add these to you own jars, pints or quarts. Also in, solar lids with 12 lights on 46″ string. Use indoors or out. Water resistant.Great for patio lighting, walkway, garden accents and more.

We will be receiving our spring shipment of rockers around the end of the month, American made, solid oak, lifetime guarantee. For you crafters , just in a large selection of end pieces from Family Heirloom Weavers (all patterns) for making runners, pillows,etc. Battery, flameless candles are still a hit, some with timers.Ray brought in a few of his handmade wooden crows set on wood turnings, what a nice accent for on a mantle. Paul has been very busy with special orders of his shaker furniture, but……he is having knee replacement next month and that will set him back a bit. Orders placed now will delivered in June or July.
How fast time flies, just a few weeks ago we were celebrating Christmas. We all hope yours was wonderful with family and friends and Happy New Year to you all. We have been busy refilling the shop with lots of antiques: 1800’s dry sink, 1800’s wonderful two piece hutch, lots of 1800’s brown sealing wax canning jars, wood (out of round) bowls from the 1800’s, one that is 14 inches across (a rare find). New lamp shades, lighting and flameless candles (that have been a popular item) different sizes. Yesterday we received more Cinnamon rose hips from our friend in upstate New York and Photographer Denice from Michigan sent the most wonderful photo cards that are blank inside and the best primitive photos taken in historic homes of the midwest and east coast, these can be used for any occasion because they are blank inside, you will love them. We have been receiving primitive antiques and new decorating items weekly. It’s so much fun when new items come in and we get to decorate around the shop and make it homey for you. Stop by and say hi, we look forward to seeing you.
