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.

June is busting out all over

June 3rd, 2016 by

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.
