Our friends Curtis Heuser of Interior Visions, 404 Fairfield Avenue, and Barb Weideman of the Cozy Cottage, 307 Fairfield Avenue in Bellevue are moving their joint venture of Farmhouse Primitives to the Fort Thomas Antiques and Design Center. They are stocked and open for business! The move allows for increased business hours and it is a great central location. Hours are great, M-F 7am-9pm, Sat. 9am-6pm, Sun, 11am-6pm.
Farmhouse Primitives specializes in primitive style mix of old and new. They offer a variety from small, decorative accents, to lighting and furniture. You will be able to place an order for a custom made farmhouse table up to 10 feet long. They are crafted from at least 100 year old barn wood, assembled with pegs and repurposed square nails that are authentic to the barns.
Curtis is an accomplished mural and custom finish painter and the author of YOUR HOME a Living Canvas. Barbara Weideman is a Dayton resident and a creative seamstress. Her work varies from clothes and accessories made to fit the American Girl Dolls, to unique kitchen towels, pot holders, and my personal favorite would be the bags she makes from posters. Bring her two posters and she will craft them into a tote that is fabulous for carrying paperwork! Leather strap handles with jeweled fasteners; I get compliments on them all the time! http://www.cozycottagebellevueky.com
So during the winter months when you feel that you and your space could use some brightening up stop in and see the great things Farmhouse Primitives has to offer! Sallye Ander soaps and candles to totally unique furniture! American made and locally crafted items are at the forefront of this venture.
Fort Thomas Antiques and Design Center is located at 90 Alexandria Pike in the Former Fischer Homes site, and includes Highlander Coffee House. Comfy seating and tables surround the coffee bar for a great meeting spot. In January the will have a liquor license in place to serve wine. http://www.nkyantiques.com/ Rob Robinson has created a great spot with pleasant music playing while you shop or sip your Fair Trade and locally roasted coffee!
