Primrose Antiques & Gifts

Springtime in Primrose

Celebrate Mother’s Day  Weekend at Christianson’s

If you haven’t been to Primrose recently you are in for a treat! This past winter our gift buyer ‘went to town’ (literally and figuratively) and found some wonderful new product lines for the coming year. As of mid-March we were excited to discover that we had introduced twenty new lines to our little shop. Twenty! There are new soaps and lotions, candles, natural cleaning products, greeting cards, journals and stationary, kitchen and edible items, cookbooks and garden-themed books, and beautiful new linens, housewares and home furnishings for springtime decorating and entertaining.

What are our favorite items, you ask? It’s hard to highlight just a few but here are some ‘Top Picks’ from our Primrose staff:

Angie loves all the organic shea butter soaps and hand creams from Mistral (especially the Narcissus Tuberose), the new linens and home decor from Sweet P and Indaba, and all the great new cookbooks for Spring.

Kassydee is a big fan of the natural olive oil soaps from Circle Creek Home (especially the Sweet Orange), as well as the new stationery items and vintage-looking postcards from Cavallini.
Eve is addicted to the Gardener’s Hand Treatment from Caren and the natural bristle body brushes from Andree Jardin. She also loves all the new soy candles from Magnolia Home and the beautifully wrapped handcrafted shea butter soaps from Formulary 55.

Toni and Brenda have their favorites as well but it’s our antiques and vintage wedding accessories that are nearest and dearest to their hearts. For those of you with a wedding in your future, Primrose has a unique collection of antique, vintage and handcrafted millinery flowers, wedding headdresses, tiaras, bouquets, corsages, and floral arrangements. Each piece was meticulously and artfully created – either years ago or recently by Toni – using a variety of materials, including antique or vintage combinations of tissue silk, linen, organza, cotton, wax, and fine ribbons. These everlasting floral arrangements and wedding accessories have a timeless, nostalgic beauty and make an elegant wedding keepsake.

We also have a small but beautiful collection of vintage wedding dresses, garters, hankies, nightgowns and slips, Mother of the Bride dresses, and satin bridal shoes and boots, as well as vintage gloves, floral garden hats and hat boxes.

Primrose is always a welcoming, enchanting place to visit, and this is especially true when she’s dressed up for springtime. Whether you’re seeking a bit of inspiration for spring decorating, or looking for something special for Mother’s Day, or you simply need a little gift for a friend, we are always happy to help and invite you to visit soon and often!
