MONDAY MARKETPLACE-OLD FARMHOUSE GATHERING SHOPS

This is my first Monday Marketplace feature for the Old Farmhouse Gathering etsy team and I couldn't think of a better business to feature than Firecrackerkid Primitives. Carol and her husband make a fantastic team! I can attest to the quality of the work produced by this dynamic duo because I have purchased two very high quality handmade wooden items and will definitely be back to purchase more! Please read on to meet Carol and to gain a little insight to this wonderful artisan!


1. What is the name of your Etsy shop and why did you choose that name? Firecrackerkid Primitives. Well, I chose this name, because I'm crafty and I was born on the 4th of July. My family always called me "firecrackerkid". My father always told folks that when I was born I came out with a bang. Put that little fact, Independence Day, my love of primitives and my country, plus I don't think we ever grow up, and you get Firecrackerkid Primitives.


2. How long have you been on Etsy? Since March 30, 2008.


3. What type of items do you offer? One-of-a-kind Woodcrafts and reproduction woodcrafts like different Early American dough bowl racks and Primitives.


4. How long have you been crafting? Twenty-five years.


5. Who or What inspires you? The love of all things Primitive, my e-friends, and my husband.


6. What is your favorite item in your shop and why? That would be our one-of-a-kind items. We like to come up with unique primitive woodcrafts that are appealing to others, and are functional in the home.


7. Other places where you can be found (Ebay, webstore, blog
