A couple of weeks ago, Frank and I took a couple of day trips around and about his neck of the woods. We drove to Port Hope, Ontario and visited an antique and craft store called Primitive Designs. We'd seen it advertised in one of those freebie magazines which offer suggestions about where to go and what to do in the area. Their Native Canadian crafts and imports from Southeast Asia intrigued us, prompting us to visit.
We spent over an hour looking over the many beautiful and unique items, and left with a carload of purchases. Among them, a huge coffee wood plant stand, a wooden crow, a carved wooden dragonfly which balances delicately on a stand, some incense and ...
a totem pole which now resides at Frank's place. (please click to enlarge)
The place is set up as a series of well-sheltered tents outdoors. It's cold inside but after a awhile you scarcely notice it. You're too busy looking at all of the fascinating pieces of art. (please click to enlarge)
Can you imagine placing one of these huge garden sprits in your back yard? (please click to enlarge)
She's got legs and she knows how to use them - as a table support, of course. (please click to enlarge)
There were far too many items to show in separate photographs so I put the rest of them together in a three minute video. I hope you enjoy it.
In a few days, I'll have some photos taken around and about our day trip.
