Pearce’s Craft Shop
We’re a Husband & Wife team that enjoy crafting unique items for your home decorating and gift-giving needs. Pearce’s Craft Shop offers a variety of Animals, Dolls, Ornaments, Bowl Fillers, Shelf Sitters, Decorative Candles, Floral Arrangements, Wreaths, Homespun Runners, Mini Pillows, Candle Holders, Benches, Shelves, Folk Art Patterns, Seasonal Decor and More. You’ll also find an ever changing assortment of vintage collectibles, unique re-purposed items and handmade one-of-a-kind pieces.
We are home to the original Cave Creek Folkart Brand which offers a wonderful assortment of Primitive Patterns. When the previous owner decided to retire at the end of 2015 and sell Cave Creek Primitives, my husband and I were excited to have the opportunity to purchase the business in its entirety as a subsidiary of Pearce’s Craft Shop LLC. We promised to keep Cave Creek Primitives going and continue offering all of the wonderful quirky designs to the public.
Over the past few years, Cave Creek Primitives patterns and designs have been available exclusively through Pearce’s Craft Shop LLC to the delight of our customers. We have and are currently developing new designs and patterns to expand the Cave Creek Primitives product line. And, we are eager to grow the Cave Creek Primitives brand with quality handmade items while continuing to provide the excellent customer service our loyal customers have come to know and trust.
We enjoy crafting Custom Orders and delighting our customers with the results as you can read in our Shop Reviews section. Send us a message if you’d like us to craft something special for you or if you’d like to modify an item we already sell. We sell our inventory online, at consignment shops, craft shows and from our on-site retail showroom. And, if you’re in the neighborhood stop by and see us in person.
