About Us

We are happy to welcome you to Primitive Designs! Ron, Rhonda, and Maximus have traveled the globe personally curating exotic and unusual antiques and handcrafted items from around the world. We are a family run business importing from Mexico, Indonesia, Thailand, and many other places. In our 8000 square foot gallery, you will find a market type atmosphere filled with treasures both for your family, your home, and your garden. The Primitive Designs family prides itself on filling our retail business with products that are free from child labour, bought at a fair market value, and produced by family-run businesses, many of which we have been working and friends with for over 40 years.
