Enter a world of a simpler time.... As you enter, you are embraced with warm scents and a great selection of Primitive, Colonial and Country home decor, custom made furniture and needful things.
We are Gerry and Tammy Charette, a husband and wife team with a passion for primitives and primitive style decoration! ★Our Journey began in 1999, when Gerry and I started by renting the 1st floor of this old house and opening The Bear Necessities Gift Shoppe....As we grew we knew we needed to meet the customers demand for more primitive displays and furniture. A GREAT opportunity to purchase the building and expand to the second floor made this all possible. We now have 2 stores for your shopping convience! For everyone who prayed, cared, helped, worked, painted, wash floors, brought us lunch, coffee, flowers, chocolates...Yup we have been blessed with many of our Family, Friends, and Customers caring and cheering us on! I personally thank my Husband Gerry Charette for working so hard to make this dream come true! Did I ever mention that "WE LOVE WHAT WE DO"? Gerry & Tammy
