Hours: Open 10am to 3pm Wednesday thru Friday — or any other day by appointment.  Starting Oct. 7th, we’ll be open on Saturday, too!

Folk Art & Great Finds

In a world of mass-produced imports, The Tweed Weasel Folk Art & Primitives is a refreshing return to handmade original work. All of the folk art you’ll find here is designed by Tish Bachleda. Since 2003, Tish has been recognized as one of the nation’s top traditional artisans for her hooked wool designs (Early American Life Magazine). Her husband Mike works in metals, clays, and artisan cards as well. Only a fraction of everything we offer is included on this website. It’s best to visit in person if possible.

Our 3,000 sq. ft. gallery is filled with seasonal folk art, primitive antiques, rusted steel garden designs, cement statuary, special gifts, and small finds.

Hours? We are often open more than the posted hours. Plus we can meet you any other day by appointment. Just call ahead.
