A Simple Gathering of All Things Primitive and Country

About Us

Sandy Spier...

Born and raised in Joliet, Illinois.  I married my husband Scot in 1992 and a year later we moved to LaCrosse Wisconsin.  I have enjoyed a long career in retail.  I was a manager with Kohl's for 7 years and a general manager with Old Navy for 3 years upon returning to the DeKalb area.

I remember the first time I attended the Kane County flea market... I was hooked.  My heart would start beating fast with each new bargain that I would find.  A friend would ask "what are you going to do with that?"  I wasn't really sure but I knew that I could find a new purpose for some of that "junk".  I remember thinking that my dream would be to find a way to make a living by shopping at the flea market.  So...a small pile of treasures started accumulating in my basement in hopes that one day I could open up my very own shop.

That dream came true in May 2006 when I opened Poppy Seed Primitives.

Owning my own business has been an amazing experience. ...truly a dream come true.  I'm one of the few people who can't wait to get to work every day.  I could not have reached this level of success without your loyalty, support and friendship throughout the past 14 years.  

However, it's time to start a new chapter.  I'm not sure what that looks like but I can't wait to explore the possibilities as Scot and I look forward to traveling and spending more time together.

Thank you for allowing me and my dogs to play a small role in your lives.  You will always hold a special place in my heart.
