Yankee Girl Dry Goods

Primitive treasures from my heart and hands.


Welcome to Yankee Girl Dry Goods, my page here on Primitive Handmades Mercantile.  My name is Michelle Blanco and I am so very honored to be a part of this wonderful group of artists.  

I have been sewing and creating since I was a very young girl, learning from my mom and grandmother. I cannot remember a time when I did not have a needle and fabric in my hands.  I love working with all types of fabrics but my passion is working with vintage materials. I have been collecting antiques with my husband for many years and always try to incorporate something vintage in my work. 

I hope you enjoy my creations as much as I enjoyed creating them for you.

I accept PayPal, Money Orders and Personal Checks.



These chilly guys stand 15" tall and are made of very grungy warm and natural fabric. They are sporting striped overalls, a red scarf and a floppy black hat. They each have somewhat different expressions. Their wool trees are removable. They do not stand on their own but look great propped up or tucked in a basket. As with all of my creations, these are not toys and should not be handled by anyone under the age of 12. Please indicate the letter next to your preference when emailing me. Kindly asking $65.00 and $6.00 postage.
These sweet Santas were made using a pattern by T.F.C. Folk Art. They are approximately 7" tall and are made using vintage quilt scraps or wool. Their beards are made from sheeps wool. Please indicate your number choice when emailing. Kindly asking $24.00 and $4.50 postage. #1 is sold
This tiny primitive doll was made using a pattern by T. F. C. Folkart. She is stained with walnut ink, giving her that perfect prim look. She is a tiny 11" long. She wears a soft, cream colored frock with greenery and a candy cane in her pocket. As with all of my creations, she is not a toy and should not be given to children under 12years old.
I just love these guys! They were made using a vintage chenille blanket that was too worn to save. They are attached to a vintage bedspring so they will stand on their own. I added a rusty bell tied to the spring with a strip of wool. Their top hats have a hint of snow, greenery and an old button. They are approximately 11" tall. Since I love to repurpose vintage linens and findings, these guys were perfect for that. Please add if you would like the snowguy with a red mouth or a tan mouth. Kindly asking $38.00 and $6.00 postage
