Although the artists are typically unknown and untrained, the beauty of folk art lies in the time period each piece reflects, the local materials that were used, and the purpose behind each item.

Examples of folk art include: weather vanes, wood carvings, needlepoint, duck decoys, handmade furniture, old store signs, carousel horses, fire buckets, painted game boards, etc.

Folk art is primarily viewed as unusual, eye-catching, and one-of-a-kind. Whether you have a modern sense of style or consider your interior decor, "vintage chic," vintage fold art can add a pop of conversation to any room.
