Business Description
At the Princely Peasant , a "picker's paradise", Ric Bauer has been curating an artful gathering of his authentic one-of-a-kind finds since 1967, when he began man-roaming the back roads of rural Ohio, Pennsylvania, and Maryland while a Fine Arts student at Kenyon College.

As an artist/designer in a wide spectrum of both contemporary and traditional media, from photography to painting, from mixed media to sound and interior space design, and always the youthful collector, his keen artisan eye has never stopped sourcing the landscape for visually energetic and functionally exciting possibilities.

Simple and inviting collections, assembled from unique architectural artifacts, barn fresh primitives, as well as overlooked treasures from Grandma's attic become reclaimed, restored, and repurposed with elegant simplicity to serve our 21st century lifestyles and beyond.

Customers often encounter the surprise "anchor piece" that perfectly defines a projected and enduring legacy for their vision and esthetic, or maybe the one that completes and balances the corner of an enchantingly enigmatic room with just the right quiet confidence and grace.

Located just 6 miles south of Frederick, MD, in the charming "blink and you've missed it" village of Buckeystown, the Princely Peasant is open on the third Friday and Saturday of the month, April through October, or, by appointment. Flexible accommodation to customer visits hallmarks the friendly family of finds you'll encounter, wanting to return with frequency, so as not to miss perusing the ever-changing and inventive inventory.

This season's Grand Re-Opening on April 19th and 20th promises to present a fun-filled feeding-frenzy of all the treasures he's gathered and restored over a long and rewarding winter of roading and discovery for his ever-growing cliental of savvy seekers as well as more casual "first-timers".

"Dealer Discount Days" occur on the immediately preceding Mondays of the above monthly event schedule. (State sales tax number or other appropriate documentation considered for participation.)

You won't be disappointed!
