Thanks for shopping CreekSideCountry. We hope that you like our products. All of our primitive pieces are designed, hand painted personally by me, Phyllis Wenzel, in our own workshop. I have been painting oil and acrylics for over 30 years and I am still taking art classes.

For many years my husband, Jim, and I operated a True Value Hardware Store in Midland, Michigan. We now specialize in high quality reproduction primitive and grungy wood shelving, signs, and primitive accessories. Primitives, Early American and antiques have always been our way of decorating (45 yrs), which lends to our ability to design our pieces to look like the old originals, We have traveled over the years to such places as Greenfield Village, Ford Museum, Colonial Williamsburg, Gettysburg, Mt. Vernon, Lebanon, Ohio Shaker Museum, Monticello, antique shows, antique shops and have researched their way of life as well as first hand experience on an aunts farm without electricity. We built our own new home to look old using the old Colonial Williamsburg trim throughout.

The internet has extended a new way to serve the public. Good services has always been our best policy. Please email me if you have any questions or special requests and I will try my best to help you out. I appreciate you as a customer.

All of our primitive items are handcrafted by CreekSideCountry from design to construction and finishing. Our furniture type finish is a multi step process. It takes some time to build and apply the furniture type finish to each piece. It is Jim and I making your primitives in our home woodworking shop. Construction can take up to 20 days. You may choose your color choice from our Color Chart. Please leave a message of your choice when placing order. I will confirm this with you. If your item needs drastic changes in size there is an additional charge of $10.00 for the changes to the pattern.

We also have our products on our web site

Thanks - Jim and Phyllis

Following are comments from our customers:

""Hi Jim and Phyllis,
We received our order of the bunny and pig cutting boards, the stove top cover, and the table bench. My entire family adores these pieces. Thank you so much, and thank you for the coupons and the $25 mailing refund from the last order.
I have two questions for you. First of all, I was trying to find out how I could rate your website, but I couldn't find a way to do this. We are extremely happy with your unique gift and wanted to say something.
Also, is there anyway that you could make the large primitive thermostat/door bell cover any larger? I need something that is 16" wide. I would, of course, expect to pay more for this.
Please let me know. I plan to order before the 15th and the coupon expires ".
