Winnie Jean Mercantile is an apparel and home goods company founded in 2009 by Stephanie Creekmur. Based in Germantown, Ohio, Winnie Jean offers one of a kind pieces for your closet and home. Each design is hand lettered by Stephanie and our style is heavily influenced by her southern heritage and small town upbringing. We believe life's moments, both big and small, are meant to be celebrated and we hope our goods inspire you to share these moments with others.
SHE WHISTLES WHILE SHE WORKS, LOVES TO ENTERTAIN, AND BELIEVES EVERY DAY IS A GIFT AND MEANT TO BE CELEBRATED.

Stephanie is the owner and designer of Winnie Jean Mercantile. Each product is hand lettered and designed by her. Born southern in Nashville, Tennessee and raised in a small farming town in southwest Ohio, Stephanie has a penchant for a slower pace of life and products made in the USA.
She graduated from The Ohio State University with a degree in Communications and it was there she discovered her love for designing paper goods. She knew then she did not want to spend her life keeping up with the Joneses or climbing any corporate ladders. She wanted to create a life for herself that would allow her to follow her dreams, care for her (at the time, future) family, and give back to others.
Stephanie resides in Germantown, Ohio with her husband Jeremy, their son Tucker and their two dogs, Dixie and Fisher.
WHO IS WINNIE JEAN?
Winnie is what everyone calls my grandmother, Winifred and Jean is my mama's middle name (after my Grandpa Gene). These two ladies mean so much to me and have taught me to celebrate the small things. They have shown me how to have fun and love big. I hope to spread that message with every Winnie Jean order.
