Our Story - About Us

 

 Welcome to Ranch Junkie Mercantile. We are a husband (Shawn) and wife (Erin) team that have a passion for handcrafting, finding and sharing our rustic/farmhouse and vintage home decor that can make your house a home. We our also growing our mini lifestyle boutique that will fit your fun, lighter side of your lifestyle.

My husband Shawn and I have two kids. We met in college at Tarleton State University in Stephenville Texas (a small Texas college known for the Rodeo Capital of the World) and have been attached at the hip ever since.

Why the name Ranch Junkie Mercantile? We have two beautiful ranches in the Texas hill country and that is our happy place. It is our piece of mind, inspiration and everything that describes us- Ranch Junkies. We thought it also described our products as well- Rustic/Farmhouse style decor and Boutique.

We started Ranch Junkie in 2017 and haven't looked back. It has been a roller coaster of small business emotions balancing family and kids and giving our passion for this business 100% but we wouldn't have it any other way. Let me just tell you, we do a happy dance every time you purchase something from us, so for that, we can't thank you enough as you are supporting our dream. It is just the two of us (and sometimes our 8 year old daughter is a great helper) running the daily operations... building, buying, photography, website design and everything else in between that entails owning a business, so when I say small business I REALLY mean we are small business.

We have a passion for building quality products, finding amazing unique products to sell and supporting other handmade makers as well as finding unique vintage finds that will never go out of style and have a story that runs deep. We put our heart and soul in every piece we sell or handcraft from start to finish.

Shawn grew up in southeast Texas and had a grandfather that was an amazing wood worker. He showed him all the ropes plus some creative wood working secrets and gave Shawn that passion for quality wood work which he has now turned into a main part of our business with our shelving, framed flags, serving trays and decorative crates and boxes. He is absolutely one talented wood worker and does nothing short of perfection for each piece he creates. Every piece Shawn makes is a little part of his grandfather's work for which Shawn hopes he is proudly watching over him and smiling. Shawn was a Managing Director for a Fortune 500 company for 15 years and now has put his blood, sweat and tears into our business.

Myself (Erin)- I grew up in a place called Fredericksburg, TX. I have always had a passion for marketing, creative and DIY projects probably in part thanks to my DIY grandmother who still does all kinds of crafts and art. I still ask for her advice on certain projects and new ideas. I was a product manager/brand manager for a Fortune 500 watch company for almost 10 years until I chose to stay home with my babies. This gave me amazing business, marketing, creative and product experience which gave me the courage to start our own business. I absolutely enjoy creating signs and other wood/paint projects, as well as finding perfect pieces that would fit in our Ranch Junkie world and decided it was time to make it a business.

Well, my husband says go big or go home so we are trying to go big!

We love what we do and we hope you love our work/products as well. We hope to keep growing, learning and coming up with new and unique products so keep us in mind and share our store with anyone you may think would like Ranch Junkie Mercantile and would like to support small business.

Thanks for checking out Ranch Junkie and take a look around, you might find something that will make your house a home that was made with heart or found with love. We will continue to do a happy dance every time someone chooses to support our dream by purchasing something from Ranch Junkie Mercantile. Thank you,

Shawn and Erin

Beautiful piece for my table

Love the bowl- it is great for my dining room table. I filled it with natural ball decor and potpourri- it turned out beautiful

Large southwestern duffle

So far so good. Seems to be quality, like it could possibly last a long time. Big enough. The price for the quality seems equal

Happy I ordered

I spent three years looking at various websites for something to fill a large wall space in living room over the TV. My furniture is a mix of mid-century and transitional but I really like to mix it up. I saw this and decided to bite the bullet. It arrived quickly and well packaged. Love the wreath it came with. Although the main area over the TV is my primary concern, this can also be placed over my bed. So...had a friend hold it up over the TV so I could see how it will look. It will work great but I will be hanging horizontally and will have to purchase two hanging holders for the piece and will need help installing. When it finally gets hung, I will update this with a picture.

Perfect

The Rustic Wall Window is just what I was searching for to fill the area on a tall wall in my country home. It looks just the way I envisioned and I love it. I could not be happier with my purchase.
