West Main Creation's Story
West Main Creations' Story
West Main Creations began, like most things, with an idea. An idea to help people turn houses into homes by providing beautiful, affordable decor pieces.
Why West Main?
In May 2018, West Main Creations was created by a mother and daughter team, Sherry and Emilee. The name West Main comes from our family’s home address. Built by our dad and grandpa over 20 years ago, our house on West Main has long been home. Not long after deciding on the name, Emilee found a metal street sign bearing the same name. It was a literal sign that West Main was the right name for our company.
Becoming ‘The Team’
West Main Creations was officially launched to the public on June 17, 2018. By this time, Sherry and Emilee had added a couple more players. Our only brother, Nate, and his wife, Kenzie, became valuable members of the team. West Main Creations would not function without these two. In August, another sister, Stacee, was added and ‘The Team,’ was complete.
Road Bumps and Blessings
Shortly after launching our company, we had a serious road bump. Nate had a seizure, which was completely unexpected. After being rushed to the hospital, and a CT scan, Nate was told he had a mass on his brain. A biopsy confirmed what we all prayed it wasn’t: cancer. With humble hearts, we pleaded that God would help Nate to fight and beat this cancer. God is good all the time. We have received many blessings since the day Nate had his seizure. He was able to have surgery to remove the tumor. Nate completed radiation in the fall and is currently undergoing chemotherapy treatments. We have great hope for the future. We have also been so blessed by your support. Your sweet comments and interactions, in person or through social media, have uplifted us. Thank you for sharing the journey with us.

Nate & Kenzie
Nate and Kenzie (husband and wife) have been around since the beginning. Nate dabbles in photography, graphic design, and web design. Being the only guy, he usually is the one that says that looks good when we are ordering products, as he has no idea what looks good and what doesn’t (his words). McKenzie helps Stacee and Nate out with product inventory on our website.
Nate and Kenzie have a little baby boy that is beyond spoiled with another one on the way. The one that is on the way (due in July) will be their first HUMAN child and the other is a liver and white Springer Spaniel.
