About UsWhat began in 1975 as a way to furnish our first house developed into a full-time business. "Up the Creek Antiques" was a fitting name for a business that began 15 miles from the nearest town, Centralia, Washington. We have progressed from selling thru our own warehouse, to being a major dealer in antique malls around the Pacific Northwest, to having our own retail store in historic Downtown Centralia. As of January, 2015 we have closed our retail store and now deal directly with customers at our warehouse/workshop in Centralia. Feel free to browse our Ruby Lane store and don't hesitate to ask us if we have some other items you may be looking for.
*Sue, the owner along with her husband Dan can most frequently be found in the office end of the business. She deals with the websites, photographing, final assembly, upholstery, lighting and generally quality control. Sue graduated from the College of Wooster with a degree in studio art and has discovered that her art background has served her well in the field of antiques.
*Dan is somewhat retired now, but still provides significant help maintaining our workshop and keeping things running smoothly.
*Joe is the best refinisher we have ever had work for us. Here is a guy who started in this business in his teenage years and worked for various other shops before he came to us. Joe's pride in the finished product and willingness to try new techniques to improve his ability has taken our restorations to a whole new level of excellence. He is working independently thru our workshop doing restorations for folks who need his services.
Our showroom is now ONLINE or by appointment by emailing us or phoning (360) 736-3529.

Dan and Sue Horwath.
