About Up the Creek Antiques
Our Service PledgeWe respond to all orders within 24 hours, however finding an appropriate shipper and getting quotes may take several days. We guarantee the authenticity of all our items as noted in our descriptions.
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 closed our retail store and now deal directly with customers at our warehouse in Centralia. Some of our smaller items are now featured in a booth at Centralia Antique Mall so we need to check availability on those items before selling them to you. 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 retired now, but still provides significant help maintaining our workshop and keeping things running smoothly.
Our inventory is now ONLINE or can be seen at our warehouse by appointment by emailing us or phoning (360) 736-3529.
