from a dream to reality...
White Oak Mercantile.Com was once a dream, and with a lot of faith and hard work, it has become a reality.
It was brought up to owner, Stephanie Ann Lee, that local artisans had no where simple, online to showcase their work, other than Facebook and Etsy. She had the notion to help other local vendors; artisans with amazing products but lacked the time or technology to advertise them online. Starting with the seed of a dream and a lot of determination, she has gathered several other local vendors to showcase and sale their creative works. While the company is still in the founding/creation stages, they are continually growing and increasing their products and options. And White Oak Mercantile.com is always looking for new vendors!

Mae Day Baby Gifts
Hey there! I’m Nikki, a wife to an awesome husband and blessed to be able a stay at home homeschool mom to 3 fun kiddos. I had finally adjusted to being a boy mom when we found out baby number 3 was going to be a girl. Lyndi Mae has completely changed the dynamic of our household...for the better. She’s sweet, crazy and a tiny little daredevil, giving us a little Mae Day of our own sometimes (and she was unexpectedly born May 1, a May Day baby). She’s also inspired me to sew again, the things I make are generally some of the things I loved when Lyndi was little, some of them are things she likes now. Her big brothers like to be involved in this creative process too and a lot of the boy fabrics I use were picked by them. I love the freedom of creativity and mixing and matching fabrics so there’s a good chance no item on here will ever be exactly the same.
