The Story

How We Got Started

We’re a family owned business located in Dixon, Illinois, inspiring others to take pride in their homes through the art of decorating.

At Fancy Farmhouse, our journey began with the simplest of beginnings. What began as a simple hand painted sign for one of our own homes has turned into a beautiful and thriving endeavor. We take pride in our products and aim to create only the best, most positive, fun and stylish pieces for you to showcase in your home or business.

When Fancy Farmhouse began in 2015, it was ran out of Ann's kitchen. After years of building their own furniture and making their own signs and decor, they realized that many women (like themselves) didn't have the time to spend hours and sometimes even days to complete that dream Pinterest project. And, Dixon didn't have a home décor store that offered handcrafted wood signs, apparel or farmhouse products. Due to their efforts, today we have a beautiful 1600 square foot storefront located in downtown Dixon that allows us to bring modern farmhouse décor and trendy clothing to people nationwide.

Handcrafted Wood Signs

We choose to create our signs with multi-ply plywood for long lasting durability and accidental drops.  Each sign is hand painted.  Although hand making our product does cause variations between the picture and the received item, we try our best to maintain quality and accuracy for each and every order.

Our Products

We offer handcrafted wood signs, holiday décor, handmade furniture by Jaime & Bryan Monk, handmade furniture by Sarah Gillette, burlap banners by Kelli Johnson, handmade cards by Anna Mainhart, dreamy rich green boxwood wreaths, cotton wreaths, stems and garlands, lots of the same products that can be found at bigger home décor stores and some of the same products that Joanna Gaines uses on HGTV's Fixer Upper and much more.
Over 50% of our inventory is hand-painted and built by your Fancy Farmhouse girls and friends.  The other decor goodies are hand-selected from only the best wholesale distributors across the United States as well as from a great group of talented friends of ours.  Teamwork makes the dreams work!

815 Gear

We are proud to announce that we are the original carriers of the famous 815 apparel in the SAUK VALLEY AREA. We offer 815 t-shirts, hooded sweatshirts, crew sweatshirts, totes, koozies, window decals and coffee mugs!  All of these items are made locally.

DIY Workshops

In December 2015, we hosted our first DIY Workshop and it was a hit!  We can fit up to 25 people in our shop, depending on the project!  We book 4-6 weeks in advance for private parties and host public parties throughout the month. Please go to the "workshops" tab to learn more.

Custom Orders

Our team can't wait to get to know you and create something special to fit your home or event!  Custom order slots fill up extremely fast.  We accept them as our schedule allows.  Due to the three of us having full-time careers outside of this little blessing of a hobby, we do have to respectively say no sometimes because we value time with our families.

Creativity + Individuality

With an affordable selection of boutique merchandise + modern farmhouse decor, Fancy Farmhouse provides a breath of fresh air to your closet and to your home and walls. At our boutique, you’ll find no cookie-cutter inventory, but rather a special collection of hand-selected items. We do our best to add new signs weekly to our storefront. We also try to get 10 new apparel pieces a week!

On-Trend Style

Our online boutique offers fun and laid back clothing pieces for women who seek to express themselves through effortless, creative, and individual style.
