Local Business Spotlight: Country Charm Furnishings

Popular Downtown Country Store Announces Change of Ownership
Custom-made furniture and accent pieces for holiday gift-giving

On Sunday November 29th, Country Charm Furnishings in downtown Phoenixville said goodbye to Nancy Munro, founder and co-owner of the unique country furniture and design store located at 28 S. Main Street. Fellow owner, Stephanie Wenitsky, who threw a going away party for her business partner, will be taking over as the sole proprietor. Nancy and Stephanie became partners in May of 2009, after Nancy had been open at the Phoenixville location since October 2008. According to Wenitsky, recent changes in her partner’s life initiated the change in ownership.

Wenitsky and Munro met through Craigslist while Wenitsky was looking for a country-style sofa table. She discovered Nancy’s country furniture business, which was then called Nancy’s Country Furniture. At the same time, Wenitsky had a small home-based business selling country décor. After months of talking, they decided to combine their efforts and chose to remain in the Phoenixville location as Country Charm Furnishings. “I am originally from Philadelphia, and Phoenixville’s history and culture remind me of neighborhoods like Germantown and Manayunk,” states Wenitsky. “I couldn’t think of a better place than Phoenixville to have my store, and I hope to be open here for many years!”

Country Charm Furnishings is not just another home décor or country store. One of the most unique features of the store is that it offers custom-made furniture, including pieces as large as farm tables, hutches, jelly cabinets and coffee tables and as small as clocks, mirrors, shelves and bread boxes. The plethora of charming Victorian homes and quaint townhomes in the Phoenixville area create a demand for quality, hand-made country furniture pieces.

“When people are looking for a piece of furniture, they usually have a visual of what their perfect piece would look like,” Wenitsky reports. “My customers often tell me that they have searched high and low for their perfect piece -- with the color they want and dimensions they need -- but they couldn’t find it until they came here.” At Country Charm Furnishings, Wenitsky guides customers through the decision-making process, including all of the available colors and stains to match the home.

Wenitsky indicated that the usual turn-around time for a custom piece is approximately two to three weeks. Due to the holiday rush, it may take longer, but Country Charm Furnishings will provide a special gift card that tells the recipient that a custom-made piece is being made especially for them. Country Charm Furnishings has sample and ready-to-go pieces in the downtown store, as well. During the holiday season, the store is open Wednesday through Saturday from 11:00 a.m. through 8:00 p.m., and Sunday from 11:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Wenitsky is also available to customers for special appointments. Stephanie Wenitsky can be contacted at (484) 924-8136 and swenitsky43@comcast.net. Country Charm Furnishings’ website is www.countrycharmfurnishings.com.
