Mike and Donna Brown, the owners and crafters behind Brown's Country Originals, are a husband and wife artist team with approximately 20 years experience in making decorative pieces. After selling their items at craft fairs, Mike and Donna decided to venture into the online marketplace and opened Brown's Country Originals in 2008. When Mike and Donna are not crafting or selling their items at craft fairs, they enjoy fishing, camping and spending time with each other, their son and Beagle.
Mike and Donna make an assortment of goods using wood, chalk, hypertufa (a light weight concrete), paper mache, clay, flowers (dried, fresh and artificial) and basket reed. Mike and Donna also have a line of garden items; Donna makes hypertufa birdbaths, flower planters and flower pots and Mike makes wooden potting benches, planter and garden stakes.
