About Us

We are a husband and wife team located in Fredericksburg, VA. We believe in creating quality hand crafted home decor and farmhouse signs, all at a great price! We use reclaimed and salvaged wood, whenever possible. We are always making new items, reinventing old ones and accept custom orders. We love what we do, love taking care of our customers, and this is our happy place! 

Kim is your first contact at Stubborn Mule Rustic Designs. She is the one chatting with you in conversations and making sure that all your questions are answered.  She's also the one that designs your signs to make you something special and unique for your home. 

Joe is the muscle behind Stubborn Mule Rustic Designs. He is also how we came up with our name, Stubborn Mule! His artistic vision takes plain wood and turns it into beautiful pieces to fill throughout your home. Together, Joe and Kim hand paint all of the wooden signs but Joe is the one that is always covered in  sawdust at the end of the day! 

To visit us in person, come to the North Stafford Farmers Market/Long Sunday Market located at the  Staffordboro (610) Commuter Lot (163-179 Staffordboro Blvd) in Stafford, VA.  The market is open every Sunday from 8 am to 1 pm, April through November.  Stop by and say hi, we would love to chat!
