"We put a lot of time into scouting our lines, looking anywhere between New York and California. Our customer is a high-end specialty store that wants something unusual and not mass-produced. We try and find something the customer will pass down to their children. We also believe, if you take the extra step for the customer, they will appreciate it and always remember you."--Patricia L. Holton and Earl C. Jones

"At Creative collections, we seek the current trends and try to incorporate them into our collection. We then try to guide our customers. We are not just here to take an order.
