About us

A Little History

In November of 1994, Don and Mary Jane Schlichter opened the largest solid wood furniture retail store in the entire St. Louis Region. It is known as Mary Jane’s Solid Oak Furniture.

Don and Mary Jane were no strangers to serving customers with the highest quality service. For more than 20 years, Don and Mary Jane operated a very successful construction business in Mascoutah, IL. But, the woodworker in Don Schlichter took over.

Don is a Master Carpenter/Craftsman and his true labor of love, expertise and talent would not be denied. Don’s love of beautiful, superbly crafted solid wood furniture has become the driving force at Mary Jane’s Solid Oak Furniture. In fact, you will find that same passion with the entire Mary Jane’s staff.
