We stopped in while we were in the area. The store is wonderful and the owner is friendly and interesting. There are a lot of interesting things in his two stores. My husband bought a knife here. Very cool place.

interesting pieces of art/work. Very well displayed. Looked like they have a live workshop where you could see them working on the newer pieces. Their expo a few doors down is also worth a visit.

The Blacksmith shop and the Mercantile are my 2 favorite places to visit. Both of these stores are a cornerstone of Ferndale. I look forward to visiting them each trip

There is actually a blacksmith on site in this very interesting shop. Many of his creations (from hooks to sculpture) are on display. He will also take orders for special items.

Beautiful crafstmanship by many different artists. There were many pieces that were way beyond my means ($$$) but there were just as many that were reasonably priced. Large assortment of jewelry and other hand crafted items.
