I am sure everyone who goes to La Conner visits the Wood Merchant; if they don't, they should. This is truly craftsmanship at its very best. The range of items and the creativity of the 200 artisans represented are amazing. For anyone who loves wood or appreciates outstanding skill, this is a must.

So much to see at The Wood Merchant, and all of it is beautifully handcrafted. Great place to buy a piece of art or well made furniture.

Visited to see if we could find a coat rack with flat mount....helpful staff pointed us to several possibilities. When I expanded our plans, they suggested that their craftsmen could customize a piece for us. Then we looked around this beautiful store, looking at hand crafted rockers, table with four place setting, table with six place setting, and everywhere you... More

What a great eye candy shop for folks who love beautifully made works of art useful and decorative wood items. Museum quality is the standard for this store. We always go there in La Conner WA, even if there's only time for one shop.

This store has beautiful hand crafted wood items. We purchased some unique wood chop sticks and saw many items that we would love to have in our homes. Stop by and take a look you won't be disappointed.

This store has beautiful and unique items all made out of wood. There are jewelry boxes, watches, necklaces, furniture, bowls, rocking chairs (very comfortable). It is quite expensive but you can always dream. There are affordable items too. Unique items of very high quality...prices are reasonable for the work involved in making the items. Would go back again.

My husband's a carpenter and he was amazed by this store and so was I. It's a showroom of woodwork craftsmanship. Hopefully my husband got some ideas, time will tell.
