Our Story

We love living here on Bainbridge Island, WA where you can live like a farmer yet, are just a ferry boat ride away from the big city.

The story of Bainbridge Mercantile is pretty simple: our family moved to an old historic farmhouse with a large vegetable and flower garden, pond and many old fruit trees. After building a chicken coop and getting chicks, I decided to create a few lively, colorful signs to spruce up our coop and decorate the garden. What started as a colorful way to liven up the chicken coop and garden gate began to catch the eyes of friends and neighbors. One thing lead to another and the cheerful designs evolved into Bainbridge Mercantile with an ever growing collection of products.

All our products are made from scratch right here on Bainbridge Island! From design through production we work hard to create the highest quality products and keep jobs in our community. 

Bainbridge Mercantile has been featured in many blogs and national magazines including Taste of Home, Mary Jane's Farm, and was a top 20 finalist in Martha Stewart's "American Made".
