I visit Friday Harbor about twice a year and ALWAYS visit Island Studios--and ALWAYS find some special gift or keepsake to take away. However, the real reason I go is to visit the koi...what beauties they are...a little treasure for me.

I fell in love with this gallery, and every time we walked by, I had to stop and look again. I especially liked the outdoor section in the back, with all of the colorful garden art. The art on display inside is all by very talented local artists, and wonderful.

This is my favorite shop in town. I spend 1-2 hours there when I shop. They sell merchandise made by local artists and artisans. A wide range of products from paintings to soap and garden art. The music they play is even from a local musician. Very friendly and knowledgeable staff.

If you only visit one shop in Friday Harbor, this is the place to go for the best collection of art made by locals in a wide range of mediums -- glass, pottery, wood, jewelry, photography, garden delights (fish pond/garden out back), and much more. Delightful browsing and great gift shopping!

This is such a great place to visit! Lots of local artists with an incredibly diverse selection from jewellery to weaving, pottery, paintings, prints, wood work and more. In the back, there is an amazing garden with plantings in all sorts of unusual containers, and wonderful sculptures and other garden art. We always visit when we're in Friday Harbour!

Very quirky store. I did not purchase anything but enjoyed the garden. They have succulents planted in just about anything!
