“Very Impressive!!!!”
Reviewed September 1, 2014

First time back to La Conner in over 20 years and very impressed with The Wood Merchant. No doubt there is a revolving list of artists/craftspersons so we will be visiting this store again. By far the best selection of different wood art we have seen. If you want earrings, they have it……if you want coffee tables, they have it…….and if you want carvings, they have it.

“Wow!”
Reviewed August 13, 2014

What a selection! The woodworking is beautiful, and service was excellent. Prices seemed reasonable, and there was something for everybody, and everybody's budget. Both an art gallery and a gift shop.

“Don't miss shopping at this store!”
Reviewed October 27, 2013

A wonderful selection of crafts, furniture and games made of wood. We purchased a beautiful clock crafted with fused glass, metal and wood. The friendly staff shipped the clock home for us and it arrived as promised.

“Beautiful woodworks!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

This shop is filled to the brim with outstanding woodworking from NW artists. From small pieces to huge tables, chairs and chests it's all here - everything you could imagine and then some. We have many pieces purchased here over the years and love them all. The owners are wonderful - friendly and knowledgeable. We visited them quite recently and although our previous visit was a year prior they remembered us! This shop is an absolute must-see when you are anywhere in the area - you will not be disappointed. They truly have something for everyone and allow plenty of time to see it all.

“Beautiful art wood”
Reviewed March 24, 2013

I made a special trip to La Conner (OK - it's only a 45 minute drive from where I live) to to go to this store to find a chess board for my husband's birthday. As always, they did not disappoint. I found a very beautiful maple and walnut board, 2" squares, for $85. That's a steal! They have all kinds of beautiful wood art from puzzles and kitchen utensils for a few dollars to art furniture for more than I can afford. Just walking around the store is an experience. They sell for a number of Northwest woodcrafters, and we are the beneficiaries. I have been to several woodcraft stores locally, and this is the best!
