About Me

I was born in Seattle, and love everything about our beautiful state…even the rain!

After 16 years working on the Eastside as an Owner’s Representative for new construction, interior design, and landscape design projects, I was ready for a new chapter and a new location.

I spent 2 years exploring Western Washington and fell in love with Olympia.

I bought my home here in 2010 and then bought the cutest little house on Mud Bay in 2015 to build a business.

Bay Mercantile is a coastal kitchen shop. I sell kitchen items that are beautiful and functional. There are so many talented artists in this area! I sell many hand-crafted local items.

I also sell wine, local craft beer and fresh oysters (my little shop was an oyster farm for 40 years)!
