Hello! I'm so glad you're here!

Welcome to the online shop for my brick and mortar store, FERN, on beautiful San Juan Island in the Salish Sea. The place to find all things pretty, calming, colorful, and fun.

In downtown Friday Harbor

Hello - welcome to fern!

Take a look inside.

A tiny space with a big impact. Offering art and jewelry by Alisha Merrick, work by a handful of local makers, and a curated selection of giftwares made primarily in USA. Now you can shop online if you can't make the trip by ferry!

This little shop is a long time dream for me.

Opening a retail store in 2020 has certainly been an adventure! I am happily living out my dream, selling pretty things and meeting lovely people from near and far! What a gift to have this opportunity!

Alisha Merrick - Artist/Owner

I make all of the jewelry, enamelware, paintings, and drawings in the shop. You'll find me behind the counter most days but when I'm not here I'm creating in my home studio or walking in the woods gaining inspiration for new pieces!

At FERN we believe in nature, in quality over quantity, and that beauty is a necessity. Support local. Support hand made. Small businesses and sustainable materials are our future.

Happy customers say...

A wonderful shop just off the main road in Friday Harbor. I love Alisha's metal items. Purchased a pair of earrings as well as had a custom light switch cover made. Everything is beautiful. Will definitely shop there again on our next visit!

I was so excited to hear of the opening of FERN in downtown Friday Harbor! Alisha's quaint shop is filled with so many beautifully curated goodies as well as her own gorgeous artwork and jewelry. I recently purchased several down filled, velvet pillows from FERN and they gave my entire cabin an upgrade!

I just visited the island and happened upon this super adorable, tiny shop. So glad I found it. I got a pair of earrings for myself and some gifts to take back to California as well. The owner is delightful and apparently she is the artist who makes most of the work there! I would recommend this shop for local handmade gifts to take home.

This is such a sweet spot--full of lovely art, jewelry, cards, and goodies!
