A modern mercantile on Vashon Island

New, independent and local. Good Merchandise is the place to go on Vashon Island for handcrafted, unique and amazing gifts and practical items! We host a little bit of everything, and we're always looking for more.

It's never too early to start shopping for the holidays, and in our opinion, it's never too late. We will be open throughout the holiday season with extended hours during December. Put your wish list together, give it to your loved one and tell them to give us a call! We are specializing in holiday shopping for those who are too busy and are interested in supporting the LOCAL ARTISAN!
