  • Great store. Wide variety of stuff - from old fashioned candy and local food products to hats. Little museum upstairs too
  • Old fashioned mercantile! Cool stuff, wide assortment, bulk candy, very authentic.
  • Fun store to visit for unique items
  • You know I think the best part about Ferndale is this little Mercantile. You wouldn't know it, but if you hop into the back of the shop you will find one of the best gem and bead places around. Its not suppose to be a store really back there but Marlin and Sandra sure love collecting pearls and gems galore. Sandra will even take the time to show you a quick few tips on how to make jewelry. If you ever get a chance to stop by Ferndale, stop by this wonderful treasure trove.
