Our Story

“Have nothing in your house that you do not know to be useful, or believe to be beautiful.”

William Morris


Since 1977, Pebble has been located at 245 Spring Street in Friday Harbor, Washington. The building was built in 1890 and has many stories of its own to share. Raised on San Juan Island, we always knew in our hearts we’d return to raise our family here. As a family owned business, we are truly excited about the items we carry. In fact, what is in the shop is also in our own home.  We believe our employees are an extension of our family. Our daughters know Pebble as their second home and it is within this creative space they learn the value of relationships in our everyday world. 

We believe in supporting and engaging our community by promoting creative and regional brands that illustrate the northwest lifestyle. We practice and encourage sustainable style and craftsmanship by offering a variety of products for any facet of life. From stationery to clothing, from jewelry to books, Pebble has hand-selected goods to brighten your day. We feature a collection of candles, rugs, and other decorative elements for either the perfect gift or design touch you’ve been searching for. We value small businesses and focus on unique pieces you won’t find anywhere else. We believe our most important mission is to make connections with locals, tourists, and everyone in between. 

Without our valued customers, we wouldn’t be able to share what we love. Whether online or at our island shop, we encourage you to say hello. We hope to see and hear from you soon.

With Love,

The Leightons
