Made in Kitsap: Locally Made Home Goods

Transform your space from house to home by shopping for these locally-made products. Kitsap has got you covered for all your household needs, from larger items like custom furniture and wallpaper to small touches that enhance a room. Skip the big-box stores and support these fantastic small businesses next time you want to improve your space or need the perfect host gift.

Wallcoverings and Textiles

Designed in Poulsbo, Abnormals Anonymous offers stunning prints. The creators describe their prints as “drawn from nature’s oddities and designed to spark curiosity, infused with coastal, floral, and wildlife motifs.” Abnormals Anonymous has a variety of wallpapers, grasscloths, and textiles designed locally and manufactured in the United States. You can see their work in Poulsbo’s new Hotel Scandi.

Furniture Made in Kitsap

Have you been dreaming of a specific piece of furniture that you can’t find anywhere else? Experts in both traditional woodworking and modern Architectural Millwork, Phenom Woodworks specializes in custom residential and commercial work that includes non-traditional materials – making every project truly one of a kind. Based in Poulsbo, Phenom Woodworks combines Swiss precision with globally inspired design. The team thrives on challenging projects and loves finding creative solutions to bring your visions to life. 

For raw-edge tables or handcrafted rocking chairs, check out Laeradr Millworks, also in Poulsbo. Additionally, they have a wide selection of hand-turned bowls and wall hangings. They’ve even designed unique wall-mounted arcade systems for high-end game rooms.

For the Kitchen and Bathroom

For these frequently-used rooms, it is all about the details. Kitsap does not disappoint when it comes to locally-produced products. F.R.O.G. Soap in Bremerton is known for its beautiful bar soaps and body products. Additionally, they have laundry and dish soaps, locally-made pottery, and other home goods. Point Unbroken, which you can find on Bainbridge Island, has a full line of hypo-allergenic soaps, lotions, salves, candles, and cleaning products. Poulsbo’s Away With Words Bookshop offers house-made lotions, sugar scrubs, and Cupcake Candle Company candles crafted in Sequim. Away With Words also features Frantic Art’s handmade ceramics, which are made in Kitsap but were only available at Pike Place Market until this year.

For pottery made in Kitsap, check out Fern Street Pottery. You can find it at many shops across Kitsap County, including Nordiska in Poulsbo, Danger on Bainbridge Island, and the Indianola Country Store. Fern Street is best known for mugs, barware, and serving items. 

To check out various local home goods, visit the Poulsbo Farmers Market. We’re proud sponsors of the Poulsbo Farmers Market, and you’ll find wonderful vendors such as The Rustic Cedar Co., which creates laser-engraved cutting boards, and Secret Garden Lavender from Seabeck for all things lavender. Another local favorite at the market is Sea Wind & Fog, which has Pacific Northwest-inspired soy wax candles and diffusers.

If you want to fill your pantry with local goods, Spiva Spices in Silverdale specializes in spice blends and rubs. Also, Tea & Spice Exchange in Poulsbo carries various spices, salts, flavored sugars, and many teas. Kingston’s CB’s Nuts has great nut butters and roasted nuts.
