Ferndale Couple Creates Clock Tower Landmark


The Clock Tower House on Main Street in Ferndale, WA has become an iconic structure for the city. Owners, Art and Margaret Rojsza transformed it from a typical two story home into it’s current fascinating incarnation. The original structure is still intact and is incorporated into the new building.

This creative couple uses a variety a materials from many places including the Bellingham RE Store. In the linked youtube video, Art and Margaret take viewers on a tour of their project and show off some of the RE Store items (wooden panels, lighting, etc.) they’ve used to create their eclectic home.

In the Bellingham Herald in 2011, Mr. Rojsza said of the house, “The project is both a reminder of home (Poland, originally) and symbol of American possibility.” The RE Store is glad to help supply the Rojszas’ possibility so that they can turn it into a reality.

The RE Store becomes a fashion back drop for Frock Shop’s Lookbook

When asked why she chose The RE Store as the backdrop for her Fall 2014 Lookbook, Suzy, owner of Frock Shop (6500 Phinney Ave N), replied, “My husband and I have shopped at the RE Store for years. It was so inspiring, such a Ballard landmark, I chose it for the background before I had even designed Fall. I wanted something quirky to suit our vintage inspired looks, so perfect!” Our thoughts exactly.

The successful photo shoot explored the store from top to bottom in order to showcase the chic and vibrant clothes of Frock Shop.  It is always satisfying when local businesses can help one another out and this collaboration worked out wonderfully, as you can see above.

The Fall line at Frock Shop will be available starting in August and for wholesale inquiries:

We wanted to give a big thanks Suzy, Frock Shop, and everyone involved with the fun photo shoot.  For Frock Shop location, hours and fashion go to:
