Our Story

We began as friends creating handcrafts and selling them at holiday shows in Whatcom County .  In 1987 while looking for a place to sell our handcrafted treasures and collectibles in the Spring we had a great idea!  “Let’s put on our own Spring Show and invite our favorite crafters and antique dealers to join us.”

Whatcom County Crafters was created.  (WCC Promotions Inc.)  We combined our skills and talents of handcrafting, antiquing, promoting and selling and began our new venture as Craft and Antique Show Promoters.

In 1989 we added a Fall Show to our schedule. Twenty 29 years later we have 100+ vendors, three day shows twice a year, with an approximate attendance of 6,000 a show!

We are a family business and our husbands, children, moms and dads have played a very important part in our success.  You will see them parking cars, selling tickets, stamping customer’s hands and other tasks as needed.  We appreciate all of their hard work, and the shows would not run smoothly without them.

Every year throughout Washington State we attend craft and antique shows searching for unique crafters and antique dealers with quality products, originality, good value, and a flair for booth display.  We strive to provide the highest quality of hand-made treasures and a wide variety of antiques and collectibles for the Lynden Craft and Antique Show.

Our main goal for the show is to delight and inspire each person as they walk in the front door.  We celebrate with the community the arrival of the Spring and Fall Shows!  Thank you to the local businesses and shoppers for all of the support we have received throughout the years.  We believe working together is beneficial for all of us.

We hope you will enjoy this Craft & Antique Extravaganza as much as we do!
