A bit of serendipity has helped a Sequim-based lavender company keep its presence in downtown Sequim.

Gary and Marcella Stachurski of Cedarbrook Lavender & Herb Farm were looking for a downtown location for their gift shop when the building that housed their shop sold in September.

At the same time, the Stachurskis said, Marco and Christa Hermosillo of Olympic Lavender Company Farm & Gift Shop were preparing for new construction and expansion of their farm on Marine Drive near Dungeness Bay.

As Olympic Lavender left their spot at 120 W. Washington St., Cedarbrook was able to move right in.

“This is a blessing for both businesses and families,” Marcella Stachurski said.

The Stachurskis said they had about two weeks wondering what they would do after hearing the news they’d need to be out of their previous retail spot at 134 1/2 W. Washington St.

“We were beside ourselves,” Gary Stachurski said. “This is the best location in town, as far as I’m concerned.”

Marcella Stachurski said it took four months at the previous retail location to prep and open (December of 2014 to about April 2015), but this move started on Nov. 1 and will necessitate a three-week turnaround.

Cedarbrook’s gift shop hosts a “soft opening” today, Wednesday, Nov. 20, with a grand opening set for early 2020.

Store hours will be 10 a.m.-5 p.m., Monday-Saturday.

“This is not just a lavender store; most of the products we sell are made or bottled right here on the premises,” Gary Stachurski said, from massage oils, various soaps, sachets and food-related items such as peppers and cookies — all with an element of lavender, of course.

The Stachurskis, Sequim residents since 2005, are the second owner of the Cedarbrook Lavender and Herb Farm that was established in 1967.
