It’s a big week for Lynden-based Woods Coffee: a new logo and the Grand Opening of their new roastery this Saturday.

After 14 years in business, the Woods Coffee has updated their logo and branding materials. The new logo (pictured below) is reflects the company’s Northwest roots and is designed to be cleaner and more simple than the historical brand mark. “The script font is a reminder to never take ourselves too seriously — to live out one of our core values which is to have fun,” explained Wes Herman, who founded the company along with his family in 2002.

The new branding will roll out across the stores over time, with the drink cups being one of the first elements to sport the new logo in their three Lynden coffee shops. The new cups each have a quote from John Muir, who is commonly referred to as the father of the National Park system, which celebrates 100 years this year.

Dessert Lovers Delight! Now Open: Just Desserts by Lynden Dutch Bakery

In 1907, just 16 short years after Lynden’s official incorporation, a bakery opened in Lynden to serve the small yet growing community. 109 years later, that bakery still serves this community as the Lynden Dutch Bakery. And this year, on Lynden’s 125th anniversary date, the Lynden Dutch Bakery opened their new Just Desserts shop across town at Fairway Center.

Lyndenites Chad and Julee Simmons have owned the Lynden Dutch Bakery for just about a year and a half, but spent a few years involved behind the scenes prior to taking ownership. “We are fortunate to become involved in an institution far bigger than ourselves — we want to be good stewards of it and find the best way forward,” Chad shared.

Just Desserts is a new twist on the historically popular offerings of the long-time Lynden bakery. Sweet favorites such as their handcrafted donuts, dessert bars and poffertjes muffins are plentiful at the new shop, as well as all-day hot breakfast offerings, sandwiches and an espresso bar.

Bellingham Baby Co. — now in Lynden, too!

So many good things have been happening in Lynden lately, even beyond all the normal awesomeness that is Lynden. One new arrival to town is the Bellingham Baby Co., which opened their second retail location at the Waples Mercantile Building. The entrance to the new shop is in the interior of the building, through the Lobby of the Inn at Lynden; just past Overflow Taps and behind Drizzle and Village Books.

Bellingham Baby Co. is owned and operated by Lyndenites Shelly and Jeremy Allen. The new Lynden location which opened in early January is their second brick and mortar shop, in addition to their Barkley Village store and online presence.

The shop features a great selection of local Lynden-themed prints, including gear for the little Lynden Lion or Lync in your family!

Lynden Bolt: specialty fasteners & more coming soon to downtown Lynden

Many have wondered what the ‘Lynden Bolt – Coming Soon’ signs at 404 Front Street mean exactly.

Some speculated that it could be a sewing shop selling bolts of fabric, while the more creative thinker might have imagined a gun parts store selling rifle bolts. Neither would be correct, as Lynden Bolt is the in-progress retail establishment of Mobile Hardware, Inc. which has sold wholesale fasteners locally for nearly 30 years.

Brothers Jesse and Tim Clark (pictured above) were busy setting up in the store when we dropped by Monday evening. With a friendly and upbeat attitude they explained their specialization in fasteners that other shops in the region don’t carry.

Lynden in Lights 2015: don’t miss these neighborhoods and homes!

Brightly-lit home on S. 17th Street in Lynden

Each year as we near Christmas, families around the country celebrate by decorating their homes in bright, cherry Christmas lights. In Lynden, we seem to be blessed with an extra dose of that Christmas cheer — as so many families decorate their homes in anticipation of Christmas. With strong Christian roots in our community, this time of year is for many a very joyful anticipation of the celebration of the birth of Jesus Christ more than two thousand years ago. For others, the Christmas spirit has flowed over into their lives and they celebrate each year as a means of gathering family, sharing in generosity and letting kids use their imagination.

Either way, an evening drive through Lynden this time of year is a must-do for families and adults too! It really is ‘Lynden in Lights’! There are a few great spots we’ll recommend — but so much is spread out around town that it’s fun to explore on your own. Maybe even try to ‘get lost’ a bit in the winding neighborhoods of Homestead area.

After 25 years of serving the local community with their annual Fall Harvest Festival, today marks the last day of the final year of Stoney Ridge Farm’s October festivities. For many Lynden-area families, Stoney Ridge Farm’s fall activities have been an annual tradition synonymous with autumn and the harvest season.

In mid-September of this year, Stoney Ridge announced via their Facebook page that this would be their last season opening their farm and home for the October harvest season.
