Blackbird Mercantile is a lifestyle shop located in Downtown Olympia that promotes accessible luxury with a sense of humor. The shop focuses on offering a wide variety of both International and Local wine from "off the beaten path", with wine tastings every weekend @1pm! Blackbird's aesthetic incorporates an eclectic mix of home furnishings found, new, and consigned. Many items found in our store are made locally!
The Blackbird began when Sandy Hall and Chef Lela Cross (co-owners of Dillinger's Cocktails and Kitchen) saw The Red Door was closing after 9 years! They set out to keep the corner retail shop alive. By bringing in their aesthetic and great taste for wine, while capturing the essence of The Red Door's ability to bring amazing found furniture and objects to downtown Olympia, Blackbird remains a staple for finding the perfect gift or addition to your home.
Sandy Hall's passion and knowledge of wine drives Blackbird's collection to stay current with new world wine while not forgetting where it all began in the old world. She likes to incorporate story into her collection and strives to find quirky and interesting winemakers. Blackbird believes in keeping an affordable and delicious variety from any and all regions. There is no way to know if a wine is good unless you try it! We hold tasting's every weekend and they are always free so everyone and anyone can come enjoy some sips, snack on some bits (catered by Dillinger's Cocktails and Kitchen), learn a thing or two, and have fun while you do.
