Swain's is my husband's must go-to-store to buy his propane and lighter before backpacking at Hurricane Ridge or Sol Duc. There is a wonderfully enticing supply of camping accessories at great prices. I bought two metal mugs (20 oz) and a set of eating utensils. They had heavy duty plastic and the light metal ones on the display rack, and a cheaper but heavier set on the aisle.

If you want to buy some Seattle's Best Chocolates, they have the assorted bags and bars. Excellent prices! I paid $36 for a slightly bigger bag of the chocolates in the airport gift shop and went to another store in Sequim and saw the same size bag of chocolates that Swain's sold for $25. I think Swain's had it for $16.

There are clothes, flip, flops, and stuff for a variety of sports, garden stuff, and frozen fish.

Great variety of outdoor supplies. This is the place to find what you need locally. Prices are about 30-40% more than you would spend closer to I 5. But for port angeles its worth it.

My wife thought this was going to be an old time general store with penny candy and kick knacks. It is a functional store with practical items. I was impressed with the quality of the items they stocked and the selection.

Wow! This store has everything I can think of and things I never even thought of! I was like a kid in a candy store. The prices were reasonable too!

If you find yourself out this way, stop in and take a look. I’m sure you will find many of the items you need and many you didn’t know you needed! Don’t forget to look upstairs!

Swains is a general store. They generally carry whatever you need from hardware to camping gear and clothing. Most of the staff have worked there for years and are helpful and very knowledgeable about both their inventory and the Olympic Peninsula. They also issue fish and wildlife licenses for hunting and fishing.

I came in last week to see if I could find a wall paper repair seam roller. I'd already been to a paint store in Sequim and Home Depot with no luck. Nobody has wallpaper anymore, so I didn't have high hopes. The staff was SO HELPFUL and they even had them! Every time I come into Swains, I find wonderful stuff that I need or want and can't find anywhere else! Where else can you find housewares, teas, bows and arrows, shoes, painting supplies, fiestaware etc in one store?! And the staff is kind and helpful, knowlegable and fun.

This place does have everything. Hardware, clothes, camping gear, hunting and fishing gear, shoes, housewares, etc. super friendly and helpful staff. Not cheap, but if you need it, you will pay for it. Took the puppy inside and she was welcomed. We stop in every time we are in the area.
