North Star leaves downtown Langley

North Star Trading Company will leave Langley.

“We’re moving out of Langley, but not off the island,” said Liz VanDyke, owner of the store that sells locally manufactured sheepskin products and other gifts. “We would like to try and sell the ‘comfort store’ and we have it for sale at a great price.”

The company was one of the few Langley companies that manufactured in town.

“Our plans are to concentrate on our Web site and our spot at the Pike Place Market,” VanDyke said.

Even though it is leaving Langley, the company is introducing a number of new products that can be viewed at its Web site at

“If we sell the store, our slippers will probably still be available there. If not, we’ll make sure we let everyone know how to get hold of us,” VanDyke said.

“Langley has been fun, but we’re looking ahead at some new ventures and we’re ready to move on,” she said.
