Our Story

Lisa and Lydia

Mountain Joy is a mother-daughter company that is located in downtown Roslyn, Washington. The boutique was founded in 2020 with the vision of bringing unique products that were handpicked to ensure the best quality. Open year-round, the boutique features the latest fashion trends, jewelry, accessories, home décor, bath and body products, kitchen accessories, hostess gifts, local vendors, seasonal products, and so much more.

Lisa’s grandparents came from Croatia in the early 1900s to take part in the coal boom. Both her parents were born and raised in the Roslyn community and still preside here. As Lisa grew up, she would regularly visit the area and would go on camping trips to Salmon la Sac. As years went on, her parents built a cabin in the area, later marrying a local, and decided to call Roslyn her home where they would raise their children.

Lydia was born and raised in the Upper Kittitas community. She graduated from Cle Elum-Roslyn High School with finding many ways to participate in the community and sports. Lydia later attended Washington State University in Pullman to obtain a Bachelor of Business Administration and a Master’s degree in Businesses Administration with a concentration in Finance.

Mountain Joy is a long-term dream Lisa and Lydia have discussed and are overjoyed to see it become a reality. Our family’s long history in the community has guided us to want to continue our involvement. We thank you for all your continuous support.

About Roslyn
The small town located in the heart of the Cascade mountains is about 80 miles from Seattle, Washington. The town was founded in 1886 due to its strong presence of coal composites. People from Ireland, Croatia, Italy, England, Scotland, Wales, Poland, Slovakia, Slovenia, and Germany all came to work in the rapidly growing coal industry located in Roslyn. Today over 280 million tons of coal remain below the surface. Roslyn later became known as a filming location for The Runner Stumbles, Northern Exposure, and The Man in the High Castle. More information about Roslyn can be found at the Roslyn Historical Museum (roslynmuseum.com).
