Our Story

A Touch of Dutch was established in 1996 in Coupeville, WA.  Janine & Bas (Bastian) Verhulst became the 3rd owners of this unique business in June 2016.

Janine (American) and Bas (Dutch) met in 2004 while backpacking in Australia. Many years on, three countries and about ten cities/towns and countless moves in between, we arrived and settled on Whidbey Island, WA (USA). To make a long story short, we purchased A Touch of Dutch and life has never been the same!
