Winslow Way merchants are trying to be creative

The tearing up of Winslow Way isn’t the only action occurring these days on the island’s main street. The April opening of Fork & Spoon precedes several other downtown changes, with several new leases signed recently.

The tearing up of Winslow Way isn’t the only action occurring these days on the island’s main street.

The April opening of Fork & Spoon precedes several other downtown changes, with several new leases signed recently.

“What I like about what’s happening on our main street is that people are being creative,” said Andrea Mackin, director of operations and marketing for the Bainbridge Island Chamber of Commerce. “They are thinking strategically about the kinds of businesses we have and what new ones will fit in. These are all businesses that will bring additional foot traffic to Winslow. “ They include:

• A new fine paper and stationary shop, Paperoost, which is owned by Netti Domenichelli, owner of the former Grace & Co. Paperie. It will be located next to Mora Ice Cream off Madrone Lane.

• A new shop called Dan.ger, which is a combination of Dana’s and Ginger, will move into the space formerly occupied by Embellish; it will offer jewelry and art from Ginger (Sara Baetz, Laurie Rosenberg, Kelly Asadorian and Dave Myers) and home furnishings and gifts from Dana (Terri Bryant and Mary Terry).

• Salt and Sea, owned by Carrie Schei and offering home furnishings, will move into the old Kennedy & Kate space on Winslow Way later this month.

• An eatery named Bee’s Luncheonette, owned and operated by Garin and Charisse Pangburn, will open soon in the Winslow Mall space in a space located next to Possum’s Boutique.
