Coyote Woodshop opens Winslow showroom

Coyote Woodshop has built a business around giving new life to old trees. 

The Bainbridge Island shop turns reclaimed wood from the island into lumber and high-end furniture at its headquarters on Day Road.

This spring, customers will also be able to find Coyote Woodshop’s work downtown.

Coyote Woodshop has opened a pop-up showroom at 563 Madison Avenue N., just north of Wyatt Way. The store will be open 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Fridays and Saturdays in March and April.

The shop will also participate in First Friday Art Walks and be available to show furniture by appointment.

Great American Furniture owner retiring

A familiar Sixth Street furniture company will soon change hands.

Longtime Great American Furniture owner Sally Glivar plans to retire, after 24 years running the Bremerton business.  Glivar said she’ll miss working with staff and customers.

“I’m happy in a lot of ways but in a lot of ways I’m sad,” she said. “I love this business.”

Over the past two decades the furniture retailer adjusted sweeping industry changes brought on by online retail and weathered the recent economic recession. The company is still ticking, though Glivar admits its Charleston location “isn’t what it used to be.”

Glivar said a potential new owner is in line to take over the shop. In the meantime, she’s liquidating product.

“We have a lot of inventory to clear out,” Gilvar said.

Our colleagues at Kitsap Peninsula Business Journal profiled Great American Furniture and Glivar in August.
