For this month’s local spotlight, we’ve decided to feature the beautiful Bainbridge Island Museum of Art (BIMA). Fortunately for us locals, BIMA is one of the first buildings to greet visitors from around the world as they step off the ferry onto our beautiful island.
BIMA’s mission is to inspire curiosity, wonder and understanding by connecting people with the contemporary art and craft of the Puget Sound region — and that’s exactly what they do.
Life seems to be moving faster these days. Because of this sense of urgency to always be in a hurry, sometimes we miss out on connecting with those around us and our communities. For this reason, we’ve decided to highlight the Eagle Harbor Book Co. for our Local Spotlight. They are one of the many fabulous Bainbridge businesses that make our island unique.
We are officially into the spring season. Soon the kiddos will be breaking out their rain gear and other clothes that have been in the closet for some time, and chances are there have been some growth spurts. In the spirit of new springtime swag—and the eco-friendly focus that Earth Day gives us each April—we are highlighting one of our favorite local shops for new and used children’s clothing: Lollipops Children’s Boutique! A Bainbridge Island staple for fifteen years, Lollipops is an upscale boutique that offers children’s clothes and other locally made goods.
