It's been quite an interesting few years here at Bezel & Kiln. After opening, major retailers closed in our building during the final phases of a major renovation to Pacific Place. It was a difficult time, but we held out hope that things would turn around.
Then, as we all know too well, March 2020 turned the world upside down. After that, we kept trying and doing our best to stay afloat as foot traffic worsened. We opened our sister store, The Handmade Showroom's new space on the 3rd floor in August of 2020 but still felt positive about the possibilities.
We survived marches, riots, declining tenancy, and thought we could weather the changing climate of commerce, but even so, we find ourselves in a position where we can no longer afford to keep waiting for things to get better.
We have decided to close our beloved and beautiful storefront and move the Bezel & Kiln Collection into The Handmade Showroom for a "store in store" experience that will allow us to continue the Bezel & Kiln brand and website, while reconnecting with our Handmade roots. We hope you will join us in our journey toward new horizons and maybe, someday, a new storefront when the time is right.
Thank you so much for your continued support. We look forward to keeping in touch with you in our new location on the 3rd floor in 2024!
With gratitude, Marlo Miyashiro Co-owner and Managing Director The Handmade Showroom and Bezel & Kiln at Pacific Place downtown Seattle
