It’s been a bang up week for newness in Coupeville. 

The second new shop to open in Coupeville is a huge winner for our historic Waterfront.

Marbley opened on Saturday, August 10th, and is located at 7 Front Street in the circa 1936 Howell’s building.

Owners Joan and Ed, visited Coupeville in 2017 and fell in love with #7 Front Street. With the intention to redirect their energy, after 20 years in the restaurant and hospitality industries, and raise their son in a smaller community Ed and Joan have embraced Coupeville in excited and generous ways.

Since 2017 they sold their restaurant in So. California, bought a house within walking distance of #7, and renovated the old Howell building for their shop Marbley!

Marbley blends beautifully curated personal and gift items with silk scarfs made through the ancient art form of Ebru* (read description of this art form below). BONUS at Marbley, YOU can make your own scarf!

#7 Front Street. 360-


*Ebru is a method of aqueous surface design, which can produce patterns similar to smooth marble, other kinds of stone or patterns of your choosing. The patterns are the result of non-toxic colored paints floated on plain water and then carefully transferred to a silk scarf. Through several centuries, people have applied marbled materials to a variety of surfaces. It is often employed as a writing surface for calligraphy, and especially book covers and endpapers in bookbinding and stationery. Part of its appeal is that each print is a unique monotype. THIS is truly something special for Coupeville.

NOTE: We have a couple of other new businesses ventures in Coupeville and are putting together images and copy for the blog.
