    Henderson Books: Need a Book for a Rainy Day?

    Henderson Books

    For a small town book store, this is fairly impressive. They have a reasonable selection of used and slightly used books, and the stacks and stacks go way back into the depths of the store. Prices are reasonable. The science fiction section is quite nice and is most likely from surplus Western Washington University students reading.

    Sojourn: Mall Hater?

    by artgrad Updated Apr 4, 2011

    Winner of Best Women's Clothing Shop 2004, Sojourn is a sweet litlle shop that offers unique clothes from labels that fit in a style that I would compare to Anthropologie. They also have a great selection of postcards (sorry not touristy Bellingham postcards, just artsy funny ones).

    What to buy: Their inventory is always changing, so there are always new treasures to discover.

    What to pay: This is certainly not discount shopping, but it's not overly expensive. You'd be getting a great deal for unique clothing that you will feel special wearing. And they do have sale racks.

    Bellis Fair: Bellingham's famous shopping mall

    by Carmanah Written Apr 6, 2008

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bellis Fair is a shopping mall located off of 1-5 about a 15 minute drive south of the border. It's actually a mall with a large Canadian customer base, as its close proximity to Canada means that many Canadians will drive down and shop there when exchange rates are favourable as merchandise is often cheaper and it will

    Of course, when exchange rates are not, Bellis Fair can suffer.

    Bellis Fair is a decent size. It's all on one level connecting to various department stores such as JC Penney, Macy's, Kohl's, Target, Sears, and even the Japanese import "everything for $2" Daiso. There are also the typical retail shops such as The Gap, Abercrombie & Fitch, and Hot Topic.

    What to pay: As much or as little as you wish.

    Village Books: Fabulous Book Browsing

    by RavPadfoot Written Dec 21, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Village Books as seen from the Village Green

    Village Books can be found in the heart of Old Fairhaven and is worth a look. Three stories of new and used books, fabulous staff recommendations and knowledgeable employees make Village Books the special place that it is. Choose a book and enjoy a delicious cup of joe upstairs in the cafe, which overlooks the village green and Bellingham Bay. The view itself is worth a look.

    What to buy: Books! More books! Support a local business that gives so much back to the community. Village Books has a great atmosphere. Go there! Do not pass go!

    What to pay: Warning... bookstores can be dangerous to your wallet! There are used books downstairs and the upper floors sell new books. Buy some books, it's inevitable.

    Deals Only: We Only Have Deals!

    by artgrad Written Jan 30, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Bellingham is the land of discount stores. It's not as gross as it sounds, you can actually find a lot of great ethnic, vegetarian and organic items for cheap. Deals Only is the queen of discount here, carrying loads of dry goods and canned/jarred items as well as home decor and clothing. Some people would probably like to keep the store a secret, but I think everyone deserves a good deal.

    What to buy: Look for great prices on cereal, energy bars, sauces and soups. My favorites are boxed organic meals like risotto, pasta, pilaf etc.

    What to pay: You can get a month's worth of dry goods for around $20 or even less.
