Find Fresh Fashion Accessories for Spring in Bellingham

The calendar might say that spring is still a couple of weeks off, but Mother Nature disagrees. We've been experiencing the best spring-like winter weather in the Pacific Northwest most of us can remember. So it's time to put away our warmest winter wear and break out our lighter-weight clothes, always keeping plenty of wraps, cardigans and scarves handy for layering on during the unpredictable sunny-cloudy-cool-warm-rainy-clear springtime. If you're like me, the ol' closet has a few empty spots, so a shopping trip is in order. And even if you've got your basics covered, it's always nice to freshen your look with a splash of something new—whether it's a piece of trendy jewelry, a jaunty hat or scarf, or a new bag. I've scouted out some of the latest trend pieces for you; now all you have to do is scoop them up at Sojourn or Betty Lou's Downtown Emporium before they're gone!

        We acknowledge that Whatcom County is located on the unceded territory of the Coast Salish Peoples. They cared for the lands that included what we’d call the Puget Sound region, Vancouver Island and British Columbia since time immemorial. This gives us the great obligation and opportunity to learn how to care for our surrounding areas and all the natural and human resources we require to live. We express our deepest respect and gratitude for our indigenous neighbors, the Lummi Nation and Nooksack Tribe, for their enduring care and protection of our shared lands and waterways.
