Hemp Emporium up for sale

Located at 215 E. Holly St., in the heart of downtown, Hemp Emporium has purveyed fine, locally made hemp products to the city of Bellingham since 1994. But after 11 years of business, owner Pattie Nelson-Bloch is putting the store up for sale.

Citing the ever-present government and big-business opposition to hemp as well as a plateau in sales since the move to the store’s new location on Holly Street, Nelson-Bloch has decided to move on.

“It would be great to find a group of artists or environmentalists who want to take the vision and keep it going,” she said. “It will also be nice to finally get off the retail floor.”

The Hemp Emporium is the last remaining hemp store in Bellingham and is one of few remaining in Washington state, Nelson-Bloch said.

Nelson-Bloch and her husband Stacy Bloch started the Scientific Nature Hemp Emporium in 1994 in a building on Bay Street. In 1998, they moved to a larger location on Railroad Avenue and finally to the Emporium’s current location on Holly Street in 2003.

She also coordinated the vending aspects of Hempfest over the past five years and planned part of Bumbershoot, the Seattle festival of music and arts, this past summer. Scientific Nature sold hemp products as a backup to their science and nature-type wares. But when
