What is Heady Virtual Reality? Heady is a new kind of arcade… Virtual reality, or VR for short, is the most immersive way to play games, watch movies, or create digital art. When you’re in VR, you are visually inside the game. The images are stunning, and the audio is crisp. It’s easy to forget you’re in a virtual reality. This new and exciting technology allows you to do or be just about anybody or anything. You could travel to faraway places that take your breath away, or you could choose to embody a huge monster and destroy a few buildings. Or you and your friends could team up in VR and shoot your way through the zombie apocalypse! Whatever you want to do, it’s totally up to you. Heady Virtual Reality was created in Bellingham, Washington by Zach Brown in the summer of 2018. His intention with Heady VR is to have fun with the technology and, at the same time, to explore its many applications and possibilities in not only entertainment but art, engineering, health care, and more.

My interest in massage therapy blossomed after using self-massage and stretching to recover from a broken wrist. After studying Reiki in my home-state of Minnesota, I wanted to have more training in health-promoting modalities. Massage Therapy seemed like the natural step forward.

Our Vision Dedicated to the highest standards, we source and use the best ingredients and spend hours researching and experimenting with our process, always working towards perfection. We’re not business people who manufacture chocolate; we’re chocolatiers who have made a lifelong commitment to quality, and the business is something along for the ride. The result is not just a treat but a total chocolate experience. We deeply value our connection to the community and the opportunity to gratefully serve generations of loyal customers. At Chocolate Necessities, we are proud to say that here you can taste the love. Our History Chocolate Necessities is one of the original artisan chocolate companies in the United States, founded in 1986 by Kevin Buck and Mark Pantly. The search for chocolate began with a trip to Canada where Kevin experienced Callebaut, the leading Belgain chocolate maker. This brought up compelling questions like, “Why can’t we (in the US) have this amazing chocolate?” And, “How can I source only quality chocolate with no compromises?” Intrigue lead the way in learning how to ask the right questions. Many owners were not willing to share their information, but the right questions seemed vital to achieving the next level of industry insider truth. There are two locations to serve the Bellingham area. A professional chocolatier (Nicole), and over 10 other employees are on staff. Over the years, Kevin has dedicated hours to researching and tasting chocolate from around the world. The milk chocolate we use today has 43% cocoa solids and the semi-sweet chocolate has 54.5% cocoa solids. Equally important to Kevin was the amount of the cocoa butter to ensure that the chocolate melts properly as only great chocolate does. Kevin’s attention to the ingredients has raised the bar for our customers again and again. Our Team Everyone at Chocolate Necessities is passionate about making the best chocolates possible. It is our utmost pleasure to share our love of chocolate with you! We have worked hard to create a respectful, trusting, positive environment that helps us produce superb products year after year. Serving western Washington, we welcome you to stop by both locations to see the operation first hand and to taste and learn more about the chocolate we have come to respect. We look forward to meeting you!
Play contributes to a child’s physical, cognitive, social and emotional development, and if the play is open ended, imaginative, and creative it has the greatest impact on the child’s growth. This belief guides our choices in the toys we carry, which is why you will find simple, basic toys that actually require the child to be fully engaged to enjoy them. Many of our toys are made of natural materials, especially those for young children. This is for health and safety concerns as well as environmental and aesthetic values. Wooden blocks just feel better than their plastic counterparts! We strongly believe that play is important for all ages. George Bernard Shaw said “We don’t stop playing because we grow old; we grow old because we stop playing.” This is why we offer so many items for older kids and adults. It is so great to see an elderly customer put on one of our adult sized goofy hats and let us take a photo, or watch tweens and teens playing dress up in the store or playing games at our game demo tables. Often parents are very surprised to see that their 14 year old is not too old for toys! We also carry puzzles, games and brainteasers that are great for grandmas and grandpas that want to exercise their brains and keep them sharp, but be warned that the grandchild may win! By providing a cheerful and welcoming space with interactive displays, we encourage our customers to linger and try out the toys and perhaps run into their neighbors. Our workshops, kids club activities, and special events add to this sense of community, and new friendships have blossomed as a result of them! We are committed to our greater community and contribute to over 60 non profit groups each year that benefit children, families, and the elderly. We have also enjoyed visiting local school classrooms and playing games with kids to promote our belief of the importance of play.
Our digital cards will be available soon, but come on by the store and buy a plastic one for now! Bailey’s was founded in 2000 as the first self-serve dog wash in Bellingham. It was a novel concept that the owner, Ron Miller, had seen in Alaska and thought might be a hit in Bellingham. He named the shop after his beloved rat-terrier, Bailey. Ron decided to retire in 2015 and enjoys riding his motorcycle and taking his RV on spur of the moment trips around the states. When Ron retired, it was taken over by Bellingham-local Brent Ahrens who had been in the pet industry since 2009. In the past 3 years, Bailey’s has received new custom built wash bays, 2 full time groomers, and a growing retail selection. The future of Bailey’s is a goal to be a neighborhood pet supply for the Birchwood, Columbia, and Cornwall neighborhoods, in addition to customers from all over the county who are looking for great service and quality products. This will be shown in a name change from “Bailey’s Bath House” to “Bailey’s Neighborhood Pet” and will be seen inside with a wide variety of high quality offerings for discerning pet parents. If it’s been a while since you have been in – come see whats new!
