So what IS The Bureau of Historical Investigation? It's the home of our Good Time Tours (maybe you've heard of The Good Time Girls before?), as well as a gift and souvenir shop... But it's also more than just that. Let's see what a visitor had to say about our space at 217 West Holly: 

"Walking into the Bureau is like stepping into a Bellingham Wunderkammer, a Living Cabinet of Historical Curiosities, filled with an elegant selection of art, jewelry, soaps, fragrances, books, prints, furniture, objects d'art and local curiosa.

There is a lovely curated quality to everything - you sense each and every item was chosen with care and consideration to showcase only the most fascinating and interesting aspects of Bellingham. And everything is reasonably priced.

...If the city of Bellingham is seen as the living museum through which The Good Time Girls guide us, The Bureau of Historical Investigation is the gift shop for the city."
