Chris Foss, Owner
The mission of the Greenhouse is to provide a spirited collection for the home by carefully selecting a high quality, unique inventory. Originally a plant store, The Greenhouse literally sprouted in downtown Bellingham, WA in 1972. Chris Foss and Foster Rose opened the store with borrowed capital and a passion for tropical plants. From the beginning, Greenhouse combined a strong sense of community with an eagerness to meet the changing needs of a growing city. This led to the introduction of house-wares and home furnishings in the mid 1970’s. Over the decades, the store has remained true to its mission. Today, that collection has evolved and grown to please locals and tourists alike, while continuing to be an avid participant in the local economy and community.
