Blackwater Apothecary: New business opens their doors in Downtown SBY

SALISBURY, Md.- A new shop opened in Downtown Salisbury Thursday and they are ready to make their mark in the city.

The new retail shop, Blackwater Apothecary, is located inside the City Center.

Owner, Nicole Bishop, is Eastern Shore born and raised.

She says she started working on this business about five years ago, making just candles and incense.

From there, it stemmed into what it is today.

Inside, the shop you can find herbs, tea, candles, incense, handmade pottery,  and other medical related supplies.

She said she is excited about this new adventure and hopes bring the community together.

“I definitely hope to grow into something bigger to offer more things to people and what they are looking for,” Bishop, said. “I just hope that people who didn’t feel like they had a sense of community can come in here and feel at home.”

Bishop said by selling her handmade items at Third Friday events in Salisbury it helped her to open a business.

As of right now, they are open Thursday through Sunday from 1 to 5 p.m.
