In the run up to the December holidays, and in light of my commitment to shop locally, I am starting The Shops, a new series featuring small, locally-owned shops. There are so many of these wonderful stores, true small businesses, where each of us live, and if we don’t support them, we will lose them.
I am pleased to introduce you to the first in my series: With Gratitude. Pam and Courtney, who run this great little shop are always filled with smiles and good cheer whenever I pop in to see them, usually when I am waiting for my lunch at the sandwich shop in the same small row of shops where their store is located. With Gratitude is always filled with things I’d love to have (hint to family!), and their merchandising is always such fun.They take their seasonal decorating very seriously here and their stock reflects the change of seasons, as well.With Gratitude recently got in some items that hold a special place in the heart of Baltimoreans – a range of Mr. Boh cufflinks, belts, and dog leashes and collars. I made Chris, Mr. Boh’s salesman, put on the belt to show it off.
