I am a huge supporter of small businesses, especially small shops, as many of my friends own one. I probably do 80% of my shopping at non-chain stores. I like that my money stays in the community and provides support locally. I thought I’d do a run through of some of my favourite small businesses, in and around Baltimore.
With Gratitude – A gift shop with a varied selection of gifts, jewelry and art, mostly made by small local artisans.
Halcyon House Antiques – Elegant home accessories, jewelry and interior decorating services. I want every.single.thing.there.
The House Downtown – Great home furnishings, accessories and home design.
Housewerks – Architectural Antiques and Salvage
The Ivy Bookshop – An independent bookstore with a wide range of titles and a friendly, helpful staff.
Trohv – Quirky and original home goods.
Tone-on-Tone – Elegant Swedish Antiques in Bethesda
I hope that you will take advantage of the goods and services at your local small businesses. They want your business!
