Thanks to everyone who came out for the Friday edition of the Tour de Baltimore. We simply could not have had a more beautiful day – sunny and 70s – a polar opposite of the October tour!
We started the morning bright and early with coffee and donuts from the Fractured Prune (a local donut shop) at DeBois Textiles, checking out their incredible selection of fabrics. They’ve just gotten in a new shipment, and I saw one silk from Schumacher that almost made me cry, it was so gorgeous! Here are some of the new textiles.Housewerks to see what was new there. They are taking apart some old Bethlehem Steel offices in Pennsylvania so have a lot of steel office furniture. This stuff is great to take to an auto paint shop and customize the paint colour. They also just took apart a Catholic school in PA, and if this doesn’t embody a school, I don’t know what does… When we arrived at Gore-Dean, we were greeted with the POP of a champagne cork and freshly baked cookies! What a perfect way to shop! As always, there were so many fabulous things to look at there. Thanks to Deb and Spider for their warmth and generosity!
I am looking forward to Saturday’s Tour de Baltimore and meeting lots of new friends!
