It’s that time of year again when we search for gifts for family and friends (and teachers and secretaries and the postman and so on). This year our selections focus on items locally made. Not only will you find something for everyone, but you’ll be supporting local artisans as well!
It’s the last day of the month and time for Fishbowl Faves, our roundup of top stories of April brought to you by the Mt. Washington Tavern.
Time for a change? As the school calendar winds down, many families begin to reflect on how the year unfolded and determine whether they want to make a change for the upcoming academic year—or possibly further down the road. If you are contemplating a new school for your child in pre-kindergarten through eighth grade, consider attending one of St. James Academy Spring Visiting Days.
Sunnyfields Cabinetry has been in the home renovation business for years, offering fine cabinetry solutions in a variety of styles to homes in the Baltimore region. The Mt. Washington-based company has launched a new seminar series for homeowners in the early development stages of home renovations, to offer them unique access to the process of planning and executing large-scale projects. Kitchen renovations can quickly become daunting when you can’t understand the process, but the possibilities are endless with an open and communicative team. Feeling confident you understand the process is key to having a successful project.
The first seminar, Tear Down the Wall, Open Up the Possibilities, on Saturday, May 5, will speak to customers interested in embarking on open floorplan renovations. Many homes in Baltimore were built in the early 1900’s, with smaller kitchens and closed off rooms for heating efficiency, and privacy.

Innovation LABS at the third annual Light City Baltimore concluded last week, packed with unprecedented access to Baltimore’s movers and shakers, and the nudge to get the city collaborating for change.
Imagine it’s the late 1800s. Entertainment and sport were quite a bit different than they were today. If you weren’t hunting foxes or quail, you were probably racing your well-trained horse across miles of lush, green fields.
With the 2018 spring real estate season underway, prevailing market conditions in the Baltimore area are cause for excitement. Interest rates are rising, but still low. The economy is strong, and Maryland has been steadily adding jobs, with the highest growth in the Baltimore metro area of Baltimore-Columbia-Towson, according to the Maryland Department of Labor.
House prices are steadily rising too. Median prices in the Baltimore Metro area rose 6.5 percent in February over last year’s prices, with Baltimore City showing close to an 11 percent increase. Like it or not, rising prices are an indication of a healthy real estate market, with inflation likely to drive prices even higher in the future.
