An annual tradition celebrating Baltimore’s homemade goods returns tomorrow, with the opening of the Made in Baltimore pop-up shop in Station North. And in this go-round, the store will be open for nearly half a year.
The autumnal season is upon us and the shops in the Village of Cross Keys are busy welcoming fall with stylish seasonal fashions, all-occasion gifts and home decorating options alike. We at Fishbowl treated ourselves to a shopping trip this week to see what was new in the village. As always, we were not disappointed.
As Henri Matisse once wrote, “Creativity takes courage.”
Never has that been truer than in the modern commercial jewelry market, where companies mass produce focus-tested designs, trading more on off-brand cachet than artistic panache. For artisanal jewelers, finding a way to make individually handcrafted works stand out is a constant challenge to both creativity and the courage that fuels it. For Lema J Design and its signature cuff line, a powerful cause serves as inspiration for both.
After curating 22 pop-up shops over the last three years, Vanessa Milio has debuted her unique art, bath items and home décor products at the Village of Cross Keys.
