Change is in the air this spring at Green Spring Station. Sassanova, a local woman’s fashion boutique, will be opening its third location and first Baltimore County location at Green Spring Station later this spring. The shop will be taking over the former Becket Hitch store. But don’t worry, Becket Hitch isn’t moving far. The go-to gift spot is doubling its square footage and moving into a brand-new, custom designed store just steps from its original space.
A woman-owned business that is proud to be a part of the shop small, support local movement, Sassanova believes that style and individuality are the most important part of a woman’s wardrobe. Sassanova Green Spring Station joins the existing collection of Sassanova stores in Baltimore’s Harbor East neighborhood and in Bethesda. This third store will carry casual, work and all-occasion merchandise from many well-known up-and-coming designers along with the same brands loyal customers have come to love including Shoshanna, Frame, Parker and Amanda Uprichard. Customers will enjoy a personalized shopping experience with knowledgeable salespeople including gift selection, gift wrapping, home or office delivery (in a limited area) and special shopping event opportunities.
“Sassanova’s Harbor East location has satisfied a need for the professional and fashion forward women who live, work or travel downtown, but there are scores of these women in the County who we have not been able to reach just yet,” said Angela Tandy, owner of Sassanova. “These women are craving a conveniently located and accessible alternative to the big-box department stores – an intimate shopping option that offers a personalized, comfortable and memorable customer experience.”
“We have big things happening at Green Spring Station this spring and Sassanova joining our tenant mix is a significant part of this exciting growth,” said Ted Peddy, owner of Green Spring Station. “We are excited to welcome Angela and her team to Baltimore County’s largest collection of independent retailers and know that the mix of fashion, gifts and accessories that Sassanova offers will be well-received by our customers.”
Becket Hitch is regarded as the area’s premiere destination for seasonal and celebration gifts and home goods and décor, a range of paper goods and a wide selection of Maryland-inspired items. They believe that gifting is a personal, stylish expression that can be both fun and sophisticated at the same time. The store will continue to carry customer favorites including the Sydney Hale Candle Company and a larger selection of Julie Vos jewelry. New products include the Cisco furniture line, a handcrafted in the USA family owned company, and a greater selection of Roller Rabbitapparel, as well as some new specialty lines. The new store will incorporate more light, customized accents and the same warm, homey feeling. Customers will continue to appreciate the personalized shopping experience at Becket Hitch that comes with knowledgeable salespeople who specialize in selecting that perfect gift. Gift wrapping, special shopping event opportunities, new classes and programming are all on the agenda for the new store.
“When Becket Hitch opened five years ago, I was hoping to answer the demand for stylish, whimsical, unique gifts, accessories and home-goods that did not exist elsewhere in Baltimore, and to say that I have been overwhelmed by the community’s response to our brand is an understatement,” said Kohli Flick, owner of Becket Hitch. “Our customers appreciate the personalized, comfortable and memorable shopping experience where we really do know so many of their names. I can’t wait for this new store which will offer more of the Becket Hitch experience within a bigger space, including new programming and special events. ”
