Five months after Gundy’s Gift Shop closed in Roland Park, a new merchant is taking over the space.
Love Me Two Times, a “high end designer consignment shop” currently located at 600 Wyndhurst Avenue, plans to move to the former Gundy’s space at 739 Deepdene Road and open by Feb. 1.
Owner Andrea Kaplan said the new shop will feature everything her current one does — clothing, shoes, purses and accessories, including jewelry from the 1800s to the present. Past sales have included fashions by Chanel, Dolce & Gabbana, Helmut Lang and Yves St. Laurent.
Kaplan, a former buyer for the old Octavia shop at The Village of Cross Keys, said she has been successful over the past five years on Wyndhurst but was looking for a location that gave the shop more visibility.
Located directly across the street from the Roland Park post office and around the corner from Starbuck’s and Eddie’s, it’s one of the most visible spots in the neighborhood. The real estate is owned by the same group that owns Eddie’s of Roland Park. Free parking is available in the garage across the street.
“I was real excited to get that space,” Kaplan said. “I’ve done pretty well here [on Wyndhurst], being hidden. I’m hoping, with more exposure, to become even more accessible.”
Gundy’s was a 77-year-old institution that closed at the end of July. It started in 1939 in the Pimlico area and moved to Roland Park in the 1950s. It moved to the Deepdene Road location in 1984.
Kaplan said she plans to open the shop Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. or so. She also plans to be open some Sundays, and she’s looking forward to welcoming customers to the new location.
“I love Roland Park,” she said. “It’s a wonderful community with a great mix of people…That space is going to look pretty full by February 1.”
