It’s the most wonderful time of the year. And while you are making that list (and checking it twice), make sure to stop over at the Village of Cross Keys. Minutes from downtown, Cross Keys offers some of Baltimore’s best shopping with local boutiques, as well as wonderful national retailers, tasty dining options and a Radisson hotel (a perfect spot for out-of-town family). Putting the charm in Charm City, the Village of Cross Keys has a little something for everyone. You’ll be checking off that list in no time and enjoying a hot toddy at one of the cafes!

Originally built in the mid-1950’s as the neighborhood hardware store, Ruxton Station was purchased and renovated in 2008. Maintaining its local charm, it is now home to high-end boutiques and businesses that continue to serve the needs of the neighborhood, while also appealing to the broader community. Free parking and a sophisticated ambiance provide for an extraordinary shopping or work experience.

Tulip Clothing began in 2011, when the brother and sister team of Richard Anderson and Debbie Seabold saw a need for more quality, cotton apparel in the market, and opened shop in a home basement in Silver Spring. The line, which features generously sized clothing for a chic, comfortable and conscious lifestyle, was an instant hit.
With so many purchases being made online these days, it’s getting harder for brick and mortar retailers to hold onto customers, even in the busier season. Many Baltimore neighborhoods are making the extra effort to push for local holiday shopping this year, by offering inventive perks like happy hours, caroling, or even a cookie crawl. Rather than sitting alone on an office computer to do your shopping this year, shoppers are taking advantage of the chance to see holiday shopping as an event, or fulfilling experience, rather than just a chore.
