All eyes are on Old Hilltop, as the Preakness Stakes brings lots of visitors to town for the weekend’s largest draw. But don’t sleep on chances to get out for a farmer’s market kickoff, birding or a bike tour of West Baltimore.

Note: With all the inclement weather expected this weekend, please check with the venue for any scheduling changes.

Hunting Ground Celebrates Five Years with All-Day Affair

The Hunting Ground celebrates five years.

This may be hard to believe, but as of this week, Hunting Ground has been in business five years. The vintage fashion boutique in Hampden celebrates its fifth anniversary on Friday in the same place it started, but with a brand new look.

Taken Pop-Up Shop at Green Spring Station and the Strand

Taken features vintage and handmade treasures. The pop-up shop appears at Green Spring Station Maker’s Market this Saturday

This weekend, Makers and shoppers alike will descend on Green Spring Station for the first annual Green Spring Station Maker’s Market. From 10am-5pm on Saturday, some of Baltimore’s best artists and crafters will ‘set up shop’ around the center of Green Spring Station. The day will host DIY workshops, cocktails, and snacks for reasonable ticket prices (the craft show itself is free). In addition to the individual crafters, a unique pop-up shop, called Taken, will feature a curated mix of vintage finds and handmade goods by local makers. Taken is “popping up” in multiple city locations this holiday season (they are also taking over the new Strand Theatre on Harford Rd every weekend through the holidays). 

Vintage meets Handmade in a new Mt. Vernon Shop

Sometimes what pairs best with age are age-old traditions. If you agree, then look no further than Mount Vernon. Local vintage clothing goldmine, Keeper’s Vintage, has been in multiple locations in Baltimore, both permanent and nomadic. Starting at outdoor events, and in shared spaces, owner Erica Bentley eventually opened her own space in 2015. Craftswoman Letta Moore of Knits, Soy & Metal has been selling her earth-conscious line of hand-poured Soy candles, chunky hand-knit scarves, and delicate handmade jewelry at art fairs and online, as well as to local retail shops for years. Both women collected sizable followings as they grew their small businesses. Now the two are teaming together in a new, more permanent location of Keeper’s Vintage on Read Street, opening just in time for unique holiday shopping.

Fabulous Vintage Everything at Bottle of Bread


Vintage at Bottle of Bread

catch of the day fish (2)Bottle of Bread has been providing Baltimore with super cute, exquisitely inspired clothing, furnishings, and art for over a while now. But only recently did the doors to the actual, brick-and-mortar Bottle of Bread shop open. You can now pop into the lovely little boutique in Fells Point for all things charming, dainty, a little rough-around-the-edges, and yet totally dreamy. We love the model at Bottle of Bread that combines well-worn vintage classics with unique pieces made by local designers and artisans. Whether you’re looking to dress up your living room or yourself, Bottle of Bread has the kind of exceptional pieces of chic we just love.

The gorgeous jeweled lace up back.


This is a stunning, gorgeous, Ralph Lauren Collection (purple label) beaded gown.
The bugle beading and detail on this dress is unreal. It is made of stretchy fabric and is so sexy.
This is Red Carpet Worthy.. It was worn once to a socialite’s wedding reception at The Pierre Hotel In New York. The original retail was $9,500.00

New Store In Old Church: The Hunting Ground In Hampden


Welcome to our new series, Shop Girl, which will review a local store every other week.  

Hunting Ground

Where: “In the Old Church”
3649 Falls Road, Hampden, 21211

Hours: M-Thurs. 11-7, Fri. and Sat. 11-8, Sunday 12-6

hunting ground:front

It’s hard to write about Hunting Ground without using the words “hipster” or “Brooklyn,” but let’s just say that if you’ve ever wondered how you’d look in an orange wool-plaid CPO jacket ($48), a white fringed leather bolero ($52) or a floral prairie apron ($12), this is the place. Since opening in 2012, young owners Jenna Hattenburg and Jess Soulen have a demonstrated a strong fashion sense, separating the gold from the dross with an expert eye. Mixed in with the vintage, which the owner defines as “over 20 years old,” are small, preppie-retro brands like MinkPink, Commune, and Courtshop Denim. Prices are about the same as Target, (mostly under $100, vintage cheaper than new) at a higher level of quirkiness and quality. Still, vintage is an acquired taste, and the staff (aka owners) while pleasant, did not seem that interested in pursuading customers of its charms. On the other hand, an online review describes the service gratefully as “Chill. They leave you in peace.”  Which certainly has its appeal.

From the super-cool space itself, an old stone former church (Hampden Presbyterian) on Falls Road, to the fun displays inside — taxidermy, art, Indian blankets, old books, antique cabinets and a rotating series of pop up shops — and the indie music you wont hear anywhere else, Hunting Ground is super on trend for its folk-chic customer. Tongue-in-cheek, yes, but heavy-handed irony, no.  Think “Laverne & Shirley”  meets “Girls.”

Designer Duds and Jewelry Classes at B’more Betty



catch of the day fish (2)First things first: Betty is not the name of the style maven behind this new Federal Hill institution. Cleverly enough, it’s an acronym that stands for Bringing Exclusive Trends To You. And who’s going to argue with that? Betty popped up in Federal Hill this past November, and has been delighting local fashionistas ever since. Most of Betty’s fans come in the designer clothes (Prada, Louis Vuitton, Chanel, Donna Karen…must we go on?) of every era. But Betty is coming out as a one-stop, all-inclusive design haven with their new offering: jewelry-making classes.

Pigtown Design: I <3 Cashmere


Right before I left for college, a friend of my mother’s gave me some hand-me-down cashmere sweaters, and I’ve been in love ever since. It’s gotten to the point where I can no longer wear wool sweaters – except an old one someone’s gran in Ireland made that I bought at a carboot sale in Wales for about 50p.
