Keepers Vintage opens November 1 in a new Mt Vernon Location

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. Read More →
