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.
Kacey Stafford is an independent, mixed media artist in Baltimore, creating beautiful patterned paintings filled with color and texture. Her one-woman art business, Found Studio, offers her own hand collaged paintings featuring uplifting sayings, botanical and animal imagery, and Maryland themes. She manages an aesthetic that could fit in at Anthropologie, as well as it could a pop-art exhibit, or child’s playroom.
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). Read More →

This time of year, retailers are desperately trying to rope you into the excitement with alluring deals, and loud, panic-inducing advertisements. It’s hard not to feel the pull of shopping even if, in theory, you’d much prefer a quiet season of friends, family, and foods covered in cheese. Read More →
