The Shops In Frederick

Shops In Frederick, MD Are Worth The Trip

Aside from my vending at the marvelous Summer In Paris Retreat (organized by the fabulous Korie B),

I had the most fun shopping with girlfriend Carol and bringing home bags of new found treasures. I alluded to all this fun in a recent post and had promised to fill in some of those retail details.

Driving through Frederick, MD, on the way
to Harper's Ferry, WV, girlfriends just have to stop!  Lot's has happened to improve this community over the past several years and the town is alive with art and culinary pleasures.  I love Market Street and always look forward to stopping in some of the most chic shops, that just seem to scream "welcome girlfriends everywhere."

Our first stop is Molly's Meanderings.  Oh, how I love the hat's there.  One can also find a large selection of Pandora and Brighton jewelry, fashion clothes and home decor there.

A few steps out the door takes you next door to The Muse. Owner Whitney Bingham is on top of her game with all the local and tri state artists.  My Pennsylvania girlfriends just love Whitney. The Muse carries the most unique and beautiful jewelry, hair accessories, clothing and home decor.  I love the shoes and am partial to some of her metal artists wonderful work.  Whitney schedules some of those very artists to hold classes, so be sure to check out her listings.   I just had to have this hair clip created by Poppy Chic.

After all that musing around (he he),  we found ourselves in the Simply Beautiful Boutique.  Owner Beth Pumphrey arranges the flowers in the shop herself.  Beth carries Vera Bradley and Lilly Pulitzer and just "simply beautiful" things!

A more recent addition to Frederick's shabby and certainly chic retail is a store called Tiara Day.  Yes, real tiaras can be found there.  Honest to gosh, real tiaras! Owner Maria Peck has the best sense of wonderful ephemeral feminine chic for sure.  Her store is filled with a surprise at every turn, all staged in a bright spacious SoHo style warehouse look.  White washed brick showcase chandeliers, chandeliers, chandeliers and give definite character to the lovely vintage dressforms, perfume  bottle jewelry and literary pieces.  I just had to have some of these knobs for my own studio!

Viva la chic!
