Talk about shopping Shangri-La. Cocktails and consumerism collided. And all for a good cause – supporting local folks creating cool stuff in the city.
Dozens of folks strolled the corridors of the Sagamore Pendry – cocktails in hand – to check out loads of Baltimore city-made products.
The evening also offered the opportunity to meet the local creators of things that ranged from gifts, apparel, home goods and edible goodies.
The event was a collaborative effort between Baltimore Development Corporation’s Made In Baltimore program, the Baltimore Integration Partnership, and the Port Covington Development Team.
