Talk Shop: Cupcake Closing, Creative Natives Popup, Fashion at the Walters

Stylish news and events in Baltimore.

Cupcake Closing
After nearly 10 years of business and relocating from Fells Point to Green Spring Station, one of our favorite go-to dress
Cupcake, has decided to close its doors. Although we are very sad to
see them go, it looks like there are two exciting projects in owner Lisa
Schatz’s future. The first is the opening of a brand new and improved online
store. The other we are eagerly awaiting details on. In the mean time be sure
to check out Cupcake’s fabulous retirement sale and grab up those last goodies
while you can. We will truly miss Cupcake and we send them our best wishes for whatever
the future holds.

BUFF Nail Bar

Ladies, get ready to indulge. Soon you will
be able to go out with your favorite girlfriends and enjoy a pampered
day of manicures, cocktails, and wine in historic Ellicott City. Since the
opening of
Scrub Nail Boutique in Fells Point, owner Jasmine Simms has
started a
GoFundMe account with the plans of opening a sister nail bar
named BUFF Nail Bar. After all, every women deserves to experience the luxury of a fume free
nail bar’s tranquil atmosphere and product ingredients. The new
boutique will hopefully open on Main Street before the end of August just in time for
bridal season.
