St. Mary's County MD: First Catholics in New World - Getaway Mavens Shop Make Walk Kayak Leonardtown
SHOP: Leonardtown. Collaboration is in the air in this artsy town – from the “retail incubator” community of Shepherds Old Field (SOF Market) to the women’s fiber collective, New View Fiber Works, to the fantastic artist collective, North End Gallery.
SHOP: Shepherd’s Old Field (SOF Market). Helmed by the vivacious and engaging Gerrie Lheureux, the enclosed SOF is a “retail incubator” in a “town within a town.” Twenty vendors sell their unique wares inside the former Old Leonardtown Hardware Store that Lheureux renovated to look like a main street, complete with a concrete floor stamped to look like brick. There’s a “community Brew House” (the stylish Brudergarten) with an outdoor patio and upstairs room dedicated to vets, police, firefighters, nurses – First Responders, all. You’ll find a Farmer’s Market, Fitness Center, and everything from CBD Oil products to jewelry, ceramics, signs, prepared foods, Lori Schendel’s quilts, biodegradable garden markers, crab-shaped sugar cookies, antiques and more. There’s even a Pet Photography Studio. This wonderful assemblage is worth checking out.
MAKE/SHOP: New View Fiber Works. Misti Dayton declares that though she “owns” this shop, it’s really a 20 women strong cooperative of local artisans and farmers. New View supports a large community of yarn spinners, and in fact this establishment is a dealer for a specific brand of spinning wheels. Though not a “yarn shop” (you’ll find mostly finished textiles, lace, and supplies), you can take knitting, crochet, felting, weaving, tatting, and, yes, spinning classes here.
