Baltimore knows how to shop, with bustling malls, friendly neighborhood boutiques and a concentrated area of antiques. On the hunt for souvenirs? Anything bearing an Orioles logo is a safe bet. Crab memorabilia is also popular and easy to find; Faidley's even ships frozen crab cakes to your kitchen.

Spread over three buildings, Harborplace & the Gallery are chock-full of clothing boutiques, souvenir shops and specialty stores. Harborplace comprises the Light Street Pavilion and the Pratt Street Pavilion; the Gallery is attached to the Renaissance Baltimore Harborplace Hotel.

Mount Vernon's Antique Row, America's oldest antiques district (circa 1840's), spans the 800 block of North Howard Street and the 200 block of West Read Street. Browse for European and American period furnishings, fine art, special-edition books, Chinese porcelain and more.

One of Baltimore's hottest new shopping districts is Harbor East. Offerings include designer clothing, handcrafted jewelry, handbags, fine wines and chocolates, and other upscale goods.

Find unique and quirky shops on "The Avenue" (West 36th Street between Keswick and Falls Road) in Hampden. Keep your credit card at the ready for art, books, vintage clothes, antiques and housewares.
