WHAT'S IN THE DISTRICT?

New Sign Wecoming Visitors to the Annapolis Design District
          
The new sign above, blessed in concept by the City of Annapolis, welcomes us as we enter the part of town designated as the Annapolis Design District. This is clearly the City of Annapolis showing support for the many businesses off Chinquapin Road who have long catered to the enhancement of the home through skilled tradesman, craftsmen in  glass, metal, stone & wood, suppliers of household appliances, lighting & fine furniture, and both kitchen & interior designers. 
                                                     
This is great news, particularly for those of us who have been working in this area for thirty or more years. So New York has its Garment District, and Maryland now has its own Design District in the state capital. By recognizing what has already been the area's strength, the City of Annapolis and those who pushed for this recognition pave the way for two important visions. The first is that more such businesses will be attracted to the area. The second is that both Annapolitans and the neighboring towns will have a centralized mecca for many of their remodeling & new construction needs. 
                            
What makes this enticing is the concept of abundance, that if we work in community there will be enough work for all.  By working together, these artists & artisans will attract more business to the area than they would individually.  Just as there are many different kinds of businesses in the District available to the public, so are there many of the same kinds of businesses there, each with their individual strengths in both products & service.  Birds have been flocking in winter for millions of years, all essentially doing the same thing. 
                      
Here are just a few of the many such businesses and the links to more information about them:
