Nestled in a charming retail space on State Street in Annapolis, Welcome Home is the best kind of surprise to stumble on when you’re out for a walk – the kind of place you discover and come back to again and again.
Sure, there are big home and kitchen supply stores around, but they’d be hard pressed to match the uniqueness in products, the satisfaction of shopping local and shopping small, and the downright cuteness I found in Welcome Home.
From candles to dishes to cookbooks to tablecloths and tools, Welcome Home has what you need to plan a gorgeous dinner party, including some key ingredients to level up your appetizers and main courses.
Welcome Home is open daily, and offers free curbside pickup. Every Sunday, they offer 10% off food and drink products.
Welcome Home is the sister store to Chester River Wine & Cheese Company in Chestertown, Maryland and was founded by husband and wife team John Laucik and Jenn Baker, who describe themselves as foodies who love a good dinner party and offer a great cocktail.
And in their store, you’ll find the answers to the tiny details that bring it all together. I chatted with their full time manager, Lis Engle, about the shop. Check it out below.
