Federal Hill’s Businesses Truly Shine

Highlighted in the “AT HOME” section of The Baltimore Sun newspaper are five unique Federal Hill shops. Entitled “For those nights at home,” the article focuses on stores offering home furnishings and housewares that would be delightful inside any home.
Artesanos Don Bosco (828 S. Charles Street) offers beautiful hand-crafted Peruvian furniture. But, it is involved in more than just the business of selling. The store supports a nonprofit organization that provides financial aid to Peruvian communities. The artisans have been trained by Italian craftsmen through the program which operates in Peru. Better yet, all of the profits go right back to the artisans and their communities. (

At Klein’s Antiques (912 S. Charles Street), you will find antique items being sold at wholesale prices. It's also a two-for-one situation -- Baltimore Antique Brokerage buys and sells the products, while downstairs at Federal Restorations and Antiques, the items are restored.

Phina’s for the Home (919 S. Charles Street) is offer affordable and high-quality lines of linens, throw pillows, hand soaps, comforters and more. (

Shofer’s Furniture (930 S. Charles Street), established in 1914, is showecased for its five floors and 70,000 square feet of attractive furniture and home furnishings. And if that wasn’t enough, they also have a clearance center located across the street. (

Zelda Zen (46 E. Cross Street) was included for its unique, playful home decor items, kitchenware, and their famous “Hon Balls." (410-645-2424). (Pictured above)
