Carl Ihli, owner of Bon Vivant Antiques, 104 Annapolis Street, says he moved his business out to West Annapolis precisely for the area's charm: "The businesses on Annapolis Street act as a nice transition between the professional buildings nearer to Rowe Boulevard and the family homes behind us."He
adds, "My customers can park right outside the store," noting the wealth of free parking available."In this business, people don't necessarily leave the store with a porcelain vase-they need a place to load a dresser or a wardrobe safely."
You'll find a variety of items at the antiques shops here, from period furniture and porcelain at Bon Vivant
to estate jewelry and sterling silver and linens at West Annapolis Antiques, 103 Annapolis Street, architectural elements at Joy Street Antiques, and upscale consignments and antiques at Absolutely Fabulous, 24 Annapolis Street.
