Pictures: What's in store along Route 165
The communities along the Harford and Baltimore County lines are bustling with fabulous consignment shops - each with its own personality and distinct specialties. Some offer a combination of gently used treasures and those that are brand new. And they're not the only locally owned shops where you'll come across great finds. Sometimes a tile store turns out to be a whole lot more. - Sloane Brown, Special to The Baltimore Sun

Dee Dee's Consignments & Gifts( Sloane Brown, Baltimore Sun / June 22, 2012 )
Much more than just a consignment shop, Dee Dee's also offers gifts and home decor. And that's just for starters. Walls in all the rooms around the store have been fancifully adorned by local decorative painter Nancy Billy Maher. "We want people to come in, sit down, chat and feel at home. They don't even have to buy anything," says Kimi Thiell, who owns the shop with daughter Dee Hyatt. What's more, Thiell happily refers visitors to other consignment shops in the area, even giving them hand-outs with all the names and addresses.
