What's in store in Station North and Charles Village [Pictures]
You may not think of Station North and the lower end of Charles Village as a shopping mecca. But, there are some great little shops tucked along Charles Street, and a store offering bargains galore not far away on Greenmount Avenue. The owners and their employees will welcome you like family. And what you find in their shops will also add warmth and charm to your home. -Sloane Brown, Special to The Baltimore Sun

Station North Thrift Store( Sloane Brown, Baltimore Sun / July 27, 2012 )
This clean, well-organized thrift shop is a program of Adopt-A-Block. Not only will you find "gently used" home furnishings here - many from local businesses, schools and hospitals - but some of them have gotten a bit of a facelift, courtesy the creative efforts of staffer Chiqui Rivera.
This loveseat and chair are part of a set ($200) that includes a matching sofa. Rivera gave the 31-inch diameter table a boost by covering a drab center with tapestry and covering it with glass ($35). He also "improvised" with the 18-by-18-by-21-inch end table, adding a ceramic tile surface to the top ($35). The table lamp ($7) features a lime green ceramic base.
Station North Thrift Store is at 1400 Greenmount Avenue. Call 410-230-0829 or go to stationnorththriftstore.com.
