Mayoral inauguration closes some downtown Baltimore streets

The Bead closing after 48 years

Sisters Anne Liner and Idy Harris first opened The Bead when they had only $1,500 to their names. Now, 48 years later, they are retiring, and on Jan. 31 will close the store, which does more than $1 million a year in sales. The Bead is in The Shops at Kenilworth, and was in the Rotunda for about 30 years.
