Jennifer Solomon and her mother, Patty Pearson, opened Whimsy in 2008.
Recently, Joanna Weymont joined Whimsy as the new manager.
I decided to visit this lovely boutique and chat it up with the ladies of Whimsy, Solomon and Weymont.
I know you participated in Federal Hill’s Fest of All fashion show, what do you remember the most about that night?
Jennifer Solomon: It was our second year participating.We chose customers to be the models.
Joanna Weymont: It was fun because everyone knows one another and helps to put on the show.
JS: My favorite part is walking down with the model at the end of the fashion show. Once a year, you get to see everyone in neighborhood supporting businesses and people around them.
What makes Federal Hill different from any other shopping distinct in Baltimore?
JS: Federal Hill to me is quirky. It’s like a mini Baltimore. Everyone knows each other and all the businesses work well together.
JW: For the community to stay strong, we have to work together and not work against each other.
What is your favorite Spring 2010 trends?
JS: Prints. Floral prints are everywhere. I am a huge print person anyway. It’s kind of a throwback to the 80s. I love that it’s actually in right now. Mixing prints is another great way of doing the trend.
What are some upcoming events at Whimsy boutique?
JS: Our two year party is May 15. Last year, we had VIP gift bags for the first 50 people. We were open late and had discounts,
JW: It’s on our to do list to brainstorm ideas
JS: I got some ideas already.
JW: She always has fabulous ideas.
