This Hampden gift shop perfectly captures the commingling of traditional blue-collar values and the offbeat that wonderful Baltimore attitude celebrated in the films of director (and Baltimorean) John Waters.

If you want to take home a real piece of Charm City, this is the place to shop. Call for opening hours.
There are plenty of gift shops in town that offer Orioles caps and stuffed crabs, but for a souvenir that's uniquely Baltimorean, this is the place to shop.

Here you'll find giant insects carved from telephone poles, fish with tin-can scales, plenty of very affordable jewelry, pottery and distinctive knickknacks. Nothing says 'Baltimore' like a beehive hairdo refrigerator magnet.
