Grand Opening with Maryland's First Lady and Annapolis Mayor

Local by Design Annapolis Mall had our grand opening at Westfield Annapolis on September 6. It was an honor to meet First Lady Yumi Hogan who is an artist herself. She took the time to look at each display and meet the artists. Annapolis Mayor Gavin Buckley was also generous in showing his support for local businesses. Congrats again to the amazing owners of LBD: Suzi Matthews Jett and Susan Mrofka Sears.
