This store offers a trip down a couple of memory lanes. Not only will you find three floors of antiques, vintage collectibles, new gifts and work by local artists, but many locals nostalgically recall the days they came here as children, when the building housed the Lazarus department store. The Emporium features art photography by George Romero and fantastical furniture created by his wife, Meg Romero. This piece -- "Isabella's Imaginarium" ($3,800) -- would add magic to any child's room. Fort Cumberland Emporium is at 55 Baltimore St., Cumberland. Call 301-722-4500 or go to fortcumberlandemporium.com.
