2015 Gift Guide: Falls Road

In Hampden, Falls Road doesn’t have nearly as many gift-shopping stops as 36th, but with just a few stores, it offers several solutions for your tricky special-interest recipients. For your comic-book and graphic-novel collector, you’re bound to find what you’re looking for between The Nerdporium (3853 Falls Road, [240] 743-9685, facebook.com/TheNerdporium) and Atomic Books (Atomic Books, 3620 Falls Road, [410] 662-4444, atomicbooks.com)—check to see if they have an author signing coming up. For your camera fiend, there’s Service Photo (3838 Falls Road, [410] 235-6200, servicephoto.com). Lovelyarns (3610 Falls Road, [410] 662-9276, lovelyarns.com) will satiate the needs of your favorite knitting addict. Contribute to your vestigial-audio-format collector’s supply at Celebrated Summer Records (3616 Falls Road, [443] 866-9988, celebratedsummerecords.blogspot.com). Get a new set of wheels for your skate bruh at Vú Skateboard Shop (3608 Falls Road, [410] 532-6113, vuskateboardshop.com), or a new vape for your smoke-free friend at Mystic Vape (3678 Falls Road, [410] 235-3714, mystic-vape.com). And the Hunting Ground (3649 Falls Road, [410] 243-0789, shophuntingground.com) is a gold mine for the kind of folks who wear vintage Gianni Versace black-and-white checker jeans with a tropical pattern over the crotch, but who wouldn’t when they’re only $20 and wow, what a gem. Afterward, you can chill over a drink at the Eightbar at the back of Atomic and play a game, or maybe see a performance at Church & Company (3647 Falls Road, [410] 493-0441, churchandco.org). For cheap eats, there’s Bella Roma Pizza (3600 Falls Road, [410] 467-2751, lovethispizza.com) and David’s 1st and 10 (3626 Falls Road, [410] 662-7779, facebook.com/Davids1stand10), or you can walk down Union Avenue and get some fancy shit from a Woodberry eatery, if you haven’t spent enough money already.
