Our Friends, Readers and Advertisers Say it Best...

We would like to express how delighted we were with Pamela's story on The Well-Dressed Nest.  The positive response has been overwhelming, and we are deeply touched with the thought and care she took in writing this article.  She listened carefully and, we believe, captured what we are trying to do here at our shop.  Our clients and colleagues have commented how accurate and descriptive her story portrayed our business.  Not only did she describe the details of what we do, but she also captured our spirit.
Eileen Hoyland & Sharon Sweet, Owners of The Well-Dressed Nest
"I just wanted to say that I have lived in Annapolis for over 20 years and have learned more about Annapolis through your magazine than anything else. I am a page marker, thumb through the magazine, then go back and read the articles that take my fancy. I've stopped doing that with the Insider, because I ended up marking every page. Now I just read it all from cover to cover. I can't help it!" Carol Stallings, 20 year resident

"I just read the article you wrote about us.....I was thrilled! Dad and I were just agreeing that we think it's the best and most accurate article anyone has written about us...locally or nationally! Lauren Russell, Russell & Mackenna

“The Congressional Record of the 109th Congress, First Session, Vol.151 No. 140, Thursday, October 27, 2005 AMERICAN INGENUITY AND ENTREPRENEURSHIP: HON. FORTNEY PETE STARK OF CALIFORNIA IN THE HOUSE OF REPRESENTATIVES. Mr. STARK. Mr. Speaker, I rise with my colleagues Representative BEN CARDIN of the Third Congressional District of Maryland and Representative STENY HOYER of the Fifth Congressional District of Maryland today to bring to our colleagues’ attention an excellent article that appeared in the Inside Annapolis Magazine this month about a family business in Galesville, MD. The business, Smith Brothers, Inc., is an excellent example of American ingenuity and entrepreneurship. We are proud to know Kenneth Smith and his son Jeff Smith and would like to congratulate them on the recent acknowledgement of their value to the community. America needs more people like the Smiths, who have a can-do attitude and are willing to work hard to excel. We have attached a copy of the article, which explains some of the history of the company and family and how their attitude has helped them in business and life. See "

"I just received the current June/July publication...and found myself reading every single article from cover to cover. The articles were very diverse, interesting, refreshing and informative.

"I just had to let you know, having just finished reading the Oct/Nov issue of Inside Annapolis, that I think you are doing a great job. The articles about all that is going on along West Street and with Cafe Pronto, the BB&T renovation, the new Navy basketball coach, the film festival - all of them really - are just terrific. It is fantastic that you are putting out all of this information. It draws us closer together as a community and gives us all greater interest in the inside stories of all the building and new business openings that are going on. It makes me want to visit each place and I think that is the idea, right? Thanks so much for the great work.
Keep it up."
