As Kindred Spirits owner Rukmini Walker began selling jewelry, gifts and home accessories with a kiosk in the now-demolished Stapleton International Airport in Denver. After moving to the DC area in 1994, she opened stores in Congressional Plaza and Reagan National Airport. This summer, As Kindred Spirits will open at Westfield Montgomery.
The shop will continue Walker's tradition of using her business to raise funds for environmental, humanitarian and women's causes here and abroad.

Meanwhile, shoe and apparel retailer Journeys has vacated its central location for a new spot within the mall. Employees were stocking the shelves at the new location Monday evening, and it appears the store might open very soon.
