You’ll Never Want To Leave This One Shop That’s So Perfectly DC
Washingtonians are an incredibly creative bunch. We are artists, artisans, chefs and creators and there is one unique shop in DC that is dedicated to everything created in DC and to those who create here. You need to make a visit to Shop Made in DC, the newest boutique that is so perfectly DC.
Shop Made In DC is the most locally focused shop in the district. It recently opened this past year with the mission to promote small businesses in the city.
Everything in the shop is made locally by a DC artist or artisan.
The shop has a little bit of everything. There's artwork, clothing, jewelry, furniture and home goods.
The items in the store will rotate so every month there will be a new crop of art, clothing, jewelry and crafts from different local vendors. The shop features products from 20-25 different vendors at a time.
The other side of the store is a cafe which is, of course, also locally focused.
The cafe serves local food, coffee, cider and beer, that is all made in DC. Just like in the shop, the vendors in the cafe will rotate.
There will be different foods and beverages served but you'll be able to a full day of food and drink from coffee and bagels in the morning to sandwiches and salads and beer and cider in the evenings.
Shop Made In DC is more than just a shop. It's also a community gathering space. Patrons can relax and unwind in the cafe. The shop even plays a soundtrack of local DC-based bands and musicians.
Shop Made In DC is in Dupont Circle at 1330 19th Street NW. They are open daily from 7am to 8pm during the week and 11am to 6pm on the weekends.
If you're an artist or local vendor, you can apply to be a featured vendor on Shop Made in DC's website. And if you're a Washingtonian, you should head to Shop Made In DC for unique and community-focused shop.
