Shopping small in DC has never been more fun! Creative makers through the DMV are coming together in new and interesting ways, connecting creatives with consumers.

This connectivity is what keeps the pulse of DC pumping. There is the added benefit of spending money in our local economy, and having a greater impact here at home.
