Shopping in Washington, D.C.
Eastern Market, Capitol Hill Area: Artists, musicians, farmers, and more make this beautifully restored market a feast for the senses. Most vendors accept only cash.
Kramerbooks & Afterwords, Dupont Circle: Meeting up at Kramerbooks for a lazy Sunday afternoon of brunch and browsing is a quintessential D.C. experience.
Miss Pixie's Furnishings and Whatnot, U Street Corridor: The decor of the store may be bright pink, but everything for sale is "green." Buyers flock to Miss Pixie's for vintage furniture and home goods.
National Archives Store, The Mall: The hallowed hall where you can see the Declaration of Independence is also home to a store full of all-American gifts, including jewelry made out of real "red tape."
Tiny Jewel Box, Downtown: Since 1930, one family has owned and run this gem of a shop. On the day that her husband was inaugurated, First Lady Michelle Obama presented former First Lady Laura Bush with a custom-made Tiny Jewel Box leather bound journal and silver pen.
