The mission of Shop Made in DC is to spotlight the work of the many talented artisans, makers, and creatives who produce goods right here in the nation’s capital, and Shop Made’s brick and mortar retail location in Dupont Circle showcases some of the area’s most unique purveyors of art, furniture, jewelry, housewares, and fashions. Some of the currently featured makers include Atypical Notion artworks, Bailiwick Clothing Co streetwear, and Urban Forest perfume. You’ll also find an on-site cafe that rotates in new fast-casual menu concepts every few weeks. Right now Ivy City Smokehouse, M’panadas, and Mastiha Greek Bakery are taking center stage, along with distributors of local coffee, tea, wine, beer, and kombucha.
Check the website for an updated calendar of events, including workshops, panel discussions, and live music. If you’re looking for a one-of-a-kind gift, consider the “Made in DC” signature gift boxes that make thoughtful housewarming, going-away, or retirement gifts.
