SEE THE PHOTOS from MyLittleBird’s pre-holiday gift-shopping extravaganza at Dock 5 at DC’s Union Market.
A great big thank you to all our vendors.
Scout Bags made selecting just one gorgeous color combination a hard choice; Core 72‘s activewear was cozy enough to wear happily at home; Yinibini Baby‘s tiny T-shirts and bibs were irresistible, interactive art books from the National Museum of Women in the Arts gift shop were a no-brainer for grandchildren. Everyone wanted olive oil from Via Umbria! For guy gifts, sleek selections from the Grooming Lounge; The Cheeky Puppy pleased our many dog lovers with pillows and toys. Covetable modern jewelry came from Sophie Blake New York, fun accessories and tunic tops from Urban Pearl and faux fur collars and yummy-colored sweaters among the many offerings from J.McLaughlin. Joe Elbert‘s hand-crafted furniture was heartbreakingly beautiful. ShoeLaLa‘s shoes made us forget our aching feet. We swooned over the bud vases, custom pillows and cocktail napkins from online home decor store Mintwood Home. And how about the fringe and fedoras from luxury consignment shop Ella Rue!
Hysteria, we first visited you in Old Town in 1999 when you were a tiny boutique. Now there’s so much more clothing and accessories! Estiletta with its clothing from new Spanish designers, Carpe Luxe‘s vintage clothing in all price ranges and Wild River Jewelry are fantastic new discoveries.
Thank you, Green Revolution for skincare analysis, Finding Ferdinand for custom-color lipstick, La Musa Art & Design for rugs, Madge Novel Vintage Modern for unusual vintage jewelry. And to you, Modern Mobler, for mid-century modern furniture. Oh, and two tables of DC authors signing and selling their new books (thanks to Upshur Street Books).
