shops of DC.

DC adventures continue with shopping!

Union Kitchen

My favorite souvenir shopping happens at local markets. I love finding the “made in [insert place of vacay here] items.” Union Kitchen is a boutique market that carries lots of locally produced goodies, most of which unfortunately I could not bring home this time around (luggage constraints) but look! Stuffed bagel holes! Pickled jalapeños!

Salt & Sundry

Salt & Sundry is a cute gift shop in the Logan neighborhood. Soft light, home goods, jewelry…. It was less easy to find the made in DC items (or maybe there just wasn’t a lot of them), but I did score some made in DC chocolate bars!

Little Leaf

Little Leaf is a sister store of Salt & Sundry. It. Is. So. Lush. The store is tiny and packed with plants so it’s a bit difficult to walk through, but who cares! Plants! I’ll take one of everything please!

The DC Pop-Up (at the airport)

The DC Pop-Up is where I bought the bulk of my souvenirs. I scored snacks, stickers, and a super cute ceramic planter. Seeing locally made goodies in airports makes me happy.

Here’s my mini bounty – most were for sharing. 🙂

Where are some of your favorite boutique shops? Share, share!
