Justine Mehlman Antiques is a nice Art option in the city. I wish their prices were more reasonable but they have a ton of items, which allows you the option to shop around within the store. There are a few good deals to be found but you will have to look around. Besides art they have antique household items, most very unique in great condition.
Alexia Gallery is located in a nice part of Woodley Park. It is metro accessible so you dont have to worry about finding parking in the area. My fianc loves exotic jewelry so she loves this store because they have more unique items that are tough to come by. The prices are cheap and their selection is out of this world. Check them out if you are looking for something different.
This place is tiny but dont let the size fool you. Christian Bernard has a great selection of quality items at low prices. I almost bought my fiancs engagement ring here but I settled on another place but while going through the process I came away very impressed. I highly recommend this place if you are looking for a good deal.
PROS: Staff, prices
This is more of a discount store than higher end jewelry stores in DC. They have everything from watches to suitcases. Lee Brothers Inc. seems to have regular deals on various items so I stop by here seeing if they have any great deals. The staff isnt that friendly and helpful but if you are in the Adams Morgan area and like a good deal check this place out.
Continental Jewelers is a very good jewelry store option in DC. The shop is metro accessible so it is always easy to get in and out of this shop if you are in a time crunch. This location has a great selection of items at very reasonable prices. If you are a novice shopping for jewelry just ask the friendly staff and they are always willing to lend a helping hand.
PROS: Prices and Staff
This is a decent comedy club in Maryland. If you dont feel like heading into the metro area this is a good option since it is a somewhat cheap option. Most of the time it is very easy to get free promotional seat. The waiter or waitress sometime hound the tables too often for drink orders but the prices are fairly reasonable.
CONS: Waiting staff
Joyce Motors is a great place to take a vehicle if you dont know a lot about cars. You can trust that the professional staff will give you an honest and fair assessment when you bring your vehicle in for a quote. I was very pleased with the entire process. My car was in and out in no time. The next time my car is need of service Im heading to Joyces.
PROS: Service and price
My fianc and I recently visited this art gallery in our neighborhood in Clarendon. I was surprised at the beautiful paintings only 2-3 blocks from my townhouse. Ive been living in this neighborhood for over a year and didnt even realize the gem in such close proximity to me. Even though we didnt buy anything the associate we spoke with was very helpful and intelligent. In the near future we will return probably not only to pursue the selection but also to possibly make a purchase. If you love viewing or buying art this is a great place to visit.
Recently I was in Dupont Circle visiting some friends and decided to patronize The Third Day because I was in need of purchasing a couple Holiday poinsettias for some friends and family members. The store had what I needed I was surprised that had a vast supply of different types and arrangements of fairly unique poinsettias. The plants were a hit and the price I paid was not unreasonable.
My Aunt loves accessories for her two little poddles so I visited a.k.a. Spot last week to pick up something for her dogs. Im not personally a big fan of putting dogs in sweaters but if you are looking for a sweater for your dog or puppy this place has a surprisingly wide selection. I was able to find something for my Aunt that they she adored. Thanks to a.k.a. Spot my Christmas gifts has kept me in the good graces of my Aunt.
