November 4: Shop Opp at Union Market in DC...Shopping Extravangaza!

This looks like a fun time...I'll be here selling/signing books, but I'm going to find it hard not to stray a bit to see what else is going on!

From the My Little Bird website:

Save the Date–November 4!

COME TO MyLittleBird’s first Shop Opp, a pre-holiday gift-shopping extravaganza!

We’ll be at Dock 5, the cool industrial-vibe event venue at DC’s verrrry cool Union Market in the city’s wholesale district off New York Avenue NE. 2 to 8 pm. Be there or be . . . very sad.

Who’s going to be selling at the sale?

Well, to start, the outrageously popular Scout BagsCore 72, bringing activewear and lotsa gifts for the active lifestyle; Yinibini Baby, with cute cotton clothes; Erwin Pearl, whose accessories last month made their local debut at Tysons; the National Museum of Women in the Arts gift shop; Via Umbria, with fabulous Italian imports; for guy gifts, The Grooming Lounge;The Cheeky Puppy (woof!); great selections from Sophie Blake New York,Urban Pearl and J.McLaughlinJoe Elbert‘s hand-crafted furniture, made from hardwood trees felled by the 2012 derecho. And how could we forgetShoeLaLa and the online home decor store Mintwood Home!? And more, of course–about 30 vendors.

We’ll offer skincare analysiscustom-color lipstick, rugs, vintage jewelry, and much more. Oh, and two tables of DC authors signing and selling their new books (thanks to Upshur Street Books). [That's me!!!!!!!!!]

Have we forgotten something? Yes: refreshments from Teaism and Occasions and goodie bags from Bluemercury and Follain.

So please come! Wander by in the afternoon. Stop by after work. We’ll be there waiting for you. Bring girlfriends. Bring boyfriends. Bring your holiday shopping list. (And on top of all this wonderfulness, there’s lots of free parking plus a whole market full of vendors downstairs–hear me, Salt & Sundry and Righteous Cheese?)

MyLittleBird Shop Opp, at Dock 5 at Union Market, 1309 5th Street NE, 2 to 8 pm. More information: 202-213-6916.
