If you aren't aware, U Street is where it at! In D.C. that is. I was in awe of the amazing locally owned boutiques and shops. I was in Vintage Mecca Wonderland!
My first stop was at Foundry. OK, this place is like a little haven of rust, glam and retro funk all in one! I was really looking forward to getting inside and checking out the goods!
I had to hit the inhaler before going in... I felt some tightening in the chest from all the excitement.
This really spoke for its self. This is some FUN stuff! Vintage table with distressed wood... sigh..
OMG- Really???? This had to be one of the coolest things I have ever seen! So Vintage, so Rock n' Roll! Can I put this on my Christmas List?? I promise I have been a good girl this year... any takers?
Burlap stool?...yes please! So hot!
So lovely, rust and all.
Old Printing Press letters, this would be so fab as a table top with glass on top.
The owner of the store Yvette was so nice to show me around. Answer my typical crazy lady questions, (I had quite a few). This is a close up shot of a dresser that she did. The distressing she did was amazing. Everything was just truly lovely.
Here is another example of the gorgeous layered tones she used....
I may have squealed a bit when I spotted this.. possibly frightened a few customers. Oh well.. that's how I vent my gratitude. I'm weird like that.
In every direction I turned I found more and more lovely finds...
If you happen to be in Washington D.C. you should make the time to go search out this hidden treasure of a store. Believe me, you will not leave disappointed!
