For many of you this is the last weekend to get out into those streets and shop until you drop. I ventured out to the Nordstrom’s in Tyson’s (Virginia) last weekend to see the Nichole Lynel collection in-person and let me tell you the people were out and about!!! Nordstrom’s had a live DJ, no doubt to make the shopping experience more fun and festive; it worked. I definitely felt far less anxious about being out among the masses. A good bop can put anyone in a better mood. That said, if you’re in the DMV this weekend, this one’s for you…
Shopping and other things to do in the DMV
Still looking for cool and interesting gifts for your loved ones, here are few places you should visit:
Holiday Markets to Visit
Truly there is no competition. The Victura Park Holiday Market (Fri-Sun, entry, , Kennedy Center) and the National Arboretum’s Procrastinator’s Holiday Market (Sat, entry, , Arboretum) are happening this weekend. There’s nothing like the views from the Potomac and you view the last fall foliage for the year; either way there isn’t a more scenic venue to do your holiday shopping.
Pop-Up Markets are literally Popping-Up Everywhere
Here are a few seasonal markets where you can finish your shopping at here in the DMV (DC, Maryland, and Virginia).
DC- There’s literally like a pop-up every day! Visit the 6th annual holiday pop-up (Sun, entry is free, Van Ness). There’s also a Star Wars-themed Artists & Artisans Winter Vendor Village, (Sat, $20 entry, Lamond Riggs). Last but not least there’s a Holiday Market at The Ven (Sat-Sun, free entry, Dupont).
Virginia: Attention all dog owners/lovers, bring your dog to the Rosslyn’s Holiday Market (Fri-Sat, Free entry, Arlington) or maybe watch a movie at the Winter Bazaar at the Arlington Drafthouse (Sun, free entry, Arlington).Continue reading “Shopping and other things to do in the DMV”
