    Discovering a semi-secret retail spot that stocks all your favorite things is sort of a dream come true, and Adams Morgan jewelry boutique Turquoise certainly fits the bill. Open since last fall in a tucked-away 18th Street spot across from Marie Reed Elementary School, the boutique is a color-lover's playground, with table upon table of earrings, necklaces, bracelets, and rings organized by hue.

    Turquoise Boutique, 2118 18th Street NW (between Wyoming Avenue NW and California Street NW); no phone.
