We love Amazon Prime with its free and fast shipping, but while online shopping has its perks, there’s something to be said for exploring a brick-and-mortar boutique filled with amazing wares. Luckily, the D.C. retail boom means new shops are popping up left and right — which also means there’s at least one or two stores you’re missing out on. So, we’ve whipped up a handy guide to the newest and most notable shops you should add to your retail repertoire. Don’t worry — your online shopping cart will still be there when you get home.
