So, my Friday was a discovery zone! I headed to Shaw to hit up DC Art Rave and check out some new vintage clothing sources.

Upon entering I was greeted with pleasantries- a warm hello, sensual scents, whimsical ambiance and loads of art to engulf. I was in blissful heaven.

















I had the pleasure of meeting a few of the vendors and speaking with them.

Ms. Bianca of BeLostandFound had funky vintage finds.

Percy wondered over to me to say “you haven’t checked out my space yet”! I simply replied, I haven’t left yet. I saved the best for last. He had prints for prints from the Mother Land his wife’s line is Cathy Designs.

K Wear Designs bad ass custom jewelry.

Bamessemger by Robbie Matthews featured handbags and wearable art.

There are a few other great artist housed there such as Glenn Richardson, Julian Oteyza and Nessar Jahanbin.

Stop pass if you dare. DC Art Rave is the place to grab unique out the box gifts for yourself and others.
