Another opportunity for me to buy random crap - fantastic!
This time around, the event that will be sucking me in is the D.C. Big Flea Market. The flea market will will run on Saturday and Sunday at the Dulles Exposition and Convention Center and will feature over 1100 unique booths.
The chance that I will come home with at least one porcelain nicknack seems likely. Which got me thinking. If you could buy anything at the D.C. Big Flea, what would your one purchase be?

Last night’s premiere of TopChefDC, filmed in April, has me thinking back to the cooler days of spring when the city was infiltrated with tourists on their yearly pilgrimages to see the cherry blossom. While I long for the chillier weather and the beautiful, cotton candy cherry blossoms, I’m good with our present normal levels of tourists.
Today’s DC Craft lets you add a little bit of cherry blossom to your abode with this reinterpreted cherry blossom vinyl wall decal. The wall decoration comes in 17 potential colors, and features a series of 4 birds perched on blooming branches. Chose pink for the branches, and you’ve got a DC-centric piece of wall art.

Another spring trend report coming your way…
This time our exclusive We Love DC look comes from the new “lifestyle boutique” in Georgetown, M29 Lifestyle. The newest store to hit M Street is best described as kitschy and cool – carrying an assortment of gift items, home decor, and apparel with a unique focus on the artists and designers behind all of these hand-selected pieces. Everything about M29 Lifestyle is appealing to the eye, even the store itself is designed in such a fashion where natural light streams in from floor-to-celling windows and items are presented in a breezy, atelier-style way.
