Miss Pixie's Furnishings and Whatnot, U Street Corridor
Tel: 202 232 8171
Concierge.com's insider take:
Many a funky apartment in D.C. owes at least some of its decor to this whimsical space on 14th street in the hip U Street Corridor. True to its name, the store is stocked with vintage furnishings from chrome bar carts to tiki stools, as well as all manner of "whatnot." And it's the whatnot—1960s Playboys one day, paint-by-number coloring books another—that keeps locals coming back. Well, that and the affordable prices.Colleen Clark
