Welcome to our inaugural list of the top 38 indie shops in Washington, D.C. Big brands are moving into the Washington area constantly, but today we are showcasing our town's creativity and celebrating the independent, local boutiques that make shopping in D.C. so much fun. For the Indie 38, we're focusing on places to shop for clothing and accessories, and to keep the numbers more manageable, we've excluded consignment and vintage shops.
Click through to check out our list of 38 boutiques, and we want to hear your thoughts. Is there a shop you'd like to see on the Indie 38? Let us know in the comments and we'll consider it for the next update. You can also email us at email@example.com.
