In this deceptively tiny shop tucked on a side street near DC's iconic Eastern Market, patrons have been known to spend hours browsing used books. An old house converted to a bookstore holds more paper than one could ever think possible; two levels are covered floor to ceiling in literature, history, poetry, and more. Somehow the owner knows exactly where everything is, though filing systems seem barely there. And if you can't find exactly what you want to purchase, there are often a few boxes of free books sitting outside the shop.
Located on Wilson Boulevard, Current Boutique is one of the well known fashion boutiques in Arlington that also stocks secondhand clothes. Take a pick from a range of branded and fashionable clothes and accessories, as well as some of the rare and fashionable vintage designs. If you have a piece of designer clothing that you no longer use, then you can also walk in here and get a great price for it, or best of all, get a piece of trendy clothing at cheap price. Expect to stumble upon products from brands/designers like ESCADA, Diane von Furstenberg, National Costume and many more.
Located in Bethesda’s trendy downtown, Mustard Seed is a unique clothing store that buys secondhand items with labels ranging from Target brand to Prada. The way it works is that customers set up an appointment and bring in their old clothing, accessories and shoes. If the store believes the items to be in good condition, they will purchase them and sells them in their cute boutique. Because of the nature of the buying process, Mustard Seed has a new collection every week. The selection, however, pales in comparison to the incredibly low prices. It is not uncommon to find a pair of designer jeans selling for pocket change. While second-hand clothing is their main staple, Mustard Seed also sells a more expensive and trendier new collection.
