Ten random things: Reader Request Month:, day 32

Ten interesting places to shop in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area:

  1. Alexandria Farmer's Market, Alexandria (fresh produce)
  2. The Persnickety Palm, Leesburg (women's clothing)
  3. Backstage, Capitol Hill (theatrical supplies)
  4. The Ship's Hatch, Arlington (nautical antiques and collectibles)
  5. Barry's Magic Shop, Wheaton (magic tricks)
  6. Big Monkey Comics, Mid-City (comic books)
  7. Artisan Lamps, Cleveland Park (new and antique lamps)
  8. Three Dog Bakery, Bethesda (gourmet dog treats)
  9. House of Musical Traditions, Takoma Park (acoustic musical instruments)
  10. A Little Shop of Flowers, Adams Morgan (exotic plants)

Today's list is for angelchicken, who wanted to see farmer's markets in a list. Just one, though. Full disclosure: The Persnickety Palm is formerly owned by my sister-in-law, and currently owned by a friend of mine from my church. Big Monkey is a shop I'm familiar with via the Internet -- two comics blogs I regularly read are written by Big Monkey employees -- that I keep meaning to visit when I'm downtown, but have yet to get around to. The other eight were drawn from Gotta Shop! 50 or So Great Little Places in the D.C. Metro Area by Paula Coupe.
