We want to highlight some of our wonderful brick and mortar stores. These are stores that carry Herban Lifestyle’s products. This series will give you some insight into some of our newest brick and mortar friends. Enjoy!
The U Street Corridor is a great little section of DC, filled with personality and wonderful little surprise stores along the street. Bouquets and More is one of those little treats.
The flower shop is owned by Vickie and Carmilla, two wonderful ladies who will not hesitate to chat with you when you come in. The shop itself is filled with wonderful smelling flowers and great little details in the displays.
Bouquets and More has a wide selection of beautiful bouquets, centerpieces, green plants for the office, and even terrariums. And, of course, your favorite Herban Lifestyle products!
So check out Bouquets and More at their store, or on Facebook! They will be having workshops in the Fall of 2013, so make sure to check their page for more details!

Here’s a taste of the great businesses that will be there:
On a recent shopping trip, I discovered a shop that I hadn’t noticed before. Ginger Root Design, at 1530 U Street, NW has a small, but excellent selection of vintage clothing. They also carry eco-friendly clothing and accessories by ReVamp for men and women that have been fashioned out of repurposed fabrics and notions. The owners of Ginger Root design, Erin Derge and Kristen Swenson, have a passion for sewing, so they offer tailoring and sewing classes. On my recent visit they showed me a cute little bow accessory made from repurposed men’s ties.
best shoe brand name ever!
The first thing that caught my eye was a pair of cute black patent leather pumps with a bow and interesting cut-out design. Because my feet are petite, I don’t easily find shoes that fit (which is a good thing as far as keeping a shoe addiction at bay), so I was thrilled when they turned out to be my size. The owners scored the shoes at an estate sale in Minnesota, from whence they hail. The shoes were unworn and in the original (awesome) box.

While I didn’t have time to thoroughly peruse their store, I did spot several cute women’s items that were fashioned out of a variety of great fabrics, and I plan to go back there soon for a real visit.
