826DC’s Shop “Tivoli’s Astounding Magic Supply Co.” Grand Opening Saturday


From an email:

826DC is a nonprofit tutoring and writing center for students ages 6-18, and is part of a national organization co-founded by the best-selling author, Dave Eggers. This Saturday, we will be unveiling our brand new home inside the historic Tivoli building. Previously housed behind the Museum of Unnatural History, the new location will be fronted by an equally unique shop: Tivoli’s Astounding Magic Supply Co. This will be the first chance to shop the new store, while also learning about our upcoming Fall/Winter programs for students. All proceeds from the store benefit 826DC’s 100% free writing programs for DC youth.”
