ATTN Local Entrepreneurs! DC Ace Hardware “Made in” Programs Now Accepting Apps!
Looking to sell your awesome locally made products in a retail store? Locally owned and operated A Few Cool Hardware Stores will be launching their second season of the Made in DC program starting August 1st. To meet the demand for locally sourced products in their stores, A Few Cool Hardware Stores owners Marc Friedman and Gina Schaefer partnered with Think Local First DC to create the initiative, “Made in DC”. The program is intended to build, support and sustain businesses producing locally made products, and encourages entrepreneurship by showcasing the local DC creative economy.
The program’s success during its beta launch in April 2013 with local vendor “Tina Seamonster”, has led A Few Cool Hardware Stores to expand the Made in DC concept to their four Maryland based locations with their newest program, “Made in Maryland”. The 9 locally owned and operated Ace Hardware stores in DC and Maryland will dedicate a section of each store to showcase locally made products from a local entrepreneur. Applicants must reside within the DC or Maryland area to qualify for the programs, which is accepting vendor applications for the next launch in August.
The goals of the “Made in” Merchant programs is to get more locally sourced products into brick-and-mortar retailers. A Few Cool Hardware Stores will promote the program and chosen vendor via their marketing resources and in store signage for both programs. Think Local First DC will help member retailers find the right fit of MADE in DC products and will provide marketing materials and promotion to support after procurement. Applications for both initiatives are due by 5pm on Friday, July 5th. Send applications and inquiries to [email protected]. Details and application available at http://www.acehardwaredc.com/made-in-dc-and-maryland.html
We recently finished putting in wood flooring at our condo, and have a couple boxes of excess white oak flooring (not leftover pieces — full, unopened boxes). Unfortunately, we’re past the return window, so I can simply take them back, and the amount is too small for Habitat for Humanity. Does anyone know of other organizations in the DC area that would accept it as a donation, preferably ones that would come pick it up?
About 5 years ago I was certified as a First Responder (40 hr training) but my certification has since expired. I was wondering if anyone knew of First Responder (may be called Emergency Medical Responder) trainings in the DC/MD/VA area. Any info would be appreciated – thanks!
I’ve got mice that aren’t taking the bait. Traps have been set with peanut butter but these varmints must have a peanut allergy. What should I try next?
A little background about myself: I’ve been employed with the Fed in DC for the past few years, but have been considering a switch into medicine. I’ve spent a number of months volunteering in a hospital and a few clinics around the city in non-clinical roles but would like to shadow a doctor to gain a better sense of the clinical duties a physician faces on a day-to-day basis.
However, it’s been a bit challenging to find opportunities to shadow physicians. Many hospitals in the area do not offer shadowing opportunities, and the ones that do typically reserve them for students (if the hospital is tied to an academic institution). I’ve leveraged a few of my personal contacts (personal primary care physician, friends’ relatives who are doctors, etc.), but would like to reach out to the community to cast a wider net. Cold-calling doctors isn’t quite so effective, and my own personal network of medical professionals is pretty small. Anyone know of any friendly physicians (any speciality!) who’d be willing to let a young professional shadow them for a day or more?
No worries; I can provide references, sign confidentiality agreements, be subjected to a background check, etc. I’m just a curious and inquisitive guy trying to thoroughly research the medical field before making any major life decisions 🙂
Does anyone have a travel agent they can recommend in the DC area? I am looking to plan a trip with multiple destinations and when using online resources, they always create round-trip flights. I was wondering if a travel agent might be able to more successfully string together multiple one-way trips without it costing a fortune. Any experience anyone has (or other ideas for how to do this online) would be appreciated.
My name is Sabrina and I am the owner of Ma Ma’s Southern Cuisine located at 3118 Georgia Ave. NW and I asked myself, how can we business owners make things better for our communitie(s) and my thought was to ask the people within the community. Although my job is to satisfy all my customers whether in or outside community I would like to hear some suggestions from within so that I can better serve you.
My parents recently gifted my wife and me their old car (it was registered out of state). I went to the DMV yesterday to get it inspected, tagged, registered, and have the title changed. In addition to all those charges, I was also charged a 6% excise tax on the value of the car. I politely argued with the DMV agent about the tax charge (you can guess how that went), who exlained that the ONLY ways you don’t have to pay the excise tax is if the car was transferred between parent and child or between spouses AND it was already registered in the District. It seems like a racket to me. But is it a legal racket? Anybody else have experience with this? Was the DMV’s explanation correct?
My house has an addition on it with the walls abuting the property line, which means that I have walls exposed on both my west and east sides. I need to do repairs to the stucco on the exposed walls of the addition, but the neighbor on one side has refused to give access to her property for work to be done. The situation is complicated by the fact that while some of the wall is exposed, some of it is partially covered by her decks and so it would require going onto her decks. Her decks are falling apart so I am also concerned about any consequences that may come from that. I would be happy to contribute to helping repair her decks, but realistically, her decks need to be torn down and rebuilt and that would cost far more than any damage to my house from not being able to repair my stucco. I’ve tried discussing the issue with her as has my contractor and she has consistently refused to allow him to do the work that needs to be done. So I am now trying to figure out if there are any other solutions.
Thanks for any help you may be able to provide.
We are working on socializing our 4 month old puppy, but puppy kindergarden just ended and our next class doesn’t start until mid September. Don’t want to brave dog parks with her yet and she is still a little freaked out by too many people at once. We live near Fort Slocum, so let us know if you have a fenced in area and a friendly dog!
