Now, I know many people have either heard of this joint or visited it on 14th St. just north of T St., NW. But I was speaking to a friend the other day who hadn’t heard of it so I thought it deserved a mention for those new to the neighborhood or even DC. It certainly doesn’t look like much on the outside, and I’m always amazed it is still standing every time I walk by, but on the inside it is jam packed with super cool household items. And these items are amazingly eclectic. You can find paintings, tables, mirrors, salt and pepper shakers, sculptures and the list goes on and on. It is like a gigantic flee market crammed into a row house. The coolest thing I saw was a bust of Abraham Lincoln but it’s price of $200 was a little more than I was willing to spend. Sadly, my Lincoln tschoke budget is firmly set at $150. But don’t let that price scare you off there are tons of great finds here. Check out some more photos after the jump.
