2nd Temporium to Open in Mt. Vernon Square

At the end of Dec. we learned of a temporium to open up in the future Nana’s space at 3068 Mt. Pleasant St, NW. Last week a press release went out announcing a 2nd location near the convention center:

The DC Office of Planning (OP) is pleased to award funding to establish two Temporiums, or local pop-up retail shops. A Temporium transforms vacant storefronts or spaces into a temporary retail space for local entrepreneurs to exhibit and sell their work. Awardees include Mount Pleasant Main Street and Shaw Main Streets.

The Mount Pleasant Main Street Temporium will feature handmade goods from independent crafters and artists, as well as special programming such as autobiographical and theatrical storytelling, trunk shows, educational panels, and live music. The Shaw Main Streets Temporium will incorporate local fashion and design, unique art installations and offer workshops, sewing classes and special events.

The Mt. Vernon Square/Shaw location will be located at 1005 7th Street NW (pictured above). Not clear when they will open but the Mt. Pleasant location has announced it’s opening date for Jan. 28th.
