From Toro Mata:

“Dear Friends:

After more than ten years, Toro Mata will be closing our 18th Street shop on January 24th, 2016.

We will forever be grateful for the many memorable experiences and treasured friendships that have come our way. We are especially thankful for the consistent support we received from our Adams Morgan neighbors over the years.

After we take a short break this winter, you will still be able to find us in DC at various markets and “pop up” events in the near term. We are also exploring new permanent locations for the future. Please continue to follow us on Facebook for the latest details.

We encourage anyone with a gift certificate or store credit to redeem in the next three weeks, but we will also honor these credits at any location in the future.

We are extending our Year End Clearance Sale until Sunday the 24th of January. Please stop in and enjoy the savings!

Warmest Regards,

Hector Zarate and Jim Nixon

    Such a bummer. Not only was this a great store, but Hector and Jim were very involved in the community and making Adams Morgan a better place.

    Another victim of the on-line economy. BUY LOCALLY, BUY RETAIL.

    oh man!!!! this is a loss! I bough many gifts there that were loved by the people receiving them. I have a few items from them that are so cool! great people managing a great store. No longer in DC but have great memories from that place!

    Man, this strip in Adams Morgan just keeps getting sadder and sadder. I hope the new hotel and recent nearby condo projects help revitalize this stretch of 18th. There are some great businesses here, but there are too many empty store fronts and sad weekend vomitoriums.

    Adams Morgan seems to have a problem keeping retail. Somebody told me Violet is also leaving 18th Street too! I hope Urban Dwell stays put…

    So sad to see this wonderful business go. I, too, bought so many gifts there. Great and helpful owners and unique merchandise. It is sad to see so much small retail like this become a restaurant/bar, real estate office or nail salon. Seems to be happening in so many neighborhoods all over town. I wish them luck wherever they go and thank them for their contribution as good neighbors.

    count me among the many who are very sad to see this place go! i’ve bought so many gifts for my family and things for my own home. they were my go-to.
