From a press release:
“WHERE 1331 4th St. SE, Suite 108
WHEN October 7th through December 31st
Friday through Sunday
10:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. daily
Steadfast Supply, a weekend retail market celebrating DC-area makers and creatives, is excited to open in The Yards neighborhood on October 7th with retail running through the end of 2016. The market is the creation of Virginia Arrisueño, founder of DeNada and curator of the DC MEET Market and Parcel Market, and the uniquely industrial and interactive space is designed by Nathan Hill of Nh.d Studio. The concept space is housed in a 4,000 square feet space inside Arris (at the corner of 4th and Water Street), a revelation for DC apartment living located at The Yards. The space will offer unique retail brands and creative organizations (from DC and beyond) an exclusive opportunity to be a part of the growing Yards neighborhood, inspiring them to thrive, grow their businesses, and make Washington, DC their own. In turn, the space will play an active role in connecting Washingtonians with local creative minds helping build community and meaningful relationships.
Vendors will rotate roughly every month, and each round will consist of 15 to 20 vendors offering products ranging from men’s and women’s clothing and accessories, food, home goods, art, jewelry, skincare and beauty, and beyond. The opening lineup of vendors includes:
Rotating installations and art will be a major feature of Steadfast Supply. This effort will be lead by Kelly Towles, one of DC’s most notable emerging artists and founder of Holy Bones studio and creative agency. More information on artists and related events will be available soon.
Steadfast Supply will also incorporate a communal lounge and a working locale on-site with complimentary wi-fi to allow for co-working, collaboration and community building.
Every weekend, Steadfast Supply will host events ranging from creative workshops, food and drink tastings, family events, and more. Some of the first events include a botanical perfume blending class with Florescent on October 15th, an introduction to screenprinting with Nh.d Studio on October 22nd, and a watercolor class with artist and author Marcella Kriebel on October 30th. Future events will feature Sofar Sounds, Scissor & Comb Salon and more. Tickets for all events can be found on the Steadfast Events Calendar, and new events will be added regularly.”
