The Proper Topper Popping Up in Cathedral Heights and Expanding Dupont Location

I’ve been getting pretty regular queries about what’s coming next to the Giant and Blue Mercury in Cathedral Heights – now we know – a Proper Topper pop up! From the owners:

“We are planning to open on Friday, Nov. 24th, in the space adjacent to Blue Mercury at the corner of Wisconsin and Newark. We’ll be there (10 – 8 M – F, 10 – 6 Sat, 12-5 Sun) through the end of December … and perhaps beyond.

My Dupont shop — where I’ve been since 1995, believe it or not! — continues to thrive, and we’re working on plans to expand that location in 2018.

In both locations, we’ll have an abundance of local goods, including our own DCProper collection of shirts and hats; in-store pick up for online purchases; curbside service for shoppers on the fly. Plus great play lists heavy on local music, and the friendliest staff around.Let Amazon try to match that : )”

Dupont location at 1350 Connecticut Ave, NW via Proper Topper
