Last minute local shopping for gifts?

3409 Connecticut Ave, NW

“Dear PoPville,

How about a topic for last minute local shopping for gifts? Where – what – how much – who for? For example – I was in “Wake Up Little Susie” today and found a couple of fun games – but also a very cool roll-up electronic keyboard – (to the size of a large water bottle) which was too pricey ($60.00) for an general gift, but could be super for a real wandering musician.”

Be sure to check out Shop Made in DC in Dupont and I also got this note from Upshur Street Books in Petworth (827 Upshur St, NW):

“We’re doing a blowout on Christmas Eve – all of our Children’s Books will be 25% off. The store will be open from 11am to 4pm for last minute holiday gift-buying. Your chance to stock up on great books for the little ones on your list – classics and new favorites.”
