Vintage Pop-Up in Mount Pleasant

A temporary vintage clothing pop-up has opened on Mount Pleasant Street. R. Bernard Estate Liquidators is operating a month-long pop up in the upstairs space at 3165 Mount Pleasant St NW. The store is open Thursdays though Sundays until December 22. I stopped in Saturday and there was a wide selection of clothing and accessories for men and women, including a ton of vintage three piece linen suits, dresses, shoes, sweaters, scarves, and vests. And ties, ties, ties. There were tons of really stylish neckties. They even have some furniture, jewelry, and handbags.

The proprietors are amazingly nice and helpful. They also know fashion, especially the history of DC fashion, if you're interested in such things. Since most if not all of the clothing comes from estate sales and mass liquidations, large swaths of clothes are from the same era, or are similar sizes. However, there's plenty to look through and the selection has potential to change every week based on new acquisitions. The hours of the pop-up are Thursday - Saturday 11:00 AM to 7:00 PM, and Sunday 12:00 PM to 5:00 PM.
