A new pop up space is coming to H Street NE and it's launching this week. Femme Fatale DC is a local community building collective of and for women artists, creatives, other workers, and business owners. Here's their description from the website:
FFDC is the District's womyn-only collective of local womyn creatives & small business owners. We highlight different entrepreneurs & creatives at each of our parties, with a giant networking party held every other month. Our goal is to foster and sustain our local community of womyn who support one another's creative & business endeavors. We build meaningful friendships & business relationships, and appreciate one another's gifts. Be real, genuine, & ALWAYS have fun, so drop the prejudice and competitiveness at the door & come ready to party!
The pop up looks to occupy two storefronts that make up 1371-1375 H Street NE that have been on the market for a while as retail locations and were last occupied by a Salvation Army Thrift store. There were (are?) also plans to eventually convert 1371-1375 into a 27 unit residential building.
The actual pop up experience sounds *amazing.* From the organizers:
Come shop from the sweetest up and coming local, womyn owned businesses in DC, including fashion, art, ceramics, up cycle furniture, organic and infused beauty products, and so much more. Oh and we have a pop up photography studio you can rent by the hour, a beauty bar, a lounge area for you to use for free and get your work done, and a whole lot more.
The pop up store launch party is this Thursday May 4, from 7 PM to 11 PM. The particular event is women only and you can RSVP here. There is a $10 cover. Post launch party, the pop up opens for everyone. It will run until July 30.
Good luck Femme Fatale DC!
