Both day-trippers and D.C. denizens alike flock to Eastern Market, one of the district’s oldest, fresh-food public markets.

Fornash Designs

Founded by designer Stephanie Fornash Kennedy, this concept shop bursts with candy-colored cocktail rings, bright bags, gold and silver bamboo bracelets, giraffe bangles and silver starfish cuff links. The style is unabashedly preppy: think pink-and-green duffels or wallets accented with grosgrain ribbon. Some accessories, like clutches and ribbon belts, can be customized on the spot.

Kramerbooks & Afterwords

This small but stellar independent bookstore and café in Dupont Circle has been a cult favorite for decades, long before it was customary to grab a cappuccino and a novel in the same spot. The selection of literature is marvelously edited and the hours generous. (It’s open 7:30 A.M. to 1 A.M. daily, 24 hours Friday and Saturday.) I defy you to leave without an armful of books. Even the children’s selection is smart and unusual.
