Fans of Union Market’s Salt & Sundry may already know the store’s big news, thanks to this little message that popped up on Instagram last Friday. But in case you missed it: The housewares shop is opening a second location.
We checked in with owner Amanda McClements, who tells us that the new 850-square-foot space will open at 1401 S Street, Northwest—that’s the District apartment building, also home to Redeem, Lou Lou, Doi Moi, and Ted’s Bulletin—on the historic side of the building, and will feature a restored storefront and small courtyard. She’s looking to open in late summer.
The new space will offer McClements’s signature blend of gorgeous-meets-functional housewares and furnishings, plus tons of pitch-perfect gifts, such as locally made ceramics, candles, and letterpress cards.
“I’ve lived in the Logan Circle neighborhood for about 12 years and have always considered this stretch of 14th Street a hub for independent shops,” says McClements. “I’m excited to open a new Salt & Sundry there to complement the strong mix of locally owned businesses and bring a fresh design aesthetic.”
The opening of Salt & Sundry will add to a burgeoning set of design-focused retail shops along the 14th Street corridor, which already is home to the region’s only Room & Board and Mitchell Gold + Bob Williams stores, plus such other interior boutiques as Vastu, Lori Graham Home, Miss Pixie’s, Home Rule, Urban Essentials, and Timothy Paul Bedding & Home. And just last week, we got word that West Elm is rumored to open in a four-story space by late summer, as well. What home store will head to the area next? We’ll be watching.
