Thread Returns to Union Market April 4 With a New Lineup of Retailers

Here’s what to expect at the pop-up shopping event.

Mark your calendars for Thread, where you can shop a slew of indie brands like Saint Clair jewelry and Follain beauty. Photographs via Thread on Instagram.

Last fall, Union Market hosted an experimental pop-up shopping event, Thread, in which 24 indie brands came together for a three-day extravaganza at the up-and-coming venue. Showcasing such coveted local labels as Saint Clair and Hugh & Crye, as well as emerging national names, the inaugural event proved a huge success, attracting upward of 5,000 visitors daily. Thus, round two was quickly put into the works—and will debut at Dock 5 in just a few weeks.

Slated for April 4 through 6, the pop-up’s second run boasts an updated lineup of retailers, including new DC-based brands such as apparel designer Erika Schreiber, bookseller Politics & Prose, and upholsterer Third + Grace, among others. AnthomMutinyMoore & Giles, and Saint Clair are (well-deserved) local repeats. Within the shop will be an installment dubbed “Here + Now,” which places special attention on six up-and-coming brands, including Zimbabwe-born TatusiTsion Rocks jewelry, and Schreiber.

The best part: Entrance to the event is free. See a full list of participating retailers online.

Thread. April 4 from 1 to 7, April 5 from 11 to 7, and April 6 from 11 to 5. 1039 Fifth St., NE.
