Martha’s Outfitters at 2114 14th Street NW has been a staple of the 14th and U corridor. It is a destination for young professionals, hipsters, families, and active ‘thrifters’ in the area to discover brand name clothing and vintage finds at budget-conscious prices.
With a new neighborhood thrift store in historic Anacostia, Martha’s Table is expanding its presence east of the river. The second location is located just up the block from the iconic Big Chair at 2204 Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue SE.
“We are thrilled to have found a location in historic Anacostia.” says Patty Stonesifer, CEO of Martha’s Table, who is based at the 14th Street NW location. “There is wonderful community energy and opportunity for us to continue to serve the residents of Ward 8.”
Nikki Peele, Founder of Eat Shop Live Anacostia, and Director of Marketing & Business Development for ARCH Development Corporation, agrees. “Martha’s Outfitters will fit perfectly into the fabric of what is fast becoming a destination station for visitors on both sides of the Anacostia River.” says Peele.
Revenue from Martha’s Outfitters fuels Martha’s Table’s food and education programs. Both locations welcome clothing donations to help maintain racks and shelves filled with clothing, housewares, lamps, mirrors, and small furnishings.
For now, donations can be dropped off at Martha’s Outfitters at 2114 14th Street NW, Tuesday through Saturday from 7:30 am to noon.
