Thanks to Lisa from Quarter Life for spotting this (she really is the go to source for everything vintage in the area). Dr. K’s Vintage Store is coming to 16/U, a spot formerly held by Pink November. I’m not exactly surprised that Pink November closed, as it wasn’t affordable, nor were the people working there very friendly. They never really seemed to get back on their feet after their first store closed at 13/U.
Dr. K’s will make the 1500 block of U Street something of a destination for vintage shoppers. Lisa wondered if this could be bad for the other shops, but I think that it will mean a lot of people will come just to visit all of the shops, and not favor one over the other.
No word on when Dr. K’s is opening, but I’ll keep an eye out.
