Hi readers, apologies for the lack of posts the past week – other things have gotten in the way. Prince of Petworth has some news for the 1500 block of U Street – first the sad: RCKNDY, ┬áthe home decor store, has closed. I can’t say I’d ever shopped there but I was glad to have it in the neighborhood.

Continuing the trend of the block being a fashion destination, Match Clothing will be opening at 1526 U Street. The building used to house a hair braiding business. Match Clothing seems like a pretty nice clothing boutique, but right now the website is pretty bare so hard to say the price range of the clothes they sell and where they come from.
