“This is a great event for the community and the Commission is pleased to be a part of it, said Erik Moses, Chief Executive Officer, DC Sports and Entertainment Commission. “A wide variety of unique items are for sale and the DC Armory has plenty of space and parking to accommodate bargain shoppers.

There is something for everybody on your list, be they professional or amateur traveler, adventurer, scientist, gardener, history buff, photographer, animal lover, student or teacher.
