For two days only, Nana is bringing sustainably chic Toronto brand Preloved to Mt. Pleasant!
Beloved for their quirky-cool aesthetic, perfect pattern pairings, and flawless fit, Preloved has long been a favorite of Nana shoppers (and shopgirls!), and now we're bringing them back to the Nana space for one weekend only!
On February 23 and 24, the very best of Preloved will pop-up in Mt. Pleasant, from 12p to 5p on both days. The lust-worthy offerings will include a few fall favorites and lots of choice pieces from the Spring 2013 line, which is inspired by Hawaii! And you'll receive a special gift with purchase. We can't think of a better way to get in the mood for spring!
And the best part about Preloved: styles incorporate vintage materials, so no two pieces are exactly alike. Plus they're 100% ethically made, so you'll look and feel fabulous, unique, and guilt-free.
Don't miss this Preloved pop-up shop, because we don't know when they'll be back!
What: Preloved Pop-Up
Where: the Nana space, 3068 Mt. Pleasant St. NW
When: February 23-24, 12p-5p

We had so much fun at last year's Handmade Valentine Mart we decided to go for round two! The Mart is a mini bazaar to be held at the Nana space on Saturday, February, 9th, from 11am-5pm. It will feature local crafters, live music, a face painting station, and a make-your-own Valentine table! The artists will be present to chat about their wares, which will include cheeky hand printed cards and handmade silver money clips, to name just a couple of the many fabulous options. No matter what your special someone's taste, you're sure to find a unique gift that will make them feel amazing.
Don't miss this family-friendly, local shopping extravaganza!
The Handmade Valentine Mart will take place in the Nana space in DC’s Mount Pleasant neighborhood: 3068 Mount Pleasant St. NW. The event is from 11am-5pm on Saturday, February 9th, 2013.

Start the year off right with some winter wardrobe cleansing! Strip your closet of everything that doesn't fit or doesn't quite work--all those pieces that looked great in the store but somehow never made it into rotation--and bring them to Nana for our third annual clothing swap. This way you can purge the old stuff and stock up on new finds all at the same time! We know you love Nana's wardrobe staples, but sometimes it’s just nice to walk away with a bag full of free clothes.
UPDATE: The first day of our swap (January 26th) has sold out, so we've added a second day, January 27th!
How does it work?
1. Buy a ticket to participate! Tickets for the January 27th swap available here.
Tickets are $15. Once you have a ticket, just bring a bag of stuff to swap, and you get entrance to the event. Space is limited and tickets will not be sold at the door.
2. Drop off your bag of items to swap from 1-2pm.
Women’s clothing, shoes, and accessories are eligible to swap. All items must be in ready-to-wear shape: dry cleaned, ironed, no missing buttons, stains or tears, etc. The swap will be multi-seasonal; feel free to bring summer and winter attire. No sweatpants, swimwear, intimates, jewelry, menswear, or workout gear please. All items must be checked in by 2pm to ensure appropriate time to organize the main shopping area
3. Go explore while we set up
This is a great time to explore the quirky Mount Pleasant neighborhood by shopping around or grabbing brunch at one of the many local establishments.
4. The swapping begins at 4pm!
Entrance to the swap starts at 4pm sharp and stuff goes fast so don’t be late. You’re welcome to fill one bag (please bring your own) to the brim. Please note there will be no dressing rooms. The swap will end promptly at 6pm. All items left at the conclusion of the swap will be donated to Martha's Table
This is our third annual swap, and every year we've had more swappers, more amazing clothes, and more fun! Buy your ticket early!
What: Nana's Annual Clothing Swap
Where: Nana, of course (3068 Mt. Pleasant St. NW)

Mark your calendars for Sunday, December 9th! Meg arrives with her gorgeous Fall/Winter 2012 collection for a Special Trunk Show!
It's such a treat to see Meg's exclusive designs here in DC. Join Maria of meg, Tobey of Nana, Meg (herself!), and Jackie for a style-packed, fun-filled day!
It's our third trunk show with NYC designer Meghan Kinney and her label meg. Meg has worked in fashion design since the early '90s and now has her own shop (in three locations!). Her designs are clean, feminine, and just a tad nostalgic. Every Meg trunk show is a complete blast, and we can't wait to see the extended Fall collection and watch her dress women of every shape, size, and style. Seriously, this woman makes fashion magic!
