Home Rule is a cool store located on a great stretch of 14th Street (check the 14th Street NW article). I love this store because it is packed with brilliantly designed products (even the boring ones!), and interesting unique items for the home.
Despite being a tiny store, there is a lot in here to look at and love. I go to Home Rule when I am in need of something that is modern and colorful, or for a unique housewarming/holiday gift.
What can you find here? An egg time shaped like an egg with feet, silicone ice trays that make lovely square ice cubes, period table shower curtains, and so many other whacky and fun items. They also have a bunch of DC centric pieces, which make for great souvenirs or gifts.
Staff and owners are also extremely helpful and friendly and are very involved in the community. So, if you are in need of something for yourself or a gift that is different and modern, support a DC local business and give Home Rule a try.
