We’re Evolving!


Jun 25, 2013 antique, new space, shop, vintage 0 Comments
Several months ago we were informed that our home on Mount Vernon Ave in Del Ray was being sold and developed into a Walgreens. With mixed emotions we began looking for a new home for Potomac West Interiors & Antiques and Not Too Shabby Consignments. We are excited to announce that we have FOUND one! The space was a little rough around the edges but we are in the process of transforming it into a rEVOLUTIONary home furnishings and accessories shopping experience. 

While we paint, scrub and clean we will share photos of our new location. Keep your eyes here for announcements about where to find us and when we will be holding our grand opening and goodbye sales at our current space. 

Thank you for being a loyal customer and we cannot wait to show you more!
