Bit of the Eastern Shore Coming to Georgetown



Recently, Tugooh Toys moved its shop from 1319 Wisconsin up to 1355 Wisconsin Ave. because their lease ran out and a new lease would be too expensive. A sign has gone up in the old space announcing the future tenant: American/Holiday, a homegoods store from St. Michael’s on the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

There’s not a lot of information publicly available about the store other than its Facebook page. A Yelp page on the St. Michael’s shop offers this bit of information:

This place just opened a few months ago, and I am so glad it did! The shop is chic, tasteful, and AFFORDABLE, with a great variety of home goods, gifts, and a small selection of women’s clothing. The St. Michael’s location is the flagship for the owners (who are from Washington, D.C.), being just ahead of a new Georgetown spot opening soon. American Holiday is a must see!

Sounds like it could be a good addition. Located right next to Random Harvest and close to Jonathan Adler and Restoration Hardware, this could solidify this part of Georgetown as a great place to shop for your home. A good kitchen shop like William Sonoma or, better yet, an independent shop like Old Town’s La Cuisine could really put it over the top.
