Established in 1997, Miss Pixie's opened at 1810 Adams Mill Rd. NW in Adams Morgan in a tiny 650 square ft. with 18 foot ceilings. Miss Pixie quickly learned to 'stack it deep and sell it cheap', and most of the weekly inventory was gone by the end of each week.
Miss Pixie's in Dupont opened on 20th St. NW for two brief years when Miss Pixie found herself unable to give both stores her full attention...and surrendered to her Adams Morgan location!
In 2006, the building on Adams Mill was sold and Miss Pixie had 2 months to relocate. Wanting to stay in Adams Morgan, Miss Pixie's moved a block away to 2473 18th St.NW. In 2008, Miss Pixie's was offered a 4,500 street level space on 14th street with garage, basement and upstairs.
We again packed up and moved in April of 2008 and we have been very happily busy here at 1626 14th st. ever since. It is a perfect space in the middle of what has become 'furniture row' for urban shoppers. [Description via, Photos via]
