Raise a Glass for Small-Biz Saturday

We at the Brass Knob, along with our neighbors up and down 18th Street, are gearing up for Small Business Saturday, the first Saturday after Thanksgiving where those who are weary of Black-Friday big-box shopping can go at an easier pace (and get better stuff!) at independent boutiques.

sbs-2014-logoWe’ll be serving coffee and cookies in the morning, and wine and cider will come out in the afternoon while the old-time string band, The New Southern Cowtippers, will be playing from 1-4 pm. Browse our inventory of classic antique knobs (naturally) along with other vintage hardware, lighting, architectural elements—even stained glass.

We’re offering 10-percent discounts off hardware, and 20 percent off everything else.

Even as we write this, renowned muralist Aniekan Udolfia is painting a mural at 2423 18th Street NW to celebrate the local businesses here in Adams Morgan. You can see the finished result by next Saturday.

“Supporting local Adams Morgan businesses is a great alternative to the push and shove of Black Friday,” says Kristen Barden, executive director of the Adams Morgan Partnership BID. We heartily agree.

Here’s the full schedule of what you’ll find here. We hope to see you soon!
