DC Vote Campaign Headquarters: "Taxation Without Representation" license plates.

Did you know that until 1970, D.C. residents couldn't even vote for president and vice-president? The U.S. is practically the only nation in the world where the residents of teh capital city are not granted the same voting rights as their fellow citizens.

DC Vote is an educational and advocacy organization dedicated to securing full voting representation in Congress for the residents of the District of Columbia. They sell gifts and souvineers with their logos and politcal message. They also have an online store.

What to buy You have to be a District resident to get "Taxation Without Representation" license plates for your car - but anyone can buy them for bikes, or on t-shirts, coffee mugs, etc.

Your souvineers could help D.C. residents get the right to vote for representation in Congress and the U.S. Senate and spread the word about the campaign to stop "Taxation Without Representation".

What to pay $2-25 from stickers-sweatshirts.

Why Not?: Unique Baby Boutique

This neat boutique for infants and children sells designer clothes, shoes, toys and games for your little ones. It can be a bit pricey, but the items they sell are oh-so-cute, and the staff is super friendly. They usually have a clearance rack of last season's fashions at discounted prices. Last time I was there I bought a sage green pair of a sherpa overalls with a froggy turtleneck for my little girl at a discounted price. Everyone thinks it is just adorable!

What to pay $25-$150

Geoffrey Lewis, Ltd.: Custom Tailors of Distinction

The hallmark of a good tailor, aside from quality products, is unparalleled service. I'm not the best-dressed guy, and I walked into Geoffrey Lewis wearing my EMS jacket because it was cold in DC in December. The staff didn't bat an eye. Instead, they were immensely welcoming and professional.

I needed to get final fit measurements for a tux for a wedding. While the measurements I had provided got them close to the right sizes, they needed to perform a few modifications, which they would have done while I waited, but I didn't want to carry the tux around with me all day. No problem.

The other cool aspect of Geoffrey Lewis is the atmosphere. It's not old-wood, old-world style of a British tailor shop that's been in business for 200 years, but it has the right atmosphere.

So, if you need custom threads, or to rent a tux in DC, stop by and see Angelo and Helen Abatzis and I'm sure they'll take good care of you.

What to pay $100 for the rental.
