Shinola, known for its Detroit-built watches, bicycles, journals, pet accessories, small leather goods and leather care, will host a neighborhood block party on Saturday, October 3 from 2:00 to 7:00pm. The brand has partnered with DC Central Kitchen for the day-long bash, featuring a variety of District favorites, including Compass Coffee and Jrink Juicery mobile vendors. In addition to in-store beer tastings, an on-site photo booth and lawn games, guests can expect live musical performances from the Howard Gospel Choir, a live DJ and a special, to-be-announced headliner.
Shinola opened their third nationwide flagship store to Washingtonians in mid September, marking the brand’s tenth brick-and-mortar location. The 5,000-square-foot corner building was originally home to the Studebaker showroom in the 1920s.

In 2011, Shinola, a Bedrock Manufacturing Company, LLC brand was conceived with the belief that products should be built to last, and they should be built in America. As makers of modern, handcrafted watches, bicycles, leather goods, journals, and pet accessories, we are proud to be based in Detroit, a community-minded city with a strong manufacturing legacy. We built our watch and leather factories within the College for Creative Studies in the former Argonaut building. As a new company with a storied name, we stand for skill at scale, the preservation of craft, the beauty of industry. http://www.shinola.com
