MOVING FURNITURE. She was shabby before it was chic (Ha Ha Ha!!). And now she has a new store in Adams Morgan. Miss Pixie has found new space now that uber developer Douglas Jemal has plans, and no one is saying what (condos, mega-restaurant?), for her old space on Columbia Road.

New location 2475 18th St. NW

Pixie has very reasonable prices for "furniture and whatnot." She has a great eye for that dresser you need and that lamp you dont need but buy anyway. Her offerings are sized for urban homes, not for the McMansions in god knows where.

Remember check out the new store (near "the Diner") on Thursdays for the best selection.

Also arriving in Logan Circle the neighborhood from Reston is Dragonfly Antiques. Kim brings a selection of Chinese, Tibetan and Burmese furniture and collectibles. The website says she "works directly with suppliers of authentic, hand crafted pieces, bringing the finest quality antiques and contemporary pieces to you at the most competitive prices." Very cool.

Dragonfly, 1457 Church St. NW


The DC Council was briefed on the revised lease for the baseball stadium. The vote is set for Feb. 7, and it will be a close call. Plus the lease will be amended again to make Wall Street happy. ... Bethesda's Woodmont Triangle gets dense housing development. Plus there are incentives to build low-income units.
