The southwest waterfront hotel is collaborating with the quintessential Americana shop, The Great Republic, to bring unique, highly-collectable historic items, as well as made-in-America gifts conveniently to guests while visiting the capital for the inauguration festivities.
The Great Republic, based in Colorado Springs, Colorado with a retail shop in CityCenterDC, Washington’s premier luxury shopping center, specializes in rare books, forgotten treasures, vintage flags and maps, as well as modern day collectibles.
With over 30-plus years of sourcing the world’s finest antiques and “off the chart” goods, the pop-up retail shop will give guests the opportunity to shop and marvel at the exceptional collection of items, without leaving the comforts of the hotel.
A few of the carefully curated items available include a beautifully framed 38-star American flag, circa 1876, a first edition engraving of Washington’s famous crossing of the Delaware, a first edition of Mark Twain’s classic novel, “Adventures of Huckleberry Finn” and a fully restored 1946 Indian Chief Motorcycle proudly displayed in the hotel’s lobby in celebration of its American design.
From January 17 to 22, 2017, the Great Republic pop-up shop located on the lobby level of Mandarin Oriental, Washington DC will be open to guests and the public daily and by appointment.
