To show folks what Mosaic District has to offer, Tastemaker Thursdays was created. Tammy got an invite and brought me and Wave along. Thanks, Tammy! Tastemaker Thursdays is a chance to check out five boutiques/shops in the Mosaic District and get to know their business a tad bit better. Before getting started, we met up with the host of the tour at Angelika Lounge, located in the Angelika Film Center, for drinks.

The first stop of the tour was Artisan Confections. This shop houses delicious handmade chocolates. The owner, Jason Andelman, gave us a brief history of how his shop came to be and delved a bit into how he makes his chocolates. We got to sample a few and they were really good. Even the dark chocolate and I am NOT a fan of dark chocolate.
Next up: Ah Love Oil & Vinegar. This blew me away because there were so many different types of oil and vinegar that I never knew could even exist. And to be mixed this way and used that way. Mind blown. It also shows that you can be passionate about anything and everything. Seeing the owner speak about her love for oil and vinegar made me appreciate the shop even more.
We walked a few doors down to COURAGE. b. This fashion boutique has locations in NY, NJ, CT, FL, CO, and MD before finally opening a new location in VA. COURAGE. b was created to bring high quality, classic, feminine and affordable fashion.
