In Memoriam: Barbara Nelson –Owner, mentor and friend

On Saturday, January 20th our store owner, Barbara Nelson, passed away.  Since the early 1970’s when she and her husband Bob bought the store from Al Reiter, Barbara worked hard to make the store the best it could be.  She cared very much about our customers and staff and we will miss her greatly.

A Celebration of Life will be held Saturday February 3, 2018, at 2 p.m at the Friends Meeting House, 2111 Florida Ave., NW Washington, DC 20008. In lieu of flowers donations can be made in Barbara's honor to Martha's Table.
