About Us


Named one of DC's Top-10 homegrown businesses by Destination DC!

iconsDC was established in response to a fundamental contradiction: Washington is a world-class destination where it is uniquely difficult to find high-quality gifts that are truly representative of the city’s heritage or its status in both domestic and international affairs. Our mission is a simple one: to source and make available to everyone a sophisticated selection of merchandise and product designs which properly capture the city’s majesty and history as a global cultural capitol.

The iconsDC catalogue is very much a work-in-progress and we will continue to add new finds – both vintage and contemporary - to the collection. We encourage you to visit the site frequently.
