The owner of this shoebox ran an ad, claiming they were looking for help when they were in their "U" Street spot. After almost a half hour of an interview, I never heard anything back from them. It would have only taken a little common courtesy. When I called and confronted them about their ethics and behavior over a month later, their owner "Faye" flipped her wig. Very nasty woman. It's no wonder that they have to move from place to place, trying to stay afloat. Looks like the type of place to patronize if there is nothing else - but Thank God, there ARE other places. They "need" to close.

An update: Sisterspace moved to a new location in August 2007: 7700 Georgia Avenue N.W.

Sisterspace is a member of that rare and dying breed, the feminist bookstore. They carry all sorts of books by, about and for women. Some of the books you could, in theory, find elsewhere or buy on the internet but the best part of the store for me is the staff. They're very knowledgeable and helped me find just what I was looking for, while pointing out a couple for books that they correctly guessed I would also like.

Unfortunately, Sisterspace lost their lease on U Street last year. I visited their bookstand at a community fair a few months ago and the staff told me that they were looking for a new location and are selling at events around the District in the meantime.
