Every decent neighborhood needs three things: a good school, a mailman that barks back when dogs say hello, and a good hardware store to meet your indoor and outdoor needs. Frager's Hardware has served as the last of those on Capitol Hill since 1920. Frager's Lawn & Garden Center has helped their neighbors' outdoor foliage thrive as well, providing sound advice for year-round garden maintenance.

Events at this year's Mid-Atlantic Red Fruit Festival include tastings of more than a dozen tomato-related recipes, ranging from pizzas to Bloody Marys, with wine pairings suggested for each. The recipes come from entries in a local contest, with the festival matching each recipe with a renowned chef to bring the dish, dessert, or drink to life. The Mid-Atlantic Red Fruit Festival fosters a philanthropic element as well, with its "Seeds to Schools" program, which collects and distributes seeds to school and community gardens, and its partnership with Common Good City Farm, which grows food for low-income residents in Washington, D.C.

Before Comfort One Shoes' sole experts are allowed to fit a single shoe to a customer's foot, they must graduate from Comfort One University and undergo a mentorship process. It's only then that they can help shoppers find their desired footwear, whether it be lace-up Ziera boots, On running shoes with CloudTec technology, or Thierry Rabotin shoes, handmade without uncomfortable, rigid components. Alongside men's and women's footwear, the shop stocks an assortment of bags and accessories such as colorful iPhone cases from Triple C Designs that protect phone exteriors and conceal scratches from the last time you transformed into a werewolf. Comfort One Shoes also seeks to better the world through creative philanthropic efforts, such as collecting 25,000 shoes for those without and offering their employees half their pay and time off to volunteer in the community. Perhaps such initiatives are part of the reason Comfort One Shoes earned the National Shoe Retailers Association’s Retailer of the Year Award in 2011.

When it comes to footwear restoration, the experts at Cobbler’s Bench Shoe Repair don’t just go through the motions. Instead, they put in the extra effort to return each pair to a like-new condition, a quality instilled by the company’s founders, Charles and Sara Stern, in 1946. All repairs are completed within three days and use equal or better materials than the original manufacturer, which helps protect shoes from environmental damage and teasing from snobby loafers. Cobbler’s Bench also maintains an offsite plant with special equipment to carry out particularly complicated repairs.
