Make no mistake: the Tiny Jewel Box shop is exactly as advertised. This deceptively-spacious jewelry retailer, watch repairer and general home decorator builds out into a much larger facility than first realized. Although each floor has a small footprint, like a jewelry box with fold-out compartments, the multi-story shop stores more than you might think. On the first floor, one can easily be bedazzled by the diamonds and high-end jewelry adorning the showcases. Then, take the elevator up to the other floors to find goodies like glassware, frames, paperweights and home accessories, many sporting price tags under $50. Also for sale here: luggage, cufflinks, pens and, of course, jewel boxes. The Tiny Jewel Box is DC’s only authorized Rolex repair shop, and the store also has an in-house custom jewelry designer.

Mytex's computer technicians can solve software issues without even touching a keyboard—or without touching the client's keyboard, at least. When clients' systems slow or become difficult to use, the technicians work to solve the issue either by giving advice over the phone, or by fixing conflicts themselves through an online connection. Once logged in, they can settle more than a dozen issues with services including virus removal, malware removal, wireless network troubleshooting, and printer support. Clients can contact a technician by phone, over chat, or through Facebook or Twitter, but not by telegraph because the beeping bothers the office bird.
