Renew, Refresh, and Re-do



Hooray! This project was successfully funded on October 10, 2013.

Help us revitalize a DC favorite on 14th Street!


UPDATE: We've reduced our fundraising goal as will be financing most of our renovations from other sources, but still want you (our community) to join us for a portion of our renewal! Read our latest updates to learn more!

PULP, an independent retail greeting card and gift shop, is looking to make some much-needed improvements to our store and to our online presence! We’re asking for your help as we make some enhancements to PULP to match the great products we stock and for you, our awesome customers.

  • Install new carpets on the stairs and on the mezzanine level
  • Paint the entire store
  • Finish and seal the concrete floors
  • Install new fixtures and improve displays for products throughout the store
  • Improve our storage systems
  • Replace our front windows and renovate the front and rear entrances
  • Improve our environment systems


PULP has been in business for over ten years, but not much money has been invested in capital improvements. It's important for us now to refresh the store to keep up with demand and ensure that it meets the needs of our customers.
