About Us

Join us for District Rebel Market November 24, 2018 at Dock5 @ Union Market in Washington, D.C. from 11am-5pm

Check out this one-of-a-kind collaboration with Etsy and American Express, where you can shop small for handmade, small batch, and locally produced products. Just in time for the holidays, you’ll find thoughtful gifts like handmade jewelry and candles, drink mixers and teas, accessories and original art, and you’ll even have the opportunity to make your own gifts at our DIY stations. Admission is free and the first 50 attendees will receive a swag bag filled with goodies from our exhibitors.


Behind the Scenes:

Hi! I’m Amanda Preske and I am the artist/jeweler behind Circuit Breaker Labs. I transform broken electronics (circuit boards, keyboards, wires, components) into wearable art.

With District Rebel, we seek to curate a collection of artists and makers that put a unique, modern  spin on traditional art + craft. If you have any questions, you can reach us at DistrictRebelMarket@gmail.com

I’m also the team captain of CREST and am assisted by my wonderful co-leaders:

Captain: Amanda Preske
Leader: Katie Harley Meek
Events Officer: Jaqueline Oduro
Communications Committee: Cindy M Liebel
