About Us


Violets in the City is a Christian owned company based in America’s City, Washington, D.C.

Violets in the City, named after my grandmother who passed away from pancreatic cancer in 2013, offers authentic, gently pre-loved and new luxury shoes at a fraction of their original retail value. These heels are for the fashionably discerning woman who aims to make a statement! Violets in the City provides instant access to one of a kind, eye-catching, indulgent additions to your shoe collection.

 Our shoes embody my grandmother’s “one of a kind” personality and spirit. Violet wore heels well into her senior years and I’ll always remember the first time she taught me to walk in heels.  

So, to all of my “Violets” let’s show the world that there is power in pretty! 


P.S. – There is no guilt associated with this pleasure: 10 percent of all sales  will go to supporting operations at The DC Dream Center. My grandmother wouldn’t have it any other way!
