Did you get a chance to check out The Old Town Shop at their new Union St. location???

What a parade yesterday! What a beautiful day. Thanks to George Washington Birthday Celebration and everyone who helped make the parade run as smoothly (and as fun) as possible!

Get game ready! Shop local, shop OTX, shop The Old Town Shop!

Check them out at 104 S. Union St, in their historical new home!

The Old Town Shop, voted Best Gift Shop by Zebra readers for two years in a row, has a new home in the new year—across the street at 104 South Union Street.
I first met Old Town Alexandria in 2005 and it was love at first sight, but the relationship didn't blossom into a deep and abiding love until 2018 - the year I starting working at The Old Town Shop 🍍. In my years at 105 S. Union I met so many Alexandrians and learned so much from them, knowledge I then passed on to visitors who were shopping in the store. Soon I was reading ALL OF THE BOOKS and answering more complex questions and it was there that this tour guide was born.

Even though I no longer regularly work at the shop, over the past 3 days I got to be a part of the team that counted every last magnet and ornament, helped box them all up and move them across the street to their new home at 104 S. Union. So excited for the reopening in February...it's gonna be a beautiful new chapter to an abiding love story!
If there was ever a season to shop local, the 2021 holiday season is it! After almost two years of pandemic effects, now coupled with current supply chain issues, shopping small, shopping local just makes sense.

Start your holiday shopping early at your favorite local gift shop… The Old Town Shop! Dedicated to the history and charm of Old Town Alexandria!

Shop small; Shop local; Support small business this holiday. Odds are, you can find everything you need and everything they want right in your neighborhood.

On my way home this afternoon I just *had* to swing by Old Town's newest shop SHOP MADE IN VA - only open since this past Thursday! Such a nice addition to local gift options. Be sure to put it on your list with The Old Town Shop and Red Barn Mercantile for holiday shopping this year. Or, shopping for yourself like I *might* have done today. 🤭 check out my goodies from Best Life Organics and Still Waters Collection 🤗.

I was introduced to the work of Rachael A. Peden Products when I worked at The Old Town Shop - the best gift shop Old Town Alexandria! - and I am now, it seems, addicted to her hand-painted historic figures.

Although designed to be tree ornaments, I am using them as shelf decor in my office and also plan to take them to future vendor events to add a little more context and charm to my table. 🤗 Who wants to bet that I'll have added even more to my collection by my next event?! Already have my eye on the Apothecary! 😍.
