Did you know George Washington had a distillery?!? It is located at his grist mill not far from Mount Vernon! In 1799 it produced about 11,000 gallons of whiskey. Small batches are still made and sold by Mount Vernon today. You can also purchase whiskey accessories at our shop!

We will never forget. πŸ‡ΊπŸ‡²
β€’
Twenty years have passed since the unimaginable has happened. For me, I was only 9 years old watching it all unfold on television. For many more it was/is extremely tangible and personal. As I think of what to write for our shop I am reminded of an email our boss and shop owner Valerie sent us just yesterday. Her words were commemorative, challenging and very much needed to our staff. I share them below for those who would like to read.
β€’
"I hope each of you will take time tomorrow to acknowledge β€œPatriot Day” in any way that touches you.

Patriot Day is a holiday observed in the United States on September 11 to commemorate the lives of those who died in the 2001 terrorist attacks on the World Trade Center in New York City and the Pentagon in Virginia and those who perished when the hijacked United Airlines Flight 93 crashed in Pennsylvania. The holiday also recognizes those who died attempting to rescue people trapped by the attacks. ...

Alexandria experienced the Pentagon attack in a personal way. Fire engines blared, ashes littered our town, smoke was ever-present, the air was eerily quiet for days, loved ones were unaccounted for and some perished. This day is emblazoned in our minds and hearts forever. It was a solemn time of unity in our community, where everyone was just a bit nicer to each other for weeks to come." - Valarie I.

Love my β€œLOVE” Virginia sign hanging over my JMU diploma! Nice to bring a little VA back to TN. Enjoyed visiting your cute shop last weekend and can’t wait to go back! 🍍
Enjoying the beautiful morning, listening to the waves in Ocean City, MD and drinking coffee in my new mug. Priceless

Big Thank you from Lil Miss Kiegan and our family! Old Town Shop gave her belated Birthday presents when she went to buy an item with her birthday money! Very generous and caring store! Great people and a great experience! Thank you again!
Hello Dave, my husband and I along with my associate Larry Massey, met you down by the waterfront on Saturday evening. You encouraged us to stop by your shop and I want to let you know that we did. The ladies that were working at the store were fabulous ! We did a some shopping for our grandchildren and learned about the history our your farmers market and the locals that host events in your store. I have to say what a lovely time we had. Your town and your store in particular brought back fond memories of when we used to visit Kennebunkport Maine. Thank you for recommending that we stop.
The absolute cutest shop. We will pop in frequently 😍😍😍
