Established in 1973
Today's Cargo originally started out by selling gold chains on a card table at Oronoco Park in Old Town Alexandria. Gladys Irvin, founder, would sell these at the flea market on Saturdays. Having been a wife of a man in the military, they lived in several countries in Asia for some time. She maintained her relationships with several of the jewelers she had met over there. So….s

he never really knew what she would be selling on Saturdays until she received her shipments. Thus, Today's Cargo was born. Check out our website for the rest of our history! We offer an expansive and varied collection from 14k gold, diamonds, vibrant gemstones, antiques, pearls, and watches to sterling silver, beads, fun fashion jewelry, scarves, and purses. Our jewelry pieces and accessories vary in style from classic to modern, simple to artsy, whether you want work-conservative or Saturday night showstopper. At Today’s Cargo you’ll feel free to browse yet comfortable to ask our friendly staff for assistance. We provide full repair service for your gold, silver, fashion jewelry, and watches, and are able to restring and redesign your bead and pearl necklaces. Appraisals, engraving, and ear piercing service are also available. See our website, or call for store hours.

As we rejoice in Christmas and continue to celebrate our 50th year in business, we are nostalgic for our past, grateful for our present, and hopeful for our future. I can only imagine what Gladys would think of us now! Earlierin the week, long-time clients told me that they had purchased their wedding bands with us in 1973 and it gave me chills! Unfortunately, the groom recently lost his wedding band due to weight loss so we gladly ordered a replacement. Before leaving, they inquired after Donna and the bride wanted me to tell her that the “ladies in black” were doing just fine (frequently checking in with Donna, the customer told me that she was referring to her three black kittens)! Donna, in residence almost as long as Gladys, can tell some wonderful stories from the last five decades. She frequently says we should write about it. It’s been a privilege to serve the Old Town Alexandria community and all of its visitors over the years but we couldn’t have done it without a great team. We have had so many employees come and go over the years with most fortunately becoming like family, just as it is with the clients who have come through our doors. We are humbled and look forward to the new year and exciting new times. Thank you for your continuing patronage and
friendship. We wish you all a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year! (Stay tuned for exciting news in 2024!) May God bless you all.
