Shopping List √
Power Bar √
Hold on tight. The sprint until Christmas has just begun. While it’s great to be able to shop on-line after hours, shopping small and local makes us most happy.
Now that the psychic has departed,
we predict that shopping at the shops on and near
fashion-filled blocks will be more fun than ever. Combine the stores dotting the Libbie and Grove area with the Shops at 5807 and River Road Shopping Centers I and II, and you’ve got a whole day of local and small business shopping that should put a dent in your list.
If you find yourself in need of some Christmas spirit to make your shopping merry, we’ve got a couple of suggestions.
Have you visited Old World Accents‘ new store in Carytown?
It’s light and spacious and filled with Christmas treasures for the hard-to-shop-for folks on your list.
I was tickled to find these new vintage-looking Shiny Brite ornaments by Christopher Radko at a delightfully reasonable price.
Tinkers may be a bit out of the way, but you don’t want to miss this whimsical shop.
Showcasing a variety of Christmas trees that we guarantee will put a smile on your face, the store is packed with possibilities for your posse.
As we did a bit of pre-shopping, we got the sense that our local merchants are feeling pretty optimistic about the holidays.
Let’s help them make that prediction come true. After all, with the plethora of small shops in RVA,
why would you shop the ordinary?
