Alexandria, VA Shopping this Season


With hundreds of independent boutiques, Alexandria, Virginia invites shoppers to opt small for their one-of-a-kind local gifts with personal touches from local business owners in a magical setting of holiday wonder. Reminiscent of a real-life Dickens Village complete with European flair, Alexandria’s centuries-old brick-lined streets twinkle with holiday traditions. This year, you’ll want to “shop small” and “shop sooner” to make sure you get the gifts you want in time for the holidays. Browse holiday gifts in store or consider curbside pickup or online shopping at select retailers. Stay tuned for more Shop Small experience announcements throughout the season!
