Do you love exploring gift shops? If so, you may want to check out The Old Town Shop, a fun place in town that carries souvenirs of both Old Town, Alexandria, and DC. Whether you’re a local or tourist, it’s worth stopping by! They sell magnets, shirts, ornaments, tote bags, cookbooks, soaps, coasters, trivets, and much more.
As soon as you step through the doors, you’ll see it’s a large, historic cobblestone building that’s bright and roomy to walk around in. Everything is arranged neatly, making it easy to look around and feel comfortable while shopping ‘til you drop. They have themed sections throughout the store, including Locals’ Alley, The Port, and Kids Cove. In the Locals’ Alley, you’ll find homemade items ranging from soaps to candles and jams. The Port has authentic features of Old Town with historical markers to check out. The Kids Cove is a fun section with little tables and chairs for children to play with pirate and treasure chests, teddy bears, and other educational toys.
