“Collect things you love, that are authentic to you, and your house becomes your story.”
— Erin Flett, Designer
With the richness of history and style in the DMV area, it is no wonder vintage, consignment and antique shops are popular and noteworthy. In the Alexandria area, there is a vintage shop trail, worthy of a Saturday afternoon.
529 Kids Consign. A small boutique with quality brands for maternity and babies; the name is based on the college savings plans 529s.
Acme Mid Century-Modern. This shop is a visual adventure to a designer as a greenhouse would be to a gardener. A shop and studio of artwork and furniture that can be used in staging- including for movies and television shows.
Elinor Coleman's Vintage Mirage. An estate sale mecca, this shop has a high turnover of inventory. Step back into time of Jackie O, Watergate and the Mellon fortunes with this treasure shove.
Mint Condition. Straight out of Sex and The City, you will wonder if you stepped into a shop or Carrie's closet. Higher end brands line the shelves such as Jimmy Choo and Chanel.
Diva Designer Consignment. Named after the puppy of the owner, this shop is like walking into a stylist home. Featured in many media outlets, the website doesn't display the merchandise due to the turnover.
Bellies and Babies. This shop is for maternity and babies alike. What is unique for this shop is that it has maternity rentals.
