The Christmas Attic

I have been blessed to be working in conjunction with the most amazing Christmas boutique store there is. Have you ever walked into a boutique shop and just felt a sense of peace and happiness? Many times my daughter and I had ridden our bike past the Christmas Attic, located in the historic center of Alexandria, and wondered what it would be like to go in. And the first time we did, it was beyond our wildest imagination. It was a fairly warm/hot August day and I walked in only to be enveloped by the Christmas holiday. It was wonderful! From October-December both the top and bottom floors are filled with Christmas decor:

Pyramids

Nutcrackers
Snowmen
From January-September the second floor remains ALL Christmas decor while the bottom floor rotates in various holiday items depending on the time of year:

Valentine's Day
Halloween
Thanksgiving
And other holidays of course. I've only been with them since September so all holidays from March-September are missing. :) But just in case you are looking for something less festive and more as a simple gift for a friend or family member, they have plenty of cute, practical gifts as well!

Candles
Wine
Kitchen Towels

And more! I enjoy myself each and every time I go in to take pictures for the website and blog. Many of the store items can be bought online but if you're in the area and haven't checked out the Christmas Attic yet, do yourself a favor and head on over. You'll be met with such peace and tranquility when you walk in the door. You'll be glad you went.
