Apothecary Spices

This holiday pop-up gathers Alexandria artisans all in one place for a cool, curated experience. Browse whimsical prints from Blue Lark Designs and Christine Witmore. Spice up your home decor with goods from Laura Hooper Calligraphy. Wear your Alexandria pride with ultra-hip T-shirts from AVA Apparel, and prep your Christmas tree with funky ornaments from Meg Biram. Veteran-owned Chris's Dishes will be selling irresistible goodies like beer-infused pastries!

You can find the full list of vendors on the event's website or Facebook page. There are some real gems here, so if you go a little crazy we don't blame you!

For some additional flair, DIY workshops will be held from select businesses. Crafters of all ages can brew their own bath bombs, decorate cookies, or make their own chalkboard ornaments. Plus, enjoy a complimentary Port City beverage! All of these would make lovely presents for someone special (including yourself!). Food will be available for purchase from Rocklands Barbeque & Grilling Company, and of course, Port City Brewing Company will keep the drinks flowing at their taproom, so grab a pint while you're there. The more, the merrier!
