Arlington Celebrates Local Entrepreneurs, Artists with "Made In
Published on October 31, 2017
Celebrating the creativity of Arlington-based entrepreneurs and artisans, Arlington Economic Development will host a special "Made in Arlington" holiday pop-up shop that will help Arlingtonians find that one-of-a-kind gift during the holiday season, while also supporting local businesses and artists. The hyper-local shopping experience will be open weekdays in November and December at the Plaza Shop at 2100 Courthouse Boulevard in the Arlington County office building. The effort is a partnership with Arlington Public Library.
Participating Arlington artists range from the confectionary and edible gifts from places like Kingsbury Chocolates and Commonwealth Joe to textiles from Mira Jean Designs and Jules Jewels, puzzles from TechShop-based Can You Solve Me and plenty more. In addition to the selection available in-store, individual artisans will be available each Thursday throughout the season to showcase additional goods and answer any questions from consumers.
The Made in Arlington pop-up shop will be open Nov. 1 — Dec. 22, Monday thru Friday, 8 a.m. — 5 p.m. Special exhibits from Arlington artists also will take place each Thursday over the midday hours, 11 a.m. — 2 p.m. Visit the event page for additional details and artist schedules.
