Last night was our big shopping event at Ten Thousand Villages in Alexandria, VA! Despite the gloomy weather, I think that it went very well. It was cold and raining, but many people stopped in and chatted, and I was thrilled to share our story with them. The ladies at TTV were so wonderful, giving me two tables to setup. I had one right in the front, where people walked in, and then a second in the back, by the coffee samples...so I set out some cookies!
I took a few photos in the store...I loved their ornaments, and all of the red jewelry!
Here I am, sporting the lovely Ava!
This is the front of the store, right when you walk in the door.
We are so grateful to Alicia and her staff at Ten Thousand Villages Alexandria for hosting us. I loved meeting her and hope to visit the shop very soon! We were so appreciative of the support we got from the people who visited the shop, and hope for similar opportunities in the future. If you have a shop in your hometown where we might visit, please let us know!
