Seen & Heard: Another Old Town Alexandria Retailer Closes

The Old Town Trading Post, a unique gift shop/souvenir shop in the heart of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia has closed its doors. Couldn’t find any reason given on the shop’s Facebook page.

The shop has been for lease since at least the beginning of 2016. My guess would be the shop lost its lease. Did you shop at the Old Town Trading Post? What were your thoughts about the shop?

You can find more photos of the closure at this link.
