| OTBD Annual Party

Story + Photography by Catherine May Taylor

The Old Town Boutique District (OTBD) recently got together at Augie’s Mussel House in Old Town for a networking night out. Attendees celebrated with fabulous drinks, food, and of course looking their best. The OTBD showcases more than 30 unique shops right in Alexandria. From gifts, apparel, wine, and food – you can find something for everyone. Shopping local and supporting someone’s art or craft is truly the root of any city and its uniqueness. Visit and you’ll find a list of OTBD member stores and their wares. You can also find upcoming events, sales, and a monthly “Love Local” guide that features tips and trends. If you find you don’t come to Old Town Betsy Weissman, Megan Podolsky + Maria Elizabeth enough, OTBD shops might make you wish you lived there!
