Old Town Alexandria, part II


As promised, some shop windows in Old Town. This isn’t really a window, but there are some reflected in the mirror.

martini glasses

How fun are these martini glasses?

antique cab

It’s a bit on the formal side, but I love things like this.

antique bottles

Couldn’t really get a good angle on these bottles, but I like the old glass. Everything inside this store is fabulous.

red lampshade

I was initially drawn to the red lampshade, but the old framed travel prints are a favorite too.


Have never eaten here, but I love Lebanese food and the look of this place.

Finally, a couple of random shots:

AX green

I’m wondering if this green was popular in George Washington’s day. Come to think of it, the color of the dining room at Mount Vernon is awfully close:

red awning

They have some great yellows in Old Town, don’t they?

  1. I want those martini glasses! I’m usually more of a margarita girl, but I’m willing to switch to martinis just to use those glasses.

    I love the store windows and especially the store front reflected in the mirror. I do love all the yellows.

    I love all of the different shots but the martini glasses are my favorites. Hallmark stores have something very similar in wine glasses, I just recently got one as a gift. They are so much fun!

    Thank you for sharing all the gorgeous photos with us!

    Beautiful photos, I like the shop with the old glasses and f course the Antoques shop. Today the cheerful glasses would great as well (bit of a bleak day).

    I love the framed vintage advertising in the lampshade shot. Those pieces always seem fresh and interesting to me.

    You’re right about those yellows…

    Oh! How I wish you lived in my part of the world! I would induct you into our happy little club, the Martini Mamas. I have a the Lolita “Retrotini” glass! Lovely collection.
