Sometime this past spring, I entered my name for a chance to visit Alexandria, VA in what was billed as a "Star Spangled Summer Giveaway". No further thought was given to it until, on my birthday in June, I received an email from Molly Morris of Alexandria's Convention & Visitors Association saying I'd won.
Needless to say, we crossed several activities and sites off the list, and I'll likely be sharing some of our experiences in one or two upcoming posts. Sister M & I managed to get some great vintage shopping in on the trip.
Wait till you see what I picked up while in Alexandria! (Hint: I participated in an online auction prior to our going, knowing if I won I'd be able to pick up and avoid shipping costs. When my husband asked what I was going to be picking up, I said "pottery". That reply was so he wouldn't react negatively to the word dishes!) ;) The photo below is another hint.
Here's a link to the follow up post that gives the answer: Treasures from the Trip to Alexandria.
