Local handcrafted shop Made in ALX has been a staple of local pop-up markets but it will soon be getting a permanent home in Old Town North.

The local artist collective announced in a release that a retail store and workshop will open at 533 Montgomery Street next month. The grand opening is scheduled for Saturday, June 11, with preview shopping days on Saturday and Sunday, June 4 and 5, from 10 a.m.-2 p.m.

Free underground parking for the shop is available at the 530 First Street garage.

“Made in ALX, a collective of more than 40 Alexandria-based makers, creators and artists, is opening a retail store and workshop space in the quickly growing Old Town North neighborhood,” Made in ALX said in a release. “Items in the shop will include candles, pet items, clothing, accessories, books, jewelry, household items, art and other items created by independent makers who live and work in Alexandria.”

The first workshop at the new location will be a candle-making class on June 4. Registration is available through the MadeinALX website.

Made in ALX also noted that the location will support Alexandria-based nonprofits Pawfectly Delicious, which provides jobs to residents with physical or mental challenges, and Rosie Riviters, a stem-focused educational organization.

“In addition to in-store shopping, Made in ALX offers online ordering with curbside pickup, local delivery or nationwide shipping,” the release said. “The website features more than 600 items from a diverse group of Alexandrians.”
