Showing Love for our Community this Valentine’s Day: The Love Yourself Gift Box

2020 was a real doozy for our brick and mortar businesses! For this new year, I decided to really focus on partnering with my amazing neighbors in as many ways as possible. What makes Alexandria so amazing to do business in is the incredible bond that our small business owners have. Even folks who directly compete will help lift each other up. The “Love Yourself Gift Box” is my special way of showcasing some of my favorite neighbors and giving you a way to spoil yourself this Valentine’s Day. I’ve gathered some neat little things from Bellacara, Lotus Blooms, Penny Post, Red Barn Mercantile, and The Shoe Hive. It’s the perfect way to treat yourself!



These boxes will be ready for pick up or shipping the week of February 1.

Some hints on what this box includes (we don’t want to totally ruin the surprise!)

  • The latest from Danielle
Danielle, owner of the fibre space shop, has been knitting since the age of six or so, when she completed her first project – a Cabbage Patch doll scarf. A Pittsburgh native with a degree in international development, she moved to the D.C. area to find a job and quickly established a career in non profit management and fundraising. For extra cash, she decided to turn her hobby into a job and taught knitting classes in the evening at area shops. With a heavy dose of sarcasm and a tough love style of teaching, Danielle quickly developed a following of students – busy D.C. professionals looking for a creative outlet. In October 2006, she struck out on her own with Knit-a-Gogo, Inc. – offering knitting classes and events all over the D.C. metro area. Before she knew it, Knit-a-Gogo had grown out of control and Danielle moved to the next natural step – a full service yarn shop. In July 2009 fibre space was born and has been rockin’ ever since. When she isn’t behind the scenes with a mocha in hand, Danielle is hanging with her daughter or lobbying for small business needs at City Hall.
