On Saturday, October 2nd, Mount Vernon Avenue in the Del Ray neighborhood of Alexandria, VA shuts completely down to vehicle traffic and hundreds upon hundreds of artisans and artists descend with their white, pop-up tents for this year's “ART on the AVENUE”. The Artists come from as nearby as Alexandria to as far away as the Northeast and the Carolinas to offer their oil paintings, hand-crafted jewelry, hand-sewn clothing, pottery and vases and plates, lathe-turned bowls and objets d'art, garden ornaments, Christmas ornaments, baby clothes, decorative arts, handmade stationery, glass-works, etc., etc.... I could go on, and on, and on. And you could spend hours, and hours, and hours wandering up and down Mount Vernon eying the amazing wares on display and available for you to purchase for yourself, or as gifts for others. This is also a perfect time to begin that EARLY holiday gift shopping.
Bette’s Bags has been selected as a 2010 artists and will be located at space W194. We are so very excited that we want to share the Art on The Avenue experience with all of our friends and fans.
