Local Valentines are the Sweetest

Made in Arlington vendors may not be holding pop-up markets or selling goods in the Library Plaza Shop this Valentine's Day, but they are busy creating new items that will send the right message. Locally made (with love) and supporting small business goes right to the heart of what makes Arlington great. Many vendors offer delivery and pickup but don't wait to find the right treat for your sweetheart.

Sweets, lots of sweets are right in Clarendon. At Artisan Confections, small batch chocolates are topped with exquisite designs that tempt the taste. And next door at BakeShop the daily creations are a delicious surprise.

Looking for a unique way to celebrate? Why not take the southern route to Bayou Bakery in courthouse. The piping hot beignets will leave you wanting more. Doughnuts anyone? Head to Good Company Doughnuts in Ballston for an array of flavors not seen anywhere else. Both Bayou and Good Company have taken their community seriously during the pandemic and actively provided food to serve those in need.

Nothing says love like jewelry. Bracelets from BBirdwatcher are straight from the heart and meant to touch the soul. From vintage, remade and repurposed, K.Summers jewelry takes on new meaning with charm and purpose.

Whether you say it with blooms from Company Flowers, select art from Melanie Kehoss, photography by Stephanie Misar, or pick up pie from Acme Pie or pie+ from Livin the Pie Life, Made in Arlington has you covered this Valentine's Day.
