Pay your taxes, get some handcrafted soaps

Stepping into the lobby of a local government office building usually means you want to vote absentee in an upcoming election, pay taxes or utilities, or file for permits.  Business as usual. But in Arlington, November and December at 2100 Clarendon Blvd. are anything but predictable.

Thanks to a partnership with Arlington Public Library, visitors to the building will have a chance to get started on holiday shopping with unique items, all made in Arlington. In the Plaza Library Shop, located on the first-floor lobby, artisans, entrepreneurs and makers all have items for sale, marking a new venture celebrating Arlington’s creative businesses.

So where’s the soap? Every Thursday, additional vendors will be on hand in the lobby to demonstrate, sample and sell more unique items. George’s Botanique Aromatiques will be there on November 9 from 11am – 2pm with beautiful hand crafted skin care products in time for holiday giftgiving.

Check out all the vendors and weekly features here.
