Forge Industrial Works is a fascinating, fun store that just opened in Old Town Alexandria. I discovered them last weekend as I went to the Alexandria Arts Festival, glanced at the window but didn't walk in because I wasn't sure what the business of the store actually was. On my way back, I went in and was immediately captivated by the charm and "comfort ambience" of the furniture and accessories. I mean, really...what fun...a gumball machine! A DINER sign! Six inch high metal letters! Metal toys! Industrial strength (truly!) furniture! Much more! And photography opportunities everywhere!! I think they are having their grand opening celebration this Thursday, September 21, 2017 at 5:00 pm, I could be wrong, but stop by anytime, the place will make you smile!
