Artfully Gifts & Chocolate Debuts in Alexandria, Virginia

Every summer when I would arrive in The Netherlands for a visit with my mother’s side of the family, my grandfather would take me to go pick out delicious cheeses and chocolates that were so hard to come by in the United States at the time, especially in a small Southern town. I grew up with an appreciation for the best chocolates, and I have to say, Artfully Chocolate/Kingsbury Confections is a wonderful local chocolatier!

Just in time for the holidays, Artfully Gifts & Chocolate flung open its doors at their new location at the Carlyle complex, a new vibrant neighborhood of Old Town Alexandria, Virginia between the King Street Metro and the Eisenhower Metro. The store brings together all of the great Kingsbury Chocolates from ACKC Cocoa Bar and adds all of the fun, hip and cheeky products from Artfully Paper. And there is also Eric’s bold and colorful artwork for sale. Stop by and check out their new location, or if you are one of my national readers, take a look at their website as they have many products for sale online which they would be happy to ship to you!
