My wife loves those craft fairs they have where local artisans sell their wares in little white tents. Well, this store is like having that fair inside without all the artisans.
See the ARTISTS page on the website below to see the names of the present craftspeople being featured in the store.
All kinds of knick-knacks done by local crafts-persons and layed out for you to choose.
The store is fairly small compared to a craft show but there are some great one-of-a-kind pieces that you would not find at larger venues.
If you need that special gift for someone (rather than another vacation cup that says "Vienna" on it), then try here. I am sure you'll find exactly what you need.

Although Vienna, Virginia is generally safe, there are 18 registered sex offenders in the area.
If you are a lone woman or traveling with children, it might be useful to check out the website below.
Also auto thefts in some areas of Vienna are up above the national average.
Be sure to lock your car doors. When you return to your motel room, remember to lock the door and use the latch-chain (hotel recommendation).
Doing a few smart things like that will ensure a safe visit in Vienna.

We did not find any large parks in the near-Vienna area to get some birding in on our vacation but there were a couple of small in-town parks that allowed some viewing and a nice quiet walk.
GlyndonPark (which connects with Beulah Road Park) is partly baseball field and picnic area with a playground and tennis court thrown in on the side. On the periphery of the park are some hiking trails that wind back among the trees and provide some birding.
The park has some pavillions and charcoal grills for those who want to picnic. There was a restroom facility.
Sparrows, robins, chickadees were the predominant species of birds seen. Although it wasn't the best birding place (nor the best part of the birding season), it did provide us with some quiet "down-time" and a healthy stroll through the woods.
to get there:
I-495 exit 46 onto route 123 going west. Route 123 is Chain Bridge Road then Maple Ave. Connect to Beulah Road (the same one that goes to Wolf Trap Park) and go north a few blocks and see the signs.

Favorite thing: Route 123 can become very congested very quickly.
at 8 and 11:30 am and 5 pm, traffic on Maple Avenue can become a creep and crawl.
There are not any alternative streets that travese Vienna from west to east except for very short lengths. So you are either stuck in stop and go traffic or you choose a different time to travel route 123.
