The Purple Goose Children’s Boutique in Alexandria, VA
The Purple Goose Children’s Boutique in Alexandria’s Del Ray neighborhood is simply one of a kind.
Tutu’s hang in mass profusion, hair accessories, shoes, and girly girl socks jam the front counter, and trying to see all the merchandise - well, its hopeless! And these are all good things!
Originally conceived as a consignment shop, the Purple Goose was purchased in 1992 by Paula Hoelzel and moved to its current location at 2005 Mt. Vernon Avenue.
