Mad for vintage furniture and furnishings with a Don Draper flair? Acme Mid-Century + Modern – a period furniture, art, and home goods boutique – today officially opened in its new location in the heart of Old Town’s shopping and dining district. Alexandria Mayor Bill Euille and Councilwoman Del Pepper joined shop owner Pierre Paret and invited guests to cut the ceremonial Grand Opening ribbon and welcome patrons to the store’s new location at 128 S. Royal Street. The larger store will house expanded inventory of mid-century through modern period goods.

“We’ve had incredible interest from both the Old Town community and visitors to the area alike, and our larger store will allow us to offer customers even more choice in these period pieces,” said Paret. “We’re also very excited to join the Old Town Boutique District as we open the doors to our bigger space.”

Guests at the Grand Opening enjoyed fresh coffee, organic treats from nearby Lavender Moon Cupcakery, and a selection of amazing pies from Acme Pie Company of Arlington while listening to music from the 1950s and 1960s. Special Grand Opening sales, drawings for prizes, and other events continue through June 29.

The new Old Town location complements Acme’s inventory within Evolution Home, a multi-dealer store at 6239 Shields Avenue, on Route 1 in Alexandria. The new store is open Fridays from 3-7pm, Saturdays from 9am-6pm and Sundays from 11am-5pm, and by appointment.
