It\’s not hard to spot a pop-up these days. The empty warehouse you pass on your commute is suddenly a vintage clothing store. The abandoned space on the corner is now a hip coffee shop. Whether they\’re open for one night or one month, one thing can be agreed on — pop-ups are at the height of cool for consumers. And for retailers, they just make sense.
A stroll through Northern Virginia\’s Old Town Alexandria often entails a walk
along the waterfront, a historic tour along the uneven brick sidewalks or a visit
to a nearby cafe. And if you\’re lucky, a run-in with Miss United States.
