What makes a tight-knit community? People. Our area is blessed with
people who care about family, friends, strangers, businesses, and beyond.
As we head into the season of giving, which kicked off a couple of weeks
ago with Small Business Saturday--strive to seek out meaningful gifts in
our marvelous local businesses.
If you're throwing a party during the holidays, you can
be sure to have fabulous sweet treats on hand. A quick
call or visit to Cakes by Happy Eatery will set you up
with something special and delicious. Since 1984, this
bakery has continuously expanded its selection of freshly
prepared, made-from-scratch creations.
Perhaps you're participating in a holiday cookie exchange
but don't have time to bake. No problem! They have an incredible array of
fondant-decorated sugar cookies to delight one and all. If you're a chocolate
lover, you may want to opt for chocolate mousse tarts, various chocolate
pastries, or for true diehards, a Bche de Nol--the ultimate chocolate
decadence in an amazingly light and airy sponge cake with buttercream
frosting. The bakery makes savory treats too--a remarkable variety, in
fact--and yes, they even cater! To learn more, call (703) 530-8898.
Old Town Manassas is blessed with a wonderful variety of small businesses.
A leisurely walk up Center Street provides an amazing selection of places
to visit--beginning at Creative Brush, a studio where you can see some of
the fi ne art works crafted by Mary Reilly and Christine Raymond. Just a few
steps up is NOVA Music Center, with an incredible selection of ukuleles,
accessories, sheet music, and more.
A little further up the street is Knock
on Wood, which has an amazing
array of hand-crafted woodworking
design pieces and laser-engraved
and etched products. Right next door
is The Things I Love, which speaks
for itself with its array of beautiful
home dcor and gift items. Cross
the street to Calico Jack's, where a host of local organic products tempt
visitors. Head back to Main Street to visit Crossroads Tabletop Tavern for
a bite to eat and a fun board game with family or friends. These are just
a handful--but there are more to explore!
