Back-to-School Shop at These Local Boutiques
Nearby shops promise some great finds—and even some great bargains.
This 5-year-old Arlington gift store carries items for the home and for folks of all ages, including kids’ gear and apparel.
For those days when your child needs a little boost, they’ve got Compendium lunch notes ($9.95). They also have a range of leak-proof Swell bottles ($25-$48) to keep kids hydrated. And if you’re tired of JanSport and L.L. Bean backpacks, you can try the Scout variety ($58), which can be monogrammed in house.
