Scout & Molly’s Boutique

Scout & Molly’s

It’s OK if you want to get all dressed up, even if you have nowhere to go. It’s especially OK if you just so happen to order a new dress, and in the process donate one to a female health care worker serving on the front lines of the coronavirus crisis. That’s exactly what you can do through Scout & Molly’s in Ballston Quarter. Simply select the dresses you want for yourself online, then select an equal number of dresses (of equal or lesser value) to donate. Free shipping is provided, and you can specific the dress recipient yourself. Best of all, there’s no limit on donations. // 4238 Wilson Blvd, Suite 2230, Arlington (Ballston)

Stylish Patina signage

Stylish Patina

Now is the perfect time for some DIY projects, and Stylish Patina has all the tools and creativity you need to get the job done—or at least pass the time trying. Each week, owner Kelly Thompson is introducing a new kid- and adult-friendly DIY project that people can order online. Project materials can be shipped or delivered—delivery is hyper-local and does have an associated fee—or customers can pick up curbside. The next curbside pickup will take place Saturday, April 11 from 10-11 a.m.. After that, each week’s curbside pickups will take place from 10-11 a.m. on Tuesdays and Fridays. // 410 S. Maple Ave., Suite 114, Falls Church

Cheeky stemless wine glasses at Two the Moon – for your next Zoom happy hour

Two the Moon

If you’re missing that in-store shopping experience, you can scratch the itch with a visit to Two the Moon’s Facebook page. Owner Johanna Braden is posting photos daily and going live to offer shoppers a virtual tour of the store—she’s also doing so via Facetime—then taking orders and credit card payments over the phone. She’s offering FedEx shipping and free, local, no-contact deliveries (with items left on doorsteps). Curbside pickup is also an option; customers will be asked to pop the trunk upon arrival so she can place your items inside. // 6501 29th St. N., Arlington
