Where to Shop at Ballston Quarter
The first few retailers are opening this month. Here's what's in store.
Ballston marks this concept shop’s second area location (its flagship is in The Yards in D.C.). An incubator of sorts for new and emerging designers, Steadfast carries a curated selection of gifts, apparel, jewelry, accessories, food, stationery and home décor, including founder Virginia Arrisueno’s own line of chunky knitwear, DeNada. At 1,000 square feet, the kid- and pet-friendly store will be laid out “like a gallery,” says Arrisueno (she’s married to street muralist Kelly Towles), with a particular focus on Virginia wares, plus the same types of sample sales, DIY workshops, classes and shopping events that one finds at the D.C. store.
