From a 1929 building located in historic Little Washington, Virginia, Robert and Joanie Ballard offer their customers an artful and eclectic mix of home decor, vintage, fine art, rugs, and men's and women's accessories. The shop and gallery is always evolving, changing, and new and unique merchandise is added weekly to their hand-picked collections.
The shop and gallery is situated just one block from the world-renowned “Inn at Little Washington,” the 5-star Relais Chateau which attracts an international clientele to the stunning landscape called Rappahannock County, Virginia. The Ballard's combine their love of unique merchandise, great design, fine art, and quality textiles into a stunning shop and gallery which has received numerous accolades. Most notably they were voted "2013 Best Gift Shop" by Readers of Virginia Living Magazine and by the Editors of SOUTHERN LIVING MAGAZINE as one of the "Top 50 Shops In The South." Other notable press can be found in the Washington Post and the Washingtonian Magazine.
