Archie’s Gardenland

If you are looking for something special to wear south of the ankle, family-run Stanley Eisenman Fine Shoes is where you should start. David Eisenman started the company in 1950, and his son, Stanley, worked in the warehouse as a teenager. Today Stanley runs the shop, and his wife Barbi oversees the selection of designer handbags and accessories.

Redenta’s Garden

This Arlington nursery that celebrated 25 years in business in March, sets itself apart from other nurseries with fun details like a refurbished airstream surrounded by retro chairs, free yoga on Sundays in the spring and a potting bar offering demonstrations and classes. Billing itself as a spot for the “modern gardener,” it’s the ideal place to go for yucca, agave and succulents.
