I've lived in Charlottesville for a few years now and never stepped foot in The Virginia Shop at Barracks Road. Yesterday I went because my Aunt was in town for the holiday and was pleasantly surprised. The staff was very friendly and helpful and there were so many exciting and fun things. The Virginia Shop is not just for tourists!

I used to come here every time I needed to buy gifts for anyone outside of VA. Today, I went in and the assistant manager refused to honor the discount given to UVA students past and present. My bright orange UVA shirt, the UVA related gift cards in my wallet, and even my knowledge of the actual discount wasn't proof enough for her. Why would I carry my old student ID in my wallet even after I graduated years ago and moved away? She was very rude about not making an exception even though apparently it was a new rule to crack down on UVA-student-wannabes. I don't like dealing with attitudes when I visit my hometown I will be ending my tradition of visiting the VA shop whenever I'm in town. I only paid the higher prices because of the staff and friendly atmosphere I'd previously found there.

The Virginia Company is a small gift not to far from UVA. The prices were high but they did have some unique Virginia products. Not a good place to bring young children.

This is the store for all things Virginia. Or at least all kitsch Virginia. If you are lookign for a gift for a graduate or new transplant, this is not a bad place to look. They have cville puzzles and pictures, ornaments and afghans. We through a virginia themes party and bought virginia ham and peanuts. But, most of what they offer is pretty cheesy, so there is not much use for a regular trip to this store.
