Business Profile and Reviews
REVIEWS FROM CUSTOMERS:
Selin Studio - Old Town Alexandria - "What a beautiful little shop! Upon entering, you're greeted by the wonderful smells of Marcela's essential oils, and by the charming owner herself. You can tell she took her time in carefully selecting her merchandise - from delicate sculptures to handcrafted tokens and trinkets, everything is yoga-inspired and comes with a story. Our staff visited Marcela's Yoga Boutique yesterday just to browse, but we ended up treating ourselves to a selection of delicious loose-leaf tea, colorful yoga mats, and a beautiful Himalayan salt lamp to brighten up our waiting area. Nothing like doing some great gift-shopping while supporting a small business!"
Michele S. - "Marcela, you have chosen a path in life which many want to take but few actually dare to and by doing that you have given yourself the potential to change at least one life every single day. Entrepreneurs don't wait for chances, they create them - just like you are doing...."
