Handmade by LMAC opens this week at One Loudoun

A new shop dedicated to spotlighting local artists and artisans is holding its grand opening this week in Ashburn. It’s called Handmade by LMAC and it will open on Friday, May 5 in One Loudoun.

It’s the second location for the burgeoning brand. There’s already a large Handmade by LMAC shop in the Dulles Town Center shopping mall.

The LMAC in the name stands for “Local Makers, Artists, and Crafters” and that’s what the store specializes in — all sorts of items from jewelry to scarves to cutting boards to holiday decorations to salsas to candles — and everything is made here in the DC area.

It was just two weeks or so ago that The Burn reported how LMAC was taking over a vacant 2,000 s.f. spot on Exchange Street at One Loudoun. The spot is just a couple doors down from The Yard Milkshake Bar.

The grand opening event starts around 12:30 Friday and there will be local dignitaries on hand to cut the ceremonial ribbon. There will also be raffles and other special offers.
