Cool Yule Shopping Review: Gatehouse Shop at Claude Moore Colonial Farm

Info: The Gate House Shop at Claude Moore Colonlal Farm at Turkey Run
6310 Georgetown Pike, McLean, VA 22101
Open Wednesday – Sunday, 10 am to 5 pm
(703) 442-7557

I’m a fan of the Claude Moore Colonial Farm at Turkey Run, which presents a farm as it might have appeared in 1771, complete with historic interpreters.

If you’re hoping to avoid mall crowds for your holiday shopping, check out this small gift shop, which is located on the farm premises (right next to the CIA).  William and I went to their Holiday Open House on Tuesday, November 17.

You’ll find an assortment of jewelry and ladies watches priced at $12 and up, enchanting, ornate enameled boxes priced at $15 and up, a selection of honey and preserves, hand-crafted soaps, and children’s toys.  The shop also sells some second-hand items and I found a Fitz and Floyd china Santa Claus ornament in perfect condition for $2.50.
