Visit Evolution Home To Buy Unusual Gifts

Evolution Home is a consignment gift store that features 24 individual stores inside, conjuring images of the old Thieves Market that was located down the street until a fire a few years ago. It is located at6239 Shields Avenue, Alexandria.

As per the Alexandria Gazette Packet, “The evolution of Evolution Home takes as many turns as the gift selection inside. Years ago, it was a bowling alley with 10-pin lanes upstairs and duckpin lanes downstairs. Duckpins are lanes that use a small ball, about the same size as a softball, and small pins that scatter like a group of ducks when hit with the ball. There aren’t any duckpin lanes in this area anymore, and the number of 10-pin lanes is becoming a rarity too. After the bowling alleys were removed, Evolution was home to St. Claire Appliances before the consignment shop took over.”

Owner Susan Driscoll said, “Something for everyone here. We do come up with some historic, rare items from time to time”.
