Cha Cha’s

201 E. Main St.

The Virginia Shop
Barracks Road Shopping Center

Talk about an impulse buy: Richard Burton once bought Elizabeth Taylor a $960,000 jet they had flown in the day before. You won’t find anything like that Downtown favorite Cha Cha’s, but you will find a few other things you can’t live without: quirky kitchen supplies, sparkly costume jewelry, magnets with snarky sayings, and more. At The Virginia Shop, pick up some local flavors—literally! There’s peanuts and other edible items on offer, in addition to higher-end Charlottesville-themed tchotchkes.
