|All That Glitters Then
An iconic landmark of Clifton, Virginia for over two decades, All That Glitters has established itself as a go-to store for jewelry and accessories in the area. Offering small town charm, coupled with a vast collection of well-known designers, this boutique was initially the brainchild of Martha Mikeska. Opening in Texas in the early 1980’s, All That Glitters quickly called Clifton, Virginia home once Martha’s husband; Col. Mikeska was stationed to the Pentagon.
